Interested in saving some money while enjoying the national parks? Click over to Eastern National from the Traveler and you can save 10 percent on your entire purchase of maps, guidebooks, and other interpretive materials.
This offer is good only for Traveler readers, and can save you a little, or a lot, depending on how much you stock up on. For instance, that new 25th Anniversary Explorer Edition of the association's popular Passport to the Parks? It retails for $49.95, so buying it with the coupon code NPT2011 cuts $4.95 from your purchase.
With the kickoff of the sesquicentennial commemoration of the Civil War this year, you might want to pick up 1001 Things Everyone Should Know About the Civil War ($15.95) or Faces of Discord by National Portrait Gallery ($34.95), a book that delves into the history of the faces (President Lincoln, Gen. Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant are among those profiled) contained in artworks at the National Portrait Gallery.
Eastern National offers a deep library of books that pertain to parks from Acadia to Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site, as well as such collectibles as pins, magnets, medallions, and even educational materials that will teach youngsters about the parks and our nation's history. And that's just skimming the surface.
Check out their store, but be sure to return to the Traveler to get the coupon code NPT2011 to obtain your 10 percent discount.
