Reader Participation Day: Do Your Holiday Plans Include a Visit to a National Park?
The combination of time off from work or school and an appealing destination will entice some Americans to spend at least part of the upcoming holidays in a park. For some it's an annual tradition; for others it's a special, one-time trip.
There are plenty of possibilities, from snowy slopes in Yosemite and Mount Rainier to more temperate locales such as Big Bend and Everglades. Many NPS areas also host special events in December and early January that offer a chance for a unique activity.
Does a visit to a national park figure into your holiday plans? If so, where are you headed? Perhaps you'd like to share a tip about a favorite place to stay or activity that lures you to the park of your choice.
