June 17 marks Father’s Day, and it’s just around the corner. Here’s a nice gift idea -- plan a weekend camping trip, river exploration, or hiking adventure with Dad! With summer well on its way, your options are endless. Take to the rivers in your canoes or kayaks while you cool down in the water. Tackle a challenging mountain bike trail and enjoy a break at a vista, or set up camp by the lake and grill some fresh fish. Or, all of the above!
Whatever the activity, the point is to spend time with Dad. Get outside, enjoy the beautiful weather, and have fun with the whole family. Check out the National Park Service for parks, hikes, activities, and events that are in your area.
Looking for ideas? This weekend, the Great Basin Astronomy Festival is in full swing at Great Basin National Park. Talk with Park Rangers and Astronomers as you gaze up at the sky, using varied telescopes for an in depth view. Explore Aztec Ruins as you tour the Aztec Ruins National Monument in New Mexico. Venture out on the water via Boat Tour at Biscayne National Park where you can snorkel along the coral reef! Visit us-national-parks.net to discover many other activities at national parks throughout the US.
