Travel Guides from our Digital Collection

During National Park Week (April 22 – 26), why not start planning your family's summer vacation to one or more of our 398 national parks?

To help you prepare for your trip, start by borrow titles from our eMedia Catalog. Titles like “Frommer’s National Parks of the American West” is a great starting point, but there are many others that explore America’s beautifully unique terrain including “Grand Canyon National Park Travel Guide" and “Best Rocky Mountain Trips”.

While you can certainly gain practical information from an eBook guide, it takes a video to really see the breathtaking wonder of the national parks. A few visual guides that truly convey the wonders of the parks include: “Alaska,” “Death Valley U.S.A.” and the two-part series “America's National Parks, Volume 1 of 2" and "America's National Parks, Volume 2 of 2” from Dennis Burkhart. For those having difficulty finding someone to join them on a road trip, these videos make a convincing argument.

For those who want to hit the road this month you may want to plan a trip during this year’s National Park Week which runs April 22 – 26, where every one of the 398 national parks waives the entrance fee (although 265 of them are always free!).

One of best local trips includes driving from Las Vegas to Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon. At a normal price of $25 per car for each park, who wouldn’t want to save $75 during such a trip while seeing some of the most spectacular scenery this world has to offer?
