Travel Cheap and See Priceless Sights

June 13, 2008

National Parks passIf the Contiki tour of Europe is a little beyond your means this summer, look closer to home for exotic locations and strange landscapes. The national parks are wonderful places for weekend getaways, road trips, hiking, camping, swimming, photography, picnics, or just time away from your family (or with your family, if you don’t mind).

You can pick up an annual park pass for $80 that’s good not just for you, but for everyone in your car. Get a few friends to pitch in and for $20 each you can take multiple trips to several parks. Pack a tent and a cooler of food and suddenly you have an exciting adventure at student prices. If you want something a little fancier, some national parks offer hostels.  

If you are traveling with family, consider taking a grandparent. Seniors can get the annual park pass for just $10. If you’re traveling with some who has a disability, the pass is free. Learn more about the passes available and the terms and conditions for each.
