Every Kid in a Park...for FREE!



If you've followed me for some time, you may recognize the photo above. It was taken a few years ago when my husband and I decided to take our kids on an epic road trip that included visits to the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone. The trip was truly a remarkable, wonderful experience my family will NEVER forget!

So I'm kicking off September with a reminder for all of you who have a fourth grader in your family: You can get a free pass to visit ANY national park in the United States for free this year! 

Just go to www.everykidinapark.gov to print out your special pass. It's valid from September 1 through August 31, 2018, and it grants free entry for fourth graders and up to three accompanying adults. You need to print your pass and take it with you when you visit the park. Electronic copies aren't accepted.

Not sure where the closest park to you is located? The website above includes a trip planner that lets you explore parks and sites. You can even reserve a cabin or campsite. There's also a suggested list of things to take with you.

And many of the sites are set up for groups/field trips and have programs created specifically for fourth graders.


PSST! Don't forget about this book (aff) from National Geographic Kids! Your child will LOVE it!


BONUS!!


Make it even more unforgettable! Amtrak is offering fourth graders a discount on train tickets. When an adult buys a full-price ticket, you'll get 75% off. Visit the site to learn more.
