Off the Beaten Path

My personal favorite part of the road trip experience – getting out into nature. National and State parks are a fantastic way to experience the great outdoors.  They are inexpensive (look in to the America the Beautiful pass) or, if you have a 4th grader, even free! (Check out the Every Kid in a Park program.)
