August 25, 2016 marks the 100th anniversary for the the U.S. National Park System. The Centennial will celebrate the achievements of the past 100 years, but it is really about the future. It’s about kicking off a second century of stewardship for America’s national parks and for communities across the nation.
Most importantly, it’s about inviting you to join them. There are so many parks for you to select from including Everglades, Grand Teton, Yosemite, Redwoods National Forest and of course the Grand Canyon. The National Park System has a website, www.findyourpark.com that helps you locate parks across America.
Of course, Palmer Vacations is a great resource in finding your parks too. We have a host of tour operators that have National Parks tours for 2016 and 2017 available for reservations. Some of the tour operators, such as Globus Tours, are offering discounts for the 2016 programs as they celebrate the 100th anniversary.
Don't hesitate to contact us today to learn more about tours that visit the national parks and to reserve your space before they are sold out.
Below is a paragraph from clients who traveled out west last summer and visited some of the parks.
Our family just returned from a great vacation that Palmer helped us plan. We travelled and spent time in Yosemite, San Francisco, took Amtrak from Oakland to LA, Santa Monica, Las Vegas, and finally the Grand Canyon. We enjoyed every stop and hit all the main points in the 11-12 days we were out of town with a beautiful drive to Yosemite thru the fruit/nut orchards in northern California, hikes to the Yosemite Falls, visiting the redwoods in the national park, driving thru the mountains, Bay cruise in San Francisco Bay, seeing the sea lions at Pier 39, spending time in the wharf, visiting China town, riding the cable cars, crossing golden gate, driving the crooked street, visiting Sausalito, taking an awesome train ride along the Pacific Coast to LA from Oakland, riding bikes from Santa Monica to Venice/Muscle Beach and spending the day in Venice, driving thru the desert of California/Nevada to Las Vegas, seeing a great show in Vegas (Mystere), visiting and touring the Hoover Dam, hiking the grand canyon rim, taking a mule ride in the grand canyon, and it goes on. Thanks! J.K.
