I grew up taking family hikes on the Appalachian Trail and long Saturday drives on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The national parks have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. That is exactly why National Park Week is my favorite week of the year.

National Park Week is an annual 9-day celebration hosted by the National Park Service and National Park Foundation. During the special week each April the national park sites across the country host special events, offer anentrance fee-free day, and encourage people to visit a site.
