My friends at Lonely Planet know a thing or two about travel. Far before I even considered going into travel writing, my bookshelves were lined with Lonely Planet guides. When I heard that Lonely Planet was celebrating the US National Park Service with the release of new guides and a Yellowstone trip giveaway I knew I had to share it with you.
US National Parks New Guides
Lonely Planet recently released seven new books to mark the National Park Service centennial including the hardcover National Parks of America: Experience America’s 59 National Parks. The book features incredible photography and offers an illustrated tour of every park in the US and its territories.
From when to go and how to get there to the top hiking trails and places to stay, this is the ultimate guide for anyone looking to get out and explore! If it’s your first time hiking with kids, make sure to check out my tips on teaching your kids to hike.
There are also 5 updated park guides which will keep you inspired to get outside all year round: Grand Canyon, Yellowstone & Grand Teton, Yosemite, Sequoia & Kings Canyon, Zion & Bryce Canyon and Banff, Jasper & Glacier, an area that captured my heart last of summer.
All the National Park books are currently available in-stores now and 25% off on shop.lonelyplanet.com/activity
