My favorite National Park that I've visited to date is Haleakala National Park in Maui. We drove close to the top, hiked down for a few miles and then back up and continued to the very top of the summit. Every time I look at these photos, I'm just amazed by the natural beauty of this place!
- Minute Man National Park, where you can visit historial sites like Concord and Lexington and bike or hike along the Battle Road Trail.
- Boston Harbor Islands, where you can take a ferry over to visit these natural treasures close to the city. And if you don't end up visiting this week, consider doing the June 2nd 5K on Spectacle Island - $35 includes the ferry ticket, 5K registration, t-shirt, and lunch!
- John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor, which is in both MA and RI, contains various opportunities for sightseeing, hiking, boating, bicycling, fishing and other activities
And April 28th is Junior Ranger Day, so if you have a youngster that you want to take to the park, consider visiting that day. Children can earn their own “Junior Ranger Badge.”
Check out the video below for more details, and I hope you get a chance to enjoy this opportunity this week!
