Go Climb a Rock in Joshua Tree National Park


Rock climbing is not a sport most people associate with children, but have you ever met a kid who did not enjoy scrambling to the top of a boulder or cliff to take in the view or simply feel great about being up so high?  Joshua Tree National Park in southern California is a fantastic place for your kids to get a real desert high.

Yellowstone National Park


The world's first national park, Yellowstone, offers families all the rugged beauty of the American West in a setting that will captivate young and old alike.  Geysers, hot springs, abundant wildlife, and a diverse landscape all come together for a vacation your kids will talk about for years to come.  With all the park has to offer, you will want to spend a full week here!  We stayed for ten days and did not run out of great things to do.
