With pictures, maps, and visiting tips, this new edition is an adventurer’s must have!
Broken into ten regions, each section gives highlights of select state parks throughout all fifty states. Each state is featured with a group of ideal state parks to visit, which includes a map showing the location of the state park within the state as well as one or two color photos that the traveler can expect to take in a certain times of the year. Each state park also provides information on operating times, what to see and do, lodging information, and nearby sights. Additionally, a more compressive list of other state parks is included to the few featured for each state in case the traveler’s appetite is whetted for more adventure.
One of my favorite aspects of this book was seeing how many of the state parks that I have already visited. We are a family who love to go state and national parks and enjoy nature through hiking, biking, kayaking, and so on. This is another book that we have already earmarked pages of places that we want to visit. We’re heading out to California in June and are planning to check out one of these new parks along the way. It is easy to navigate and will be a resource we consistently reference. I recommend this book for the traveler and those who love to read about nature.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
