National Parks Week: Save Money and Gas

Travel in groups

We're celebrating the new Ken Burns documentary The National Parks: America's Best Idea, a six-episode series that airs this week on PBS, with tips about enjoying and protecting our natural heritage.

Tip #2: Travel in Packs

Most parks charge by the carload, so getting the gang into one vehicle is good for the environment and your pocketbook. Better yet, travel with senior citizens—anyone older than age 62 can pay a one-time $10 fee to get an America the Beautiful Senior Pass, which gets your entire carload in for free to every park.
