Happy National Parks Week!

yosemitespring

We're huge lovers of the US national parks so we're excited that the National Park Service has waived fees April 17-25 in honor of National Parks Week. Yosemite is just a mere 3-4 hours from Lonely Planet offices, so that is usually the long-weekend-of-choice for staff based in our US office. Spring is the perfect time to visit the parks — whether it is for the waterfalls of Yosemite, the wildflowers of Glacier or the baby animals in Yellowstone.

Our inspirational series of National Park guides features in-depth research and advice on the best sights, hikes and camping grounds. Perfect for everyone, from the road-tripping family to the serious outdoors enthusiast, our National Parks series is a beautiful addition to any visit.

Our titles include:

Banff, Jasper & Glacier

Grand Canyon

Yellowstone & Grand Teton

Yosemite, Sequoia & Kings Canyon

Special National Parks Week Promotion:

Now through May 4th 2010, get any of the National Park guides for US$14.99 (normally US$21.99) - enter the promotion code PARKS at checkout in the Lonely Planet online shop (Standard conditions apply).
