Summer is right around the corner and planning your family vacation has never been easier thanks to Fodor’s Travel. For 80 years Fodor’s has been a trusted resource offering expert travel advice and in celebration of the National Park Service Centennial in 2016, their experts unveiled a new suite of online tools and updated guidebooks to help travelers plan an unforgettable family trip to America’s incredible natural wonders. Throughout 2016, all parks, including the venerable Yellowstone and Yosemite, will celebrate the centennial with activities and initiatives that allow visitors to revel in their natural, historical, and cultural splendor.



There’s no better way to explore a national park (or a few!) than to hit the road and let’s face it, picking which parks to visit and what scenic routes to take can be overwhelming. Fodor’s National Park Road Trip Itineraries, found on Fodors.com, include the most road-trip worthy adventures to parks across various states. And that’s not all you’ll find – National Parks 101 tells you everything you need to know about planning a trip to the national parks, including booking, budgeting, and packing tips; and National Parks Finder helps you find and compare national parks based on activity, region or season. When you use these tools with Fodor’s National Parks of the West, which includes completely updated coverage of the best sites, dining, and lodging in and around each park, you’re sure to have the best summer trip yet.

Listening Library Audiobooks


And while you’re on the road with your family, you’re going to need some travel entertainment. The solution: Listen to an audiobook! With an audiobook, you can completely lose yourself in the journey, enjoy the scenery while listening to a great narrator tell you a story. Ideal listening with kids in the car, audiobooks expand vocabulary, teach pronunciation and improve reading comprehension. In fact, 85% of what we learn, we learn by listening. Whether it’s a charmingly, quirky tale for your middle grader like Jennifer L. Holm’s The Fourteenth Goldfish, a brain-teasing mystery like Chris Grabenstein’s Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, or Jack London’s classic The Call of the Wild read by Emmy Award winner Jeff Daniels, you’ll be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!

Where will your summer plans take you?

    I don’t know if my comment was posted or not so will try again. No travel plans this summer as I am broke. I might be able to take my kids to a water park close to me this summer.

    We are going to Kelley’s Island this summer. It should be a relaxing trip. I will have to check out that Fodor’s Guide. We are planning a huge trip to the Grand Canyon next year and it looks like it would be helpful.

    My favorite authors and cover models…some of them…are coming to Tulsa for a signing event so I’m having a “staycation” at The Hard Rock in July.

    I am toying with the idea of a trip to Miami at the end of July and also a possible trip to West Virginia.

    A cruise is on the agenda for February 2017.

    No plans at all. I do cat rescue and have a bunch of kittens right now. Its tough to find someone who will take over. The last time we went anywhere was no kidding 1992. We did see the Grand Canyon then though and it was magnificent.

    I’m hoping to go to Oregon this summer. I don’t have to fly which is great. I’m thinking about Crater Lake.

    This summer our travel plans include a trip to Erie, Pa for the State park there as well as Waldameer. We will also head up to Niagara Falls (US side as dh refuses to get a passport!) and then finally our last weekend getaway will round out at Put in Bay for a day trip at the end of the summer.
