While you’re making plans for summer vacation, be aware that, depending on your plans, you may need to strike one popular historic location off your list.
Welcome to the weekend, y’all! Here are the articles we wrote this week, in one convenient place.

For one week in April, the National Park Foundation (that’s the official charity of the United States’ national parks) celebrates our country’s treasures…our national parks. This year the big event commonly known as National Park Week will be held April 21 through April 29 and to celebrate, national parks across the country will host a bunch of special events! Take a look at this awesome schedule they have scheduled!
