National Park Service's 100th birthday is also a celebration of travel

Thursday, September 8, 2016

As the National Park Service celebrates its centennial, it is not only a celebration of America's natural beauty and history; it is also a celebration of accomplishment for U.S. travel. In 2015, 307.2 million people visited national parks. That number is predicted to increase by the end of 2016, and NPS wants to make sure it happens with a series of marketing promotions and initiatives to draw visitors outside.
