About the Book

The National Parks Scavenger Hunt pairs educational snapshots of 63 national parks with a checklist of iconic and lesser-known items found at each destination. Featuring a points-based system, The National Parks Scavenger Hunt challenges kids to keep their eyes peeled during their visit, encouraging them to visit at different times of day and year to rack up the maximum number of points. 

By combining fun facts with a checklist of unique sights that families can seek out during their visit, The National Parks Scavenger Hunt will make your next adventure just a little more fun. But be careful—once you crack this book open, you’ll want to visit every national park listed! 

Each checklist offers park-goers a delightful mix of natural, historical and man-made elements—including plants, animals, geological formations, and more. Visit Glacier National Park and you’ll be on the hunt for iconic park animals like mountain goats and bears, historic red buses that visitors have been using since the 1930s, and the Continental Divide. How’s that for variety?

Whether your family is on a quest to visit all 63 national parks or you have plans to visit just one, The National Parks Scavenger Hunt is a great way to encourage your little explorers to look closer, listen longer and be present for your next trip. And the points-based scavenger hunt adds an element of friendly competition to your journey. 

As an avid park visitor myself, I love collecting the free, dated stamps from the Visitor’s Centers to remember my visit. If you’re looking for a fun way to document your own travels, consider using this book as a scrapbook. With simple illustrations and a clean layout, there’s even space in this book to expand the checklist, adding personal items of interest along the way.

Travel plays such an important role in our lives. It has the ability to change us for the better. It’s an experiential education that teaches us how to feel, think, act, and react in positive ways. Travel fosters creativity, builds confidence, and teaches us all to be more tolerant. My own kids benefit from travel every time we hit the open road. No amount of money can buy those life lessons.

Travelnitch is inspiring the next generation of explorers. We believe travel is a wonderful way to ignite the imagination and get kids excited about the world. However, we need your help to make this possible. Please spread the word and support our efforts to raise citizens of the world. Let’s go on this adventure together!
