Looking for something different to do this summer? With the vacation season fast approaching, its time to start planning that fun-filled trip for you and your family and friends. But what if you’re looking for something different to do? We suggest planning an archaeologythemed trip! It’s a trip for everyone—every age group, interest, and attention span! Using the National Park Services archaeology travel guides, you will be able to visit many museums, historical societies, national and regional parks, and local sites that offer a wide range of activities and an opportunity to meet real-life archaeologists. Just remember when you visit sites, it is always good to know some rules when visiting National Parks.
