CONSUMER BRIEFING / TOURISM
Expedia has joined with the National Park Foundation on a new website to help travelers plan trips to national parks.
The site, at www.expedia .com/nationalparks, includes park maps and other content from the National Park Foundation as well as information about lodging outside the parks. It also includes suggestions for long-weekend itineraries and a series of stories called “Can’t-Miss National Parks.”
Although the Expedia site can be used to identify and book accommodations near the parks, it cannot be used to reserve campsites or book stays inside the parks.
For lodging options inside the parks, go to www.nps.gov. Another site, www.recreation .gov, also offers links for booking campgrounds and tours inside some parks.
