Cool Side of Death Valley
With some 3.3 million acres and elevations ranging from -282 to +11,049, Death Valley National Park has plenty of “cool” things to do. Maybe not “Arthur Fonzarelli Cool,” but then again, that leather jacket takes up a lot of space in the suitcase.

Summer nights in a national park include the soft glow of the Milky Way rising over your campsite, granite peaks lit by the full moon during an evening hike, and the twinkle of stars and planets from a roadside vista point.
Multiply Your Vacation Enjoyment On A Multi-Generational Trip
Have you noticed that more and more groups of travelers to America’s national parks include not only parents and children, but that grandparents are often included to join in the fun?
