One of the greatest gifts America has is its amazing national parks. A trip to one makes for an unforgettable family vacation, and now thanks to Airbnb, it’s even easier to visit them.

In a newly announced partnership with the National Park Foundation, Airbnb will be offering an easier way to find accommodations within close proximity of the parks. A new page on the Airbnb site is dedicated entirely to unique places to stay, like teepees and log cabins, that are all located near 10 major National Parks, including Grand Canyon National Park, Grand Teton National Park and Sequia and Kings Canyon National Park.

The idea behind the collaboration is to make it easier for visitors to access the parks, especially during the peak summer travel season when campgrounds and hotels fill up quickly. It also aims to help boost tourism in the small, rural communities that surround many of these parks. As a family you can explore a natural wonder and discover a hidden gem in a small town while you stay.
