Buy a Passport to the National Parks book for everyone in your family, and even the kids will look forward to going to battlefields and museums.
Spaces in each region are designated for you to collect rubber stamp cancellations at each national park site you visit. The cancellations, similar to those received in an international passport, record the name of the park and the date you visited.
Collectors at heart, my kids love having their very own little books filled with stamps they’ve collected.
Nearby participating parks include: Antietam, Assateague Island, Catoctin Mountain Park, C & O Canal, Glen Echo, Fort McHenry, and Harpers Ferry; but there are literally a hundred more within easy driving distance. And don’t forget to take your passport with you on vacation so you can collect stamps from other states.
