Cabins have long had a wonderful connection with the nation's park system. Whether through structures on-site or a lucky landowner who chose to build one on a directly adjacent lot, these wooded settings provide the perfect backdrop for cabins and their inhabitants' desires to reconnect with nature.
This weekend kicks off National Park Week, including free admission to all parks to celebrate the nature, history and culture surrounding these landmarks. Many parks also are hosting special events, from ranger-guided tours to kid-centric explorations, to help visitors become better acquainted with the parks.
Although I've not been to as many parks as I would like, those I have enjoyed always seem to offer something spectacular, whether it's some seasonal landscaping or a specific event. Plus, those that do have cabins on-site often have them available to rent, too, which gives prospective cabin owners an opportunity to "test drive" the experience, so to speak, before deciding to build their own.
Will you be attending any parks this week? What are some of your favorites? Any insider tips on things to see or do?
