Michigan family first to visit all 418 national parks

Listen to this story

From Fox2 News:

JACKSON, Mich. — A Michigan family has arguably become one of the most traveled families in the United States, and it could earn them a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The Maitland family is the first family to visit all 418 U.S. National Parks. It took them eight years to check everything off the list. That includes the 59 areas formally known as national parks – plus every other unit that falls into categories like national battlefield sites, national lakeshores, national memorials, etc.

We confirmed with them that they are, in fact, NOT exhausted and are actually looking forward to many more RV trips together. The National Park units are always changing and improving, so they’re looking forward to re-visiting.
