  •  When I Go To A National Park I Usually (2+ / 0-)

    stay for at least a week. Often two. I am that hiker/camper guy. The Internet is great cause before I head out I can locate a place to take a shower for a few bucks every 3-4 days. They are usually in places where there are camp grounds for people with RVs. Locally owned and right out of the park grounds.

    I find that is the perfect place to ask where you can get local art work. Good food in a non-chain place.

    I can't speak for the National Parks out West, not spent a lot of time in them. But in the East, well the big parks, step off the grounds and it is strip mall after strip mall. Fast food and chain stores for as far as the eyes can see.

    I've always found this sad beyond words. I mean why would I want to go to McDonalds or a go-kart track when I am 5-10 miles from a National Park?
