Drive-to vacations and getaways in American National Parks
America’s national parks offer endless opportunities for fun for everyone, from casual visitors to park enthusiasts.
«In 1916, legislation creating the National Park Service was enacted. The noble vision behind the act provided generations of Americans and visitors abroad with the gift of experiencing our country’s greatest treasures. We are thrilled to offer Marriott Bonvoy members a convenient way to plan road trips and explore historic sites and national wonders with their friends and families with this unique travel partnership. The opportunity to experience breathtaking scenery in pristine wilderness settings while giving back to the National Park Foundation is invaluable and will help preserve the parks for future adventure seekers».Brian King, Global Officer, Digital, Distribution, Revenue Strategy & Global Sales, Marriott International
