See the USA, One Theme Park at a Time…

Travel and See the USA Series

RollerCoaster-CruiseAndTourPlannersWe all know about Disneyland, Disneyworld and Universal Studios, and they are awesome, but maybe you have visited them a few times already, and you’re interested in a new experience, or maybe you would like to stay closer to home…Did you know that each state in the USA has at least one wonderful theme park?

These parks feature everything a family of fun loving thrill-seekers (or an individual) could hope for, from scream producing roller coasters to adventure rides to something a little more relaxing such as river boat cruise.

Years ago, we had friends who would pack up their kids in the family car and visit several states during the summer, by the time the youngest was 12 years old, they had driven to every state in the USA. (That’s a lot of miles!)

Just think of how fun it would be if they had made it a goal to visit a theme park in every state…maybe that’s something you could do!

Whatever kind of park you would like to enjoy, you just might find it in your very own state or the state next door.
