See Why National Parks are “America’s Best Idea”


 Explore North America with Abercrombie & Kent

DOWNERS GROVE, IL – September 16, 2009 ... What began fifty years ago on a family road trip to national parks across the country led to a lifelong fascination for writer Dayton Duncan that led to "The National Parks: America's Best Idea," a six-part, 12-hour documentary by Ken Burns, which begins airing on PBS stations Sunday, September 27. Filmed in some of nature’s most spectacular locales, the series is sure to inspire other families to visit all 58 U.S. national parks. Celebrate these national treasures with Abercrombie & Kent’s new 2010  itineraries that feature several parks showcased in the series including Alaska’s Denali National Park and Montana’s Glacier National Park, where Going-to-the-Sun Road has been described as “the most beautiful 50 miles in the world.”
