Sure, you could head to the mountains for this nationwide Parks Service holiday—but does I-70 traffic in a minivan full of grumpy kids and hiking gear really sound fun to you? At this short-commute alternative, your little outdoorsmen and women can earn their NPS Junior Ranger Badge, try canoeing and rock climbing, and learn about everything from adaptive sports to gardening by visiting 40-plus exhibitors. If the kids aren’t particularly coordinated, have no fear: There are arts and crafts stations, too.
