Summer 2020 is shaping up to be the "road trip summer" as people are shunning air travel and cruises and favoring the old-fashioned road trip. The national parks are beginning to reopen.
According to Forbes:
This is not only the summer of domestic travel and the summer of the road trip. It’s also shaping up to be the summer to visit America’s national parks, according to Xanterra Travel Collection and Aramark, two companies that operate facilities in some of the parks.
Lodges, dining, concessions and RV Parks in Grand Canyon South Rim, Glacier National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and Zion National Park are now for the summer of 2020. The Oasis in Death Valley at Death Valley National Park is anticipated to open on June 18, 2020. These operations are under the Xanterra Travel Collection, the largest operator of lodging, dining and concessions in the majority of the national parks west of the Mississippi. . It also operates the facilities at Mount Rushmore National Monument, which is also open.
