PHILADELPHIA, PA (October 23, 2017) – There’s now a one-stop-booking tool for park enthusiasts looking to plan their next vacation. Aramark (NYSE: ARMK), the award-winning food and hospitality partner for national and state parks and other leading leisure and cultural attractions, today announced the launch of its new travel website, The Nation's Vacation (www.TheNationsVacation.com), dedicated to helping travelers find the national park destination that best suits their vacation desires.
National park visitation continues to rise and, in 2016, the number of national park visitors reached an all-time high of nearly 331 million, according to the National Park Service. As interest in national park travel increases, Aramark, which manages concessions at seven national parks, has answered the call to help travelers find their favorite national park and educate them about all there is to experience at each, including activities, accommodations, culinary options, and other things to do in the area.
“With the introduction of our new Nation’s Vacation website, we’ve developed a convenient, one-stop-booking tool that helps park enthusiasts and first-time travelers alike discover the many activities and experiences available at each park, simplifies their decision making and planning process, and allows for easy online reservations,” said Bruce W. Fears, president of Aramark’s Leisure division.
The website (www.TheNationsVacation.com), which goes live today, offers a cohesive site for travelers to learn more about the individual aspects of the many properties and services Aramark manages, and discover the most exciting things to do at these locations such as exploring Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park, snowmobiling across the Sierra Mountains in Zephyr Cove, Nevada, or dining in The Majestic Hotel's historic dining room in Yosemite National Park.
Visitors can virtually explore the various Aramark-managed and -operated concessions at parks across the country, filter their choices via preferred activity or destination, and reserve activities, lodging or campground accommodations all online with The Nation’s Vacation.
