Want To Photograph a National Park? Airbnb Can Find You Lodging

The US’s national parks offer some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, perfect for the aspiring landscape photographer. The National Park Foundation recently partnered with Airbnb to create a dedicated site for finding accommodation near 10 of America’s parks.

The two organisations hope to further the conservation of park resources for future generations by promoting tourism at the national parks. Airbnb has also pledged to donate $50,000 to the National Park Foundation.

“We’ve found a powerful partner in our friends at the National Park Foundation, a community, who like ours, believes in the importance of belonging,” said Airbnb’s Global Head of Policy, Chris Lehane. “To quote Teddy Roosevelt, the founder of our national parks, ‘We have fallen heirs to the most glorious heritage a people ever received’ In this spirit, our nation’s most beautiful parks belong to the people who visit, appreciate, and experience them year after year. We’re proud that our hosts in gateway communities can play a role in continuing that tradition of making the people’s parks accessible to as many people as possible.”

Should the lofty words of Teddy Roosevelt inspire you to get out and spend some time photographing these fine parks, consider checking out the dedicated website put together by Airbnb to find accommodation.
