Parks Madness BannerParks Madness is Back!

We’re excited to partner with HotelCoupons to host our third annual Parks Madness contest! Every year, we find out our fan’s favorite national park by putting them head-to-head in a bracket competition.

You can vote each week for your favorite parks. After 5 rounds, we will crown the winner of Parks Madness 2018!

This isn’t just a chance for us to recognize the national parks you want to see. We’re helping you to get out and see these great lands. When you vote in our competition, you can enter to win:

5 weekly winners will win an America the Beautiful annual pass to explore all the federal recreation sites for a year. That’s over 2,000 sites, including the national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and more!

1 grand prize winner will win an America the Beautiful annual pass, plus a prize pack to jumpstart their outdoor adventure. This includes a fitness tracker, backpack hydration pack, and a gift card to a major outdoors retailer – altogether valued at over $375!

Enter to Win with HotelCoupons

This year, you’ll find the weekly voting posts at the HotelCoupons blog. You can get notified when the next round of voting – and the next chance to enter to win – are available.
