  • Use YourPassNow and Gov2Go to Enjoy Great Outdoors Month

    By NIC Inc. | | Posted in Outdoor Solutions

    To encourage citizens everywhere to get out, connect with, and enjoy America’s natural beauty, most U.S. states recognize June as Great Outdoors Month. Whether citizens are looking for a beautiful beach, picturesque hike, historical experience or some other outdoor adventure, they can find it both by going cross-country and without venturing too far from home.

    According to travel and hospitality company MMGY Global, most American vacations — some 85 percent — are domestic, and a car is the transportation mode of choice for the majority of travelers. In fact, AAA predicts about two-thirds of the 88 million families taking a vacation this summer will drive to their destinations.

    When a trip to a national park or federal land is on the agenda, YourPassNow can get visitors outside faster so they can spend more time exploring some of our nation’s most impressive and inspiring outdoor places. Developed in cooperation with the National Park Service, YourPassNow streamlines the purchase of entrance passes, which previously were available only in paper form at physical park locations and approved resellers.

    YourPassNow makes it easy and convenient for visitors to go online from their computers or mobile devices to purchase entrance passes and access permits for public lands. Visitors can buy and store passes right on their smartphones through for 13 U.S. parks and federal lands, including:

    • Acadia National Park (Maine)
    • Castillo de San Marcos National Monument (Florida)
    • Colorado National Monument
    • Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area (Oregon)
    • Everglades National Park (Florida)
    • Grand Canyon National Park (Arizona)
    • Lake Havasu Shoreline Sites (Arizona)
    • Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks (California)
    • Theodore Roosevelt National Park (North Dakota)
    • Wayne National Forest (Ohio)
    • Whiskeytown National Recreation Area (California)
    • Yellowstone National Park (Wyoming)
    • Yosemite National Park (California)

    And, don’t forget, YourPassNow and all of the park entrance passes are also available on NIC’s citizen-centric platform, Gov2Go. Just visit the Gov2Go store to access YourPassNow.

    Everyone, let’s get outdoors this month, as well as throughout the year and skip the lines at some of the country’s most popular destinations with YourPassNow.
