After World War II, forty-hour work weeks (down from 44) and two-week paid vacations became standard in most labor union contracts. Highways became flooded with family vacationers, out to enjoy their new cars and all that America had to offer. This 1949 booklet, published by Ford Motor Company, describes the recreational offerings of America's national, state, county, and city parks.
