Free National Park Weekend

National Parks Offer Free Admission This Weekend

To celebrate the Summer, the National Park Service is waiving entrance fees at more than 100 parks this weekend, June 5-6. National parks like Yosemite, Yellowstone, and the Grand Canyon will be free, along with national monuments and historical sites like Natural Bridges in Utah or the Aztec ruins monument in New Mexico. Admission to these areas usually cost between $3 to $25, and chances are you live within hours of one (if not several) area that will be free this weekend.

National parks allow you to see nature in a way that isn't possible anywhere else, and besides breathtaking views there are also a lot of fun activities to do: visiting the birding caravan in Acadia, taking a canoe through the Everglades, or exploring the lava tube caves at the Craters of the Moon preserve are just a few of the amazing experiences you can participate in. I'll be heading to Joshua Tree or Yosemite this weekend — how about you?
