The U.S. National Parks Service is turning 98 in a couple of days from now and will be offering a great perk which comes around just a handful of times each year.
Monday, August 25 will be one of the Free Entrance Days at the national parks, giving you access for free to all 401 parks. (Only 133 parks actually charge an entrance fee.)According to NPS.gov, the “Fee waiver includes: entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. Other fees such as reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not included unless stated otherwise“.
Here are the remaining Free Entrance Days for 2014:
- September 27: National Public Lands Day
- November 11: Veteran’s Day
While it’s important to support our national parks by paying certain fees, getting in for free is still a very nice deal!
Have you (or do you) plan to take advantage of the NPS Free Entrance Days promo?
