One of the best ways to explore our great country is by visiting one of the many US National Parks. Visiting isn’t an overly costly proposition but its always even better when it’s free!
Each year the parks host a select amount of Free Entrance Days to celebrate a variety of holidays and occasions.
The last Free Entrance Day of 2014 will be tomorrow, November 11 in honor of Veteran’s Day.
According to NPS.com, “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”.
Don’t forget, to visit a park for free you don’t have to just wait for these special days since “only 133 of our country’s 401 national parks usually charge an entrance fee” according to the NPS.
Is anyone planning to take advantage of the last Free Entry Day of 2014?
