Free Admission to National Parks
Posted on Tuesday, April 20th, 2010 at 5:12 am
National Park Week starts on April 17th and goes for the entire week through April 25th. During that time, all admission fees to the parks are waived! That means that if you have been wanting to take a trip to a national park this is the week to go.
There are 392 different national parks, from the grand to the small but interesting. Some national parks already allow entrance without a fee, but many do not. So, this is a great fun and free event to take advantage of. We are tossing around the idea of trying to hit two different parks this week.
You can learn more and search all of the states to find listing and information for all of the parks by going here.
With the nice weather coming here in the Mid Atlantic, I’ll be looking around for lots of free day trips and local entertainment that is offered for free.
Did you know, for example, that some museums offer free admissions on Sunday mornings, their least busiest times? Or that you can find plenty of free music, movies and theater shows at local parks?
Two big movie chains, AMC and Regal offer free or low cost family movies in the summer.
Church’s, local civic centers, community centers and townships often offer free pancake breakfast, cookouts, and fairs with moonbounces and other activities.
Keep checking back. When I find some good free entertainment, I’ll be sure to post it for you.
