Planning an outdoorsy weekend sometime soon? Check to see if you can make use of one of these 16 National Park Free days!
On these dates, you can get FREE admission to any National Park Service sites that normally charge fees – including fairly expensive stuff like tours of Mammoth Cave in Kentucky (one of our FAVORITES). Mammoth Cave would normally run about $50 – $60 for our family to take a tour, so we plan AROUND days like this.
Here’s the scoop and the days coming up – mark your calendar and plan out some fun family days!
The National Park Service turns 100 years old in 2016 and we want everyone to join the party! On 16 days in ’16, all National Park Service sites that charge an entrance fee will offer free admission to everyone.
Mark your calendar for these entrance fee–free dates in 2016:
- January 18: Martin Luther King Jr. Day
- April 16 through 24: National Park Week
- August 25 through 28: National Park Service Birthday
- September 24: National Public Lands Day
- November 11: Veterans Day
These fee-free days provide a great opportunity to visit a new place or an old favorite, especially one of the 127 national parks that normally charge an entrance fee. The others are free all of the time. Plan your visit and enjoy our country’s history and nature.
