What’s better than visiting America’s stunning national parks? Visiting the national parks for free. And now you can. National Public Lands Day (September 28) and Veterans Day (November 11) allow for free entrance to any of America’s national parks.
Little-known to most Americans, The National Park Service has created five free days for all national parks — that’s over 2000 federal recreation sites and 60 national parks to choose from, from Acadia National Park, Maine to Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii.
Admission rates can vary from park to park, but range from $3 to $20 per person, or up to $35 per non-commercial vehicle.
