Now that the government shutdown is over, all of our national parks are once again open to the public. That’s good news, but there’s great news, too. This weekend (Nov. 9-11), in honor of Veterans Day, the entry fee at all of our national parks will be waived.
While most of our national parks are free to the public every day, fee-free days are a nice way to save at those parks that do charge entry fees, like Grand Canyon National Park ($25 per car) and Yosemite National Park ($20 per car). Certain other charges will still apply, however, like camping fees.
There’s so much to do in our national parks. Take a look at a few of my posts that will help you make the most of an exciting day or weekend in one of our country’s beautiful parks:
If you plan to go out and explore nature this weekend, be sure to check out the state-by-state listing of participating national parks to ensure the park you’d like to visit is, in fact, free this weekend. Get out there and have fun as a family!
