All National Parks Are Free This Weekend!

In a press release sent out yesterday, the National Park Service has announced that all 147 national parks the usually charge an entry fee will waive that fee this weekend.

The entry-fee free weekend will celebrate National Public Lands Day on Sept. 27th, and will honor all new U.S. citizens on the 28th. Furthermore, on Saturday, there will be special events and volunteer projects to further commemorate the 15th annual National Public Lands day.

In all, there are 391 National Park Services sites, but not all of the charge entry fees. These 147 parks that do range in price from $3 to $25 depending on the location.

This makes for an excellent opportunity to get off the couch this weekend and get outside. It’s now officially autumn, and while the days are still warm, they are still comfortable and perfect for hitting a trail. Take advantage of this free weekend to visit your favorite park and take in the scenic wonders there. Or, better yet, visit some place new, and explore some new trails. Seems like the perfect time.
