Explore a National Park for free this weekend
By Jennifer Osieczanek
Easter is a holiday that typically brings family together. But, if playing hide and seek with brightly colored eggs isn’t your thing, there’s a perfect — and free — alternative for getting together this weekend.
To celebrate the start of National Park Week there will be no charge Saturday and Sunday at the 133 National Parks across the U.S. that usually require an entrance fee. The fee waiver includes entrance fees, commercial tour fees and transportation entrance fees.
This is the third of six free entry opportunities the National Park Service offers each year. The remaining dates are Aug. 25, Sept. 27 and Nov. 11.
Among the parks that participate in free entrance days are:
- Alaska’s Denali National Park and Preserve
- Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona
- Dinosaur National Monument in Colorado
- The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
- Glacier National Park in Montana
- New Mexico’s Carlsbad Caverns National Park
- Padre Island National Seashore in Texas
- Virginia’s Assateauge Island National Seashore
