I Love Free Stuff!

In past posts, I’ve written about some of our great national parks and wildlife refuges – Shenandoah National Park, Bull Island SC, Grand Canyon National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, and Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  These parks are beautiful jewels in our country’s crown.  I love visiting them, and was a little sad to find out that today, Martin Luther King Day, meant that entry to national parks was free – I didn’t know!  Ah, but no worries!  It turns out there are several other days in 2015 when you can visit a national park for free – start planning your green getaways now:

  • January 19
    Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • February 14-16
    Presidents Day weekend
  • April 18-19
    opening weekend of National Park Week
  • August 25
    National Park Service Birthday
  • September 26
    National Public Lands Day
  • November 11
    Veterans Day

For more information, see the National Parks website.
