National Parks Offering Free Admission This Weekend

Are you looking for something to do this weekend? Have some fun before the school starts.! For those who are interested and enjoy visiting national parks, more than hundred of national parks will waive their admission fee this weekend, August 15-16, 2009. Take advantage of this last summer special and visit a national park for free.

The NPS (National Park Service) will allow visitors free entry during three weekends this summer to encourage Americans to visit national parks such as the Grand Canyon, Yosemite and Rocky Mountain National Park. The fee waivers (on June 20-21, July 18-19, and August 15-16, 2009) will apply to more than 100 national parks across the country that usually charge entrance fees. Fee waiver includes: entrance fees, commercial tour fees and transportation entrance fees.
