Free Visit to a National Park
Tuesday, June 21 2011
Hits : 0
Start summer with a free visit to a national park! The National Park Service is waiving all entrance fees on June 21, the first day of summer.

"The longest day of the year is the perfect time to take a short trip. Celebrate an extended Father's Day with Dad, the start of summer break with the kids, or a job well done with your favorite graduate," said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. "With 394 national parks across the country, you could opt to visit an old favorite or explore a new place. Find a reason to get outside and enjoy the extra sunshine at a national park near you."

Additional fee free days in 2011 are National Public Lands Day (Saturday, Sept. 24) and Veterans Day weekend (Nov. 11-13).
