April 21st-29th 2012 is National Park Week. This means that entrance will be free this week! Take advantage of no admission fees and spend the day hiking, biking, picnicking, or just taking in the views. Most of these parks normally charge upwards of $25 so this is a great time to go! Every year for one week during the spring, all national parks are free of charge. Check the National Park website for next year’s week as well as additional free days throughout the season.
A few of my favorite national parks
