If you happen to have some free time in April, the national parks that charge entrance fees will waive them two different weekends.
According to the Chicago Tribune:
Most of the country's national park sites don't charge visitors an entrance fee, but those that do will be waiving that cost for the weekends that bookend National Park Week, April 15-23.
The freebies — an annual tradition — are good April 15-16 and 22-23 this year. Other free dates later in 2017 include Aug. 25 in honor of the National Park Service's birthday, Sept. 30 for National Public Lands Day, and Veterans Day weekend, Nov. 11-12.To read more, go here.
