National Park Week

In the midst of Earth Day Week hoopla, you may have missed the announcement of National Park Week.
Did you know…that from Monday, April 22 – Friday, April 26, the national parks waive all entrance fees? So, whether it is your first trip, or the latest of many memorable park experiences, there couldn’t be a better time to get out and explore!

Did you know…that with 401 parks coast-to-coast, every American is less than 100 miles from a national park experience? National Park Week is the perfect opportunity to explore and enjoy these amazing places — so check the calendar of events, lace up your boots, pack your bag and set out on a national park adventure uniquely your own!
That's right. Sequestration be damned! The the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation partner to waive park entrance fees all week.

You needn't feel left out just because you can't make it out of the city this week.  Did you know that the NPS operates small historical sites/parks/museums in cities around the country? We visited the Statue of Liberty in Disney vs NPS.  NPS also operates Ellis Island, Angel Island...

Go find a park near you!
