You don’t need to be a tree-hugger to appreciate the beauty that our national parks have to offer. No matter if it’s a tourist favorite like the Grand Canyon or one you may have never heard of (Cuyahoga?), national parks have something for everyone.
And this Veterans Day Weekend (three-day weekend, baby!), you can enter all 58 national parks for free—which means $30 more for post-hiking treats.
Normally, most of our National Parks charge a fee from $3 to $30 for a week’s pass. But next year, sadly, prices are likely to triple—up to $70 per vehicle—for some of the most popular parks. So, get your hiking on for free this long weekend while you still can!
Here are some national park favorites that you could explore for a few hours, or a few days. And if there are none close to home? Use this day as a reminder to get outside and appreciate the natural beauty of the great outdoors.
