Wahoo – FREE entry to US National Parks!

Well, we barely gave you time to miss us, but we have important info to share, so we’re back already. Summer vacation may be ending, but fun at the national parks lasts all year long — and you know we love our national parks! Here’s what you need to know about national park bargains over the next few months.

Fee free dates for fall. On the dates listed below, entry to all 400+ of the national parks, monuments, battlefields, historical parks/sites, lakeshores, seashores, scenic rivers and trails, etc. – is FREE for everyone! What a deal!

  • August 25: National Park Service Birthday
  • September 30: National Public Lands Day
  • November 11-12: Veterans Day WeekendEvery Kid in a Park

All 4th graders in the country can get a FREE annual pass for the whole family again this year! Be sure to ask your child’s teacher or librarian about getting the pass. What an awesome opportunity this is, and we’re thrilled it’s in its third year. You can read more about the program in a previous post.

Good for life!

And finally, seniors 62 and older can purchase a lifetime Senior Pass! Buy now — the price of the lifetime Senior Pass will increase from $10 to $80 on August 28, 2017. A new $20 annual Senior Pass will become available at the same time. You can still purchase the lifetime passes for $10, but don’t delay. CLICK HERE to order by mail (must be postmarked by August 28), or order online — both options cost $20 total ($10  pass plus $10 order fee). Or, save $10 by stopping at any national park unit to purchase before August 28. Of course, $80 for a lifetime pass is still a pretty darn good deal!!

Enjoy your next national park adventure, whether it’s for a week or a weekend, and if you’re on Twitter, use the hashtag #LuvYourNPs to spread the love!
