All National Parks across the United States will be completely free for entry next Monday, November 11th in honor of Veterans Day. There are over 60 National Parks across the US, and the normal cost of entry can be up to $30 per vehicle or $15 per person. All of the Parks offer unique and jaw-dropping sights and experiences, so there is no better time to take a drive and explore your local wildlife areas for free.
The Parks only offer free admission on 5 days each year; in 2019 they were January 21st (Martin Luther’s Birthday), April 20th (the first day of National Park Week), August 25th (National Park Service Birthday), September 28th (National Public Lands Day), and November 11th (Veterans Day). Veterans Day is the last free entry day this year, so take advantage of it and go for an adventure!
Some state parks will also be offering free entry; however, this varies state by state, so check your local state park’s website to find out more information. In addition, the National Parks do not waive any other fees on free entry days, meaning that you will still need to pay for amenities and any other activities, such as camping, boating, or tours. Many National Parks will also be offering special activities centered around the significance of Veterans Day for Americans, making visiting a Park the perfect opportunity to get outdoors while reflecting on the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women of the military.
