The US National Park Service provides entrances to national parks and sites at no cost during certain holidays of the year. This is a good opportunity to take a trip with your family and save on some costs, as some of these entrance fees cost anywhere up to $35 or so. You’ll save even more if you actually live close to some of these sites, as gas expenses are a big part of road trips.
For 2021, here are a list of holidays where you can take advantage of these free entrance days…
