To celebrate Public Lands Day, the National Park Service will offer free admission to over 100 National Parks on Saturday September 24, 2011. Check the list of participating National Parks, and start planning a trip. You could choose to visit Harpers Ferry National Historic Park in West Virginia or Mount Rainier National Park in Washington or so many others. Fall is a beautiful time of year to enjoy these national treasures.
The Park Service has been offering several free days each year. The last one was June 21, and after the September 24 free day, there will be an entire free weekend November 11-13, 2011.
If you can’t make it to a National Park on September 24, there is also a Free Museum Day happening on that same day.
