My husband and I share a love for America’s beautiful and unique national parks. The National Park Service manages 401 (and counting) parks all over the US. These places range from flagship parks such as Yellowstone and Great Smoky Mountains to gems such as Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas – the smallest national park in the system!
While a handful of National Park Service properties are free, most charge admission. I’ve paid anything from a few dollars up to $25 at Yellowstone. Great news for fellow park enthusiasts - admission fees to all parks will be waived from April 22-26, 2013 in honor of National Park Week.
