My husband and I share a love for America’s beautiful and unique national parks. The National Park Service manages 397 (and counting) parks all over the US. These places range from flagship parks such as Yellowstone and Great Smoky Mountains to lesser known gems including Pipestone National Monument (MN) and Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park (HI).
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 21-29, 2012 in honor of National Park Week.
