National Park Fee-Free Days 2011

You know how much I love the National Parks (and not just because I can get my NPS Passport stamped!) I think they offer some of the best vacationing the US has to offer. In order to make sure everyone can take advantage of these treasures the National Park Service has expanded their Fee-Free Days.

In 2011 you will be able to visit the parks for free on the following dates:

January 15-17 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday weekend)

April 16-24 (National Park Week)

June 21 (First day of summer)

September 24 (Public Lands Day)

November 11-13 (Veterans Day weekend)

Edwards is within driving distance of so many wonderful National Parks (including some of the most expensive ones) so take advantage of these fee-free days and plan a trip. Don't know where to start? First, check out our National Park summary. Second, National Parks Traveler is a wonderful travel blog that focuses on the goings on in America's National Parks! For more suggestions Budget Travel offers a whole section on the National Parks. Of course the National Park web page has a complete list of parks in California, or any other state for that matter.
