Mark your calendars! If your groups are itching to explore the United States' nature, culture and history, you now have further incentive: The National Park Service announced four entrance fee-free days for 2018.
January 15: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
April 21: First Day of National Park Week
September 22: National Public Lands Day
November 11: Veterans Day
"National parks connect all of us with our country's amazing nature, culture and history," said National Park Service Deputy Director Michael T. Reynolds.
"The days that we designate as fee-free for national parks mark opportunities for the public to participate in service projects, enjoy ranger-led programs, or just spend time with family and friends exploring these diverse and special places. We hope that these fee-free days offer visitors an extra incentive to enjoy their national parks in 2018."
The entrance fee waiver for the fee-free days does not cover amenity or user fees for activities such as camping, boat launches, transportation or special tours.
There's at least one national park in every state! Where will your groups be?
