If you love nature I bet you’d really love to visit a U.S. National Park near you…for free! Check this out, Travel Pulse reports that the President has deemed the week of April 16-24 as National Park Week.
As a way to get us out and celebrate nature, on Saturday, April 16 every national park across the country will not have an entrance fee.
The official NPS announcement reads, “National Park Week is a time to explore amazing places, discover stories of history and culture, help out, and find your park.” The theme of the week is “sPark Connections” so each day during this week, the parks will focus on sub-themes within the overall sPark theme.
- April 16th: sPark Discovery
- April 17th: sPark Creativity
- April 18th: sPark Collaboration
- April 19th: sPark Innovation
- April 20th: sPark Opportunities
- April 21st: sPark Preservation
- April 22nd: sPark Action
- April 23rd: sPark Curiosity
- April 24th: sPark Memories
There are over 400 national parks across the country, but some don’t have “national parks” in their name.
If you do have a chance to visit one of these parks, make sure you follow the mask guidelines for each since they all vary by location.
How often do you get a chance to visit a national park? What’s your favorite thing to do when visiting a park?
