Free Entrance to National Parks on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Want to cash in on free entrance to National Parks?

As part of the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary, entrance fees have been waved for a collection of dates on the 2016 calendar, the first of which happens on January 18, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Dubbed “America’s Best Idea,” the 409 National Parks across the country will all open their doors for anyone in the mood for some outdoor appreciation, not to mention beauty.

The fees waved include entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. However, other fees like reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not included unless stated otherwise.

In addition, if you know a fourth grader, they can earn a yearly pass to National Parks for free as part of the Every Kid in a Park program, and active duty military and folks with a permanent disability can also get free passes.

Find out more by visiting the National Park Service website.
