Grand Canyon

One of the highlights of my summers as a kid was going on road trips to national parks. Just last week we were at the Grand Canyon and showed it to our kids for the first time.

The last couple years the government has been having free days at national parks and monuments. Last week Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced the free days for this year. The first days are this weekend including Monday, Martin Luther King Day.

Park and monument entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees are waived. Other fees such as reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not free unless stated otherwise. Many national park concessioners will have special offers.

Mark your calendar for these fee-free days in 2011:

  • 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
