Zions National Park, Utah
Every year the U.S. NPS offers free admission dates to any US National park. Take advantage of these dates! They seem to be the off-season dates, but hey....it's free! If you live near a park that you have never gone to, plan ahead and try to go on these dates to save some extra money.
Dates for 2012 are:
- April 21-29 (National Parks Week)
- June 9 (Get outdoors day)
- September 24 (Public Lands Day)
- November 10-12 (Veterans Day weekend)
Alternately, HERE is a list of annual passes and prices if you can't go on the free dates. $80 for an annual pass. Yellowstone alone is $25 for 7 days, so is the Grand Canyon.
