Great Places to Visit in 2017

We really enjoyed visiting the Petrified Forrest National Park in April of 2016.   This is a special effects photo we took while visiting the park.

WASHINGTON — Visitors will be able to enter any of America’s national parks for free on 10 days in 2017 selected by the National Park Service.
Here are the fee-free days for 2017:
  • Jan. 16 — Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • Feb. 20 — Presidents Day
  • April 15 and 16 plus April 22 and 23 — National Park Week Weekends
  • Aug. 25 — National Park Service Birthday
  • Sept. 30 — National Public Lands Day
  • Nov. 11 and 12 — Veterans Day Weekend
“National parks, known for their priceless beauty, are a bargain anytime, but on these 10 days in 2017, they really will be priceless,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis.  “We want everyone to visit their national parks, and fee-free days provide an extra incentive to experience these amazing places.”
On these days, all NPS sites will waive entrance fees for all visitors. The waiver does not cover amenity or user fees for things such as camping, boat launches, transportation, or special tours.
