National Parks Service Celebrating with FREE Admission

The National Parks Service is turning 99 years young and you get to celebrate with FREE admission to all NPS parks around the country!

There are 408 National Parks in the US, and two of them are a fun day trip for our area and usually charge an admission fee that will be waived tomorrow.

Those are the Colonial Parks of Yorktown Battlefield and Jamestown and Assateague Island, famous for its stunning natural beaches and wild horses.

In honor of their big birthday, the NPS created a list of 99 Ways to Find Your Park. The list includes a wide range of activities that you can do in urban, nature, and historic parks.

If you want to entertain the kids and stay closer to home, check out our Hampton Roads Playground Guide! If you want some bonding time between you and nature, we have a Hampton Roads Hiking Guide too! Have fun!
