Fun On A Budget Idea!

Looking for something fun to do this weekend that is easy on the budget?
Why not visit a National Park! This coming weekend, January 14-16, is a Free Entrance Day at more than 100 National Parks that usually charge admission.

You could learn about an ancient people at The Aztec Ruins National Monument in New Mexico.

Or maybe explore Civil War history at Manassas National Battlefield Park  in Virginia.

Or find out about the glory days of steam trains at Steamtown in Pennsylvania.

Can't make it out this weekend? The National Parks offer other Free Entrance Days throughout the year -

April 21-29 - "National Park Week"

June 9 - "Get Outdoors Day"

September 29 - "National Public Lands Day"

November 10-12 "Veteran's Day Weekend"

There's lots to do and explore in the National Parks and Free Entrance Days make them fun on a budget!

  1. That's a good idea, However, those ruins in Aztec, New Mexico are about 6 hours away. As for saving money,the gas would probably cost the most.

  2. I thought about you when I posted about the Aztec Ruins. Maybe there is a park closer to you?
