Looking for something fun, free and fantastic to do with family and friends? Head out to one of America's national parks and enjoy the spring blooms at Joshua Tree National Park, take the family to Grand Canyon National Park, visit Yellowstone National Park, or take a trip to another of our country's nearly 400 national parks – for free!
National Park Week takes place April 21-29 and offers free admission to all 397 parks. The National Park Service has partnered with the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America's national parks, to present National Park Week.
