National Park Week 2010

All 392 U.S. National Parks will be open to the public with free admission from 17 to 25 April 2010. This is a fantastic opportunity to visit some of the most amazing scenery in the world, and one which many Americans should take. Astoundingly, I run across people all the time who haven't yet visited even one of the National Parks. These parks are a real treasure for America, and one to be enjoyed and passed on to the next generation too.

The parks will hold a wide range of special events during this time period, to coincide with what's expected to be high visitor numbers.

While visiting a National Park is always worthwhile, the removal of the park entrance fees during this period means it's a perfect opportunity to visit such gems as Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks.
