Fee Free Weekends at National Parks

We are in the middle of summer and you are probably looking for inexpensive things to do with the family.
I received this link in an email from a genealogy group I am involved with. Thought it would be a great to pass on to my readers looking for inexpensive things to do with the remainder of the summer and the family can share the history of our wonderful country.
Fee-Free Weekends in Your National ParksAmerica’s Best Idea – the national parks – gets even better this summer with three fee-free weekends at more than 100 national parks that usually charge entrance fees*.Mark your calendars for fee-free weekends this summer:June 20-21, 2009 (Father’s Day weekend)July 18-19, 2009August 15-16, 2009
History is everywhere In nearly 400 national parks and every hometown. It covers everything from the remnants of ancient civilizations to the boyhood homes of U.S. Presidents to the stirring sagas of hard-fought wars to the reverberations of one woman refusing to give up her seat on a bus. History is a part of who we were, who we are, and who we will be.As you explore these pages, we hope you find what you are looking for – but even more importantly, we hope you discover something that surprises you. We invite you to learn more about history and how the National Park Service works to preserve it.
Keep saving , stay safe and enjoy these links I have included thanks to
