If you've been looking for an excuse to visit a national park, this weekend is your chance to do it for free.
On Saturday and Sunday, entrance fees -- which can range between $3 to $25 -- will be waived, The Los Angeles Times reported:
While the cost for activities such as camping, tours or concessions are not affected by the entrance fee waiver, many park partners, including area hotels and restaurants, will offer discounts and special promotions.
"Most Americans live within a few hours' drive of a national park," said Dan Wenk, acting director of the National Park Service. "Free entrance weekends offer the perfect chance to visit an old favorite or to discover and explore a new place."
