National Parks– For those dads who love the outdoor life, a trip to Yellowstone National Park or a tour of Yosemite are both great options. The warm summer sun makes for a great time for a hike, participate in outdoor activities, or spot wildlife.
In celebration of summer, the National Park Service will be waiving all park entrance fees during the weekend of June 5-6. The park service will also honor this deal during August 14 and 15, September 25, and November 11. This is wonderful news for those looking forward to budget travel this summer, as some of the participating parks charge anywhere from $3 to $25. But while you will be saving on the initial entrance fee, charges for camping, tours and concessions remain in effect.
Yellowstone National Park is expecting another busy season this year, after boasting a record-breaking number of visitors in 2009. Even during the recent economic hardships, the park has enjoyed steadily impressive crowds of tourists throughout the years. This could be due partly to the fact that national parks make for relatively affordable vacations, with entrance fees being low and budget-friendly lodging options.
