Hat tip to Tracy . . .
Next week you will be able to get into all 392 national parks for free!
Read about it on the National Park Service website, and see if any of these parks could fit into some homeschool or travel plans for your family.
Now, there is only one in Illinois that usually charges, (and will be free next week) and it is down near St. Louis. But, there are a couple in Indiana, Michigan, and Iowa. Take a look at the full list here.
Granted, 246 of the national parks don’t usually charge an admission, so you can enjoy those for free any day of the year.
You can check out the few others that are in Illinois, or elsewhere as well.
