Fee Free weekend National Parks August 14-15

Whether it’s Rocky Mountain National Park, just a daycation away for Denverites, or a major road trip to  Yellowstone or Death Valley, National Parks, your road trip always gets better when you ride through a national park. America’s Best Idea – the national parks – gets even better this year with several fee-free days at more than 100 national parks that usually charge entrance fees*.  That's a savings average of $20 (based on Rocky Mountain National Park 1-day Entrance fee per automobile).

Mark your calendar for fee-free days this year: THIS WEEKEND August 14-15, September 25, and November 11, 2010 (Veterans Day).

Colorado National Parks on the list are: Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, Colorado National Monument, Dinosaur National Monument, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, Great Sand Dunes NP & Preserve National Park, Hovenweep National Monument, Mesa Verde National Park, and Rocky Mountain National Park.
