You Can Visit Any National Park for Free This Month

From April 16 through 24, all sites will waive entry fees.

Perhaps you’d like to kick off spring with a picnic by the water, an outdoor stroll, or a glimpse back in time. You can do any of the above at one of Massachusetts’ national parks—and from April 16 through 24, you can do it for free.

On those days, every national park in the country will offer free admission in observance of National Park Week and the National Park Service’s 100th birthday. Many Massachusetts sites are free all the time, but Adams National Historical Park and Cape Cod National Seashore are two that will waive regular entry fees.

If none of the Massachusetts sites strike your fancy, the National Park Service’s Find Your Park tool also allows visitors to plan their excursions based on location and interest.

May we suggest a trip to Maine’s Acadia National Park, or New Hampshire’s Saint-Gaudens estate?
