15 Great U.S. National Parks

To kick off National Park Week in the United States, no entrance fees are charged this weekend—Saturday April 15 and Sunday April 16.

If you are near any National Park property today or tomorrow, I encourage you to take the time to visit it / them.

Below are pictures from 15 great U.S. National Parks and properties I have visited.

Of the 417 National Parks properties, 59 are National Parks and only 128 currently charge fees. Most properties do not charge a fee, all of the time (not just this weekend). For instance, there is no admission fee to see Mount Rushmore (but there is a parking charge).

What is your favorite National Park?

  1. My favorite is Yellowstone, mostly because I lived and worked in the park in the late 90s. We just visited Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis, and we’ll be visiting 3 more parks this summer: Badlands, Mount Rushmore, and Theodore Roosevelt. Can’t wait!
