Vacations can be pricey. Whether you drive or fly, costs can add up. Luckily, the country blessed us with some of the most stunning natural wonders to visit and the best part is that they are practically free to enjoy!
National parks, state parks, national monuments, seashores and more, the National Park Service oversees 392 units protecting thousands of acres of land, water, and wildlife. All of these areas are protected and maintained in a way for all visitors to learn and explore. The parks provide a fun destination for families, a romantic getaway for couples, and uninterrupted solitude for those looking to get away. But don't worry about breaking the bank. These destinations are not only cheap to visit, but they also offer plenty of free activities. Put away your wallet and check out all the fun you can have!
