National Parks and Local National Forests Fee Free Weekend in Honor of Veterans Day

America's Best Idea, the national parks, is even better when visiting on one of the fee-free days at more than 100 of our national parks that usually charge entrance fees. If you are looking to take a quick last minute trip before the start of winter, now is the time to do so. The final fee-free days of 2013 are as follows: November 9-11, 2013 (Veterans Day weekend)

Additionally, there are a few other discounts you may be eligible for. Did you know that active duty military members and their dependents are eligible for a free annual pass that provides entrance to lands managed by the National Park Service, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, and the U.S. Forest Service? Also, the America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass Program also offers a free lifetime pass for people with disabilities, a $10 lifetime senior pass for those age 62 and over, and a $80 annual pass for the general public.

Additionally, all four Southern California national forests (Angeles, Cleveland, Los Padres, and San Bernardino) are waiving Adventure Pass fees as well. The only exception is the Lower Santa Ynez Recreation Area outside Santa Barbara in Los Padres National Forest.
