“Dad, can we drive north on Friday after school and stay in a hotel and then go to Minnesota’s only national park on Saturday? We’ve never been there before…” This was the conversation my 8-year-old son had with his father this morning. While it’s true that we haven’t yet been to Voyageurs National Park, his impetus was a bit more than just a new place to go: National Public Lands Day is this Saturday, and as part of the celebration, it’s a free entrance day in America’s National Parks.
Saturday, September 24, 2011, is also Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day, with free admission to selected museums around the country. To see the list of museums and download a free admission card, see the Museum Day website.
Are you planning to visit a new place due to one of these programs?
