FREE Admission to U.S. National Parks for Three Weekends!

Remember that post about the recession and how, despite all of the obvious negatives of such an occurrence, there are quite a few offers to be had when times are this bad?

Well, here's one of the most enticing ones yet, and it comes courtesy of the U.S. government.

For three weekends -- June 20-21, July 18-19, and August 15-16--the 147 of the U.S. National Parks that usually charge admission (generally up to $25 per vehicle) will be free for all visitors.

The website contains a full list of all the parks that will be offering free admission. This includes the most popular ones, such as Yosemite and Yellowstone National Park, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage sites.

The remaining 244 national parks are always free to enter. And, for these three weekends, some twelve dozen more parks that are listed on the aforementioned link will be joining the list.

Indeed, not all things are bad in the midst of the "Great Recession." :)
