National Parks Offer Free Summer Weekends

Family hike in Yellowstone If the recession is throwing a wrench in your plans to take restful vacation, The National Park Service is offering its own bailout: All 147 NPS sites that charge entry fees will waive them for three weekends this summer. Mark your calendars: On June 20 and 21, July 18 and 19, and August 15 and 16, you won't pay a dime to get into Yellowstone and other parks.

For a family of four visiting Yellowstone, this translates to a savings of $73, which will get you into the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming, about an hour from Yellowstone's east gate.
