A road trip should be on everyone's "To Do" list in 2023. There is always something magical about getting away from the lights and hitting the road. Grabbing your favorite snacks, and planning to see a "new to you" location or revisiting a scenic closer area. Regardless, we encourage all to write down these dates, pencil them in as a great time to load up the car, grab the kids, or even take the grandparents along for a spin to one of the more than 400 national park sites across the country in 2023.


Again this year, we are happy to share that the National Park Service has announced waiving entrance fees for ALL parks on certain days of the year in 2023. The concept is to encourage us all to explore the country's 63 National Parks and 360 designated sites. There are five dates in total, and one can appreciate all four seasons if one was to take advantage of these free entrance days.

Dates Waived:

  • January 16 - Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
  • April 12 - First day of National Park Week
  • August 4 - Anniversary of the Great American Outdoors Act
  • September 23 - National Public Lands Day
  • November 11 - Veterans Day

The fee per vehicle will be waived by the rangers at the National Park sites, however, the waiver is only for the park or site entrance, and does not cover the cost of amenities or activities at the recreational sites.
