Fee Free National Park Days August 14-15 for Philadelphia Area

The National Park Service is offering Free Admission to many of its sites this weekend.

Valley Forge National Park Visitor Center PAIt’s August as the hot and steamy summer rolls on.  The beach, the mountains, the sports, and the summer chores have all been done but now you are looking for something different before the days of camps, sports, and school return in just a few weeks.

Time to take advantage of the FEE FREE National Park Weekend August 14 & 15.

During the year the National Park Service offers 5 separate days or weekends when they eliminate their entrance fees to a variety of National Parks across the country.  This upcoming weekend, August 14 and 15, is one of those times and it looks like it should be an excellent weekend to take advantage of this offer.

Valley Forge PAThe Philadelphia region has 6 National Park sites as well as Hopewell Furnace National Historic site located just across the Chester County – Berks County border in French Creek State Park.  Most of the sites, including the  Independence National Historic Site, the Edgar Allen Poe Home, Glore Dei Church, the Deshler-Morris House, and the Thaddeaus Kosciuszko National Memorial, are normally free although they may require tour reservations.  In addition, both Valley Forge and Hopewell Furnace will have free admission this weekend.

This is a great time to take some time, learn some history, and enjoy more that the area has to offer.  Further afield, there are also many sites is New Jersey, Maryland, and other parts of Pennsylvania offering free admission including Steamtown in Scranton.  Enjoy!
