With airlines still canceling flights by the thousands, you may want to look at road trips for your 2022 travel plans. National Parks make a great destination and we’ve got several right here, in California! NPS just released the 2022 dates for free admission to National Parks, so let the planning begin!

• Monday, January 17:  Martin Luther King Jr. Day
• Saturday, April 16: First day of  National Park Week
• Thursday, August 4: Anniversary of the Great American Outdoors Act
• Saturday, September 24:  National Public Lands Day
• Friday, November 11: Veterans Day

The National Park Service encourages everyone to to plan early, arrive early and check online for potential timed entries on the free days, especially at the most popular parks.

The entrance fee waiver won’t cover fees for activities such as camping, boat launches, transportation or special tours.
