National Park Service Turns 100 Years

Mt Rainier National Park

Looking for something to do this weekend?  How about a drive to your local national park. Mount Rainier is approximately 2 hours drive from Seattle.  The National Park Service turns 100 years old in 2016  and  everyone can join the party!  On 16 days this year, all National Park Service sites that charge an entrance fee will offer free admission to everyone.  Discover the beautiful parks and sites with your family and friends.  Jesse Tam, blog.

Mark your calendar for these entrance fee–free dates in 2016:

  • January 18: Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • April 16 through 24: National Park Week
  • August 25 through 28: National Park Service Birthday
  • September 24: National Public Lands Day
  • November 11: Veterans Day

It’s not too early to make plans for the summer campsites and make reservations to enjoy the trails and parks. Discover the wildflowers, waterfalls, old growth trees, rain forest, wild life and nature.  Remember to bring your camera for the sunset or sunrise photos.  Mount Rainier National Park near Seattle is a beautiful place year round to visit for snow shoeing and spring flowers.
