This week (April 17th-25th) is National Park Week. The cool thing about National Park Week is that entrance to all 392 national parks in the United States is FREE! So now is a great time to take that day trip or weekend trip that you've been putting off.
If you are lucky enough to live near the Grand Canyon like me, it's the perfect time to visit. The weather is gorgeous, the Canyon is breathtaking, and it's free!
