Low Cost Weekend Ideas: Visit a National Historic Park

Email  Print Print  

Check out the website of the National Park Service and you’ll be amazed at the sheer number of National Historic Parks, Trails and Monuments under the watchful eye of the U.S. Department of the Interior. They have a handy park search page where you can enter your ZIP code and find all the parks nearby. For example, I found that twenty four miles away from me is the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail, a “National Scenic Trail,” that is absolutely free. Sometimes you have to pay for parking but otherwise the various parks, trails, and such are usually free to the public.

Sticklers out there will say that your taxes pay for the National Historic Parks (they’re right) but visiting a park usually costs no money out of your pocket. So, unless this weekend is dreary like it is around the Baltimore/D.C. area, give the site a look maybe take a little two hour hike this weekend to get the heart pumping and the blood flowing.

    Top Post! I love those ideas of low cost weekends and low cost fun things to do. It makes me smile at those people who think you have to spend a fortune to have a good time.

    Any ideas on how to save money while ON holiday would be greatly appreciated, I struggle :o/

    Love those No Money Fun ideas. They usually turn out to be more fun than things you spend big money on, IMO.
