In their new book, The 10 Best Of Everything.”, National Geographic declares 10 of the hundreds of U.S. National Parks as the best. Read the Huffington Post article here. The Grand Canyon, Yosemite, as you might expect, is in the top 10.

There was, for me, some unexpected listings.  Like Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii; New Orleans Jazz Historical Park, Louisiana.

Whether you take National Geographic’s picks or compile your own, the U.S. Parks are a great value. And, I don’t think you can overuse the word “majestic” when referring to most of them.  

Read 100+ Places to Park Free in the U.S. to get details on the bargains and workings of the parks.  This article details all the Entrance Free days, what “free” means, and details on many of the parks.

 

As a reminder:

Free entrance to over 100 National Parks and Historical Landmarks. See detailed coverage in Free U.S. Parking in September 2011.

June 9, 2011 is the next free entrance day for hundreds of U.S. Parks. Including National Geographic’s Top 10

These treasures belong to you, America, so go out and enjoy them. And, if you can make it on June 9, get in free.  If you can’t, no worries.  The National Park Service is still a bargain, especially if you check out the passes.  Senior citizens you can get a pass for life!
