3 Unique Ways To Make The Most Of Your National Parks Pass
The hefty $80 price tag on a National Parks Pass can make you question whether or not you actually need one but depending on how you use it, getting a parks pass can end up saving you a ton. Traditionally, most people get value from their parks pass by visiting at least 3 parks in the year. While an annual pass will save you money on entrance fees to national parks and forests it can also save you money in other ways as well. Here are just a few things you can do to maximize your National Parks Pass savings.
Camping in Bureau of Land Management (BLM) or National Forest land? Chances are your campsite offers a discount to annual pass holders! Get up to half off on campsites all across the country. The discount amount varies but is often available and worth checking out to save yourself a little extra cash.
National Historic Sites:
National parks passes aren't just for getting out in nature! You can use your national parks pass for admission into national historic sites like the Vanderbilt Mansion, the home of Benjamin Franklin, and the Golden Spike Museum.
Planning a trip to the US Virgin Islands? Puerto Rico? You're in luck! National Parks Passes also work at historic sites and parks in US territories. The famous forts of Old San Juan happen to be a national historic site, meaning that you can use your national parks pass for free entrance into one of San Juan's biggest attractions.
