Veterans Day is on Monday, November 11th and to celebrate those who served the U.S., the National Park Service is waiving entrance fees to all its sites. This is the time to get out there and take in the country’s fresh air.

Even though most parks are actually already free, this promotion saves travelers money on major bucket list destinations such as the Grand Canyon or California’s Yosemite (which do charge people to enter). In total, there are 419 different sites you can visit and there’s at least one in every state.

To figure out where you want to go or find the park nearest you, check out the park service’s website. Considering it’s a long weekend, why not disconnect and take a spontaneous family or friends trip to nature’s finest?

It may be last minute, but there are plenty of travel hacking sites that can help get you extremely discounted hotel rates. In fact, it’s reportedly often cheaper to snag accommodations later as hotels are simply trying to sell their unused rooms.

In case this weekend doesn’t work or you’d rather plan in advance, know that the park service has four other free-entrance days. Parks will let you walk right in during Martin Luther King Jr. day, the first day of National Park Week, the National Park Service’s birthday and National Public Lands Day. Go ahead and mark those calendars.
