A Deal You Don't Want to Miss

Cameron Huddleston

Looking for something fun to do this weekend? How about something that's fun and FREE?  If you live near any of the nation's 391 national parks, hop in the car and head over because you won't have to pay to get in this weekend.

The National Park Service is waiving the entrance fee August 15 and 16 at the 100 parks that usually charge a fee -- the third time it's done so this summer to give people a chance to visit the parks in these economically tough times. Many of the parks' concession operators also are offering discounts and deals this weekend. Some parks are even waiving camping and other fees.
