Free National Park Day

There are over 400 National Parks throughout the United States that are open to the public almost all year-round. On select days throughout the year, guests are able to enter the parks without paying the normal fee. April 21, the beginning of National Parks Week, is one of those days where all of the parks will be open for free. In the Bay Area, there are two parks participating in the event. The first, the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, is about half an hour from the Alpine Inn & Suites. It offers visitors the opportunity to experience the maritime history of the Pacific Coast with a fleet of historic ships, a Visitor Center, a Maritime Research Center, an Aquatic Park Historic District, and a Maritime Museum. The second, Muir Woods National Monument, is a bit further away, about 50 minutes, but the beauty of the park is well worth the trip. While there, you can walk among the redwoods that have been federally protected since 1908 and soak in the majestic beauty of these gigantic and ancient towering trees.
