One more free weekend at the National Parks: Aug. 15 & 16, 2009

Last chance! The National Park Service is hosting one more free weekend this summer. You can go see any of America’s National Parks during this weekend without paying an admission charge.

If you can’t make it next weekend, the good news is that two of Cochise County‘s three national parks are free year-round!

Admission to Coronado National Memorial and Fort Bowie National Historic Site is free.  And Chiricahua National Monument is rock bottom at just $5 per person.

So think about southern Arizona if you’re looking for a travel getaway. As documentary filmmaker, Ken Burns, put it, the National Parks are one of “America’s Best Ideas.”
