Probably the ultimate Earth Day freebie (see
for more Earth Day deals) is the ability to freely enjoy our country's beauty.
During National Parks Week (Apr. 22 - 26) entrance fees are waived for everyone at America's national parks.
In Florida that means you can get in for free at Everglades National Park, Dry Tortugas, Canaveral National Seashore, Castillo de San Marcos National Monument and Gulf Islands National Seashore.

Fee waiver includes entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. Other fees such as reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not included unless stated otherwise.
