Summer vacation season is coming up. Frugal people already know that visiting family or friends not too far away is the least expensive going-somewhere vacation. Next up is simple travel with low-cost lodging and inexpensive or free activities.
For day visits, more than half of National Parks in the U.S. don’t charge an admission fee. Those that do charge have free days. Some have bicycles or canoes for rent and some have interesting guided walks. Anyone sixty-two or older can get a Golden Age Passport from the National Park Service, for free entrance to any site run by the NPS.
