Happy #ADPFF, all!
Earlier this week, before the government reopened for business, some states decided to do a pretty cool thing and open their national parks on their own dime.
It started with three major national landmarks–the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, and the Statue of Liberty. (Want to know how much a date at one of these places costs? Hint: more than dinner and a movie. Find out here.) But they weren’t the only ones. To read more on which states followed suit and why (and where tourism is big for the economy), check out this article in The Atlantic.
Make it a great weekend, and be sure to enjoy a national park or museum–they’re worth it.
