The concept of national parks dates back to the mid-19th century when people started realizing the importance of preserving scenic areas and natural resources. The United States paved the way with the establishment of Yellowstone National Park in 1872, becoming the world's first national park.
Over time, more national parks were established, each with its own unique features and charm. These protected areas not only provide an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life but also play a crucial role in preserving biodiversity and natural ecosystems.

While free admission is undoubtedly fantastic, it's essential to plan your visit ahead to make the most of this day. Check out the websites or social media pages of the national parks you intend to visit for information on hiking trails, camping spots, and any special events taking place.
Remember to pack all the necessary essentials like sunscreen, water bottles, snacks, and appropriate clothing and gear for your chosen activities. Oh, and don't forget the camera – you'll definitely want to capture those incredible moments!
