4 National Parks In Mississippi That You Can Visit For Free
In an effort to help the general public combat cabin fever, the National Park Service is waiving entrance fees to all national parks until further notice. With no fees, the parks offer an affordable option for getting out of the house. We have several national parks in Mississippi, four of which are currently open (with some minor adjustments to follow CDC guidelines). You can even tour a few of them without getting out of your car. Read on for all the details.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Since things are pretty unpredictable right now, it’s a good idea to check the National Park Service website prior to visiting. And remember to adhere to social distancing while at the parks.
So, do you think you’ll visit any of the parks? How else are you staying busy? Tell us in the comments section.
