Did you know that if you have a 4th grader, she/he is entitled to a free park pass that will get you into national parks all over the country? We planned a bunch of trips (some of which are free and we don’t need a pass and some that have paid entrances) when my oldest was in 4th grade.

Here are some of the places we have been:

  • Great Falls (both the MD and the VA sides)
