Fee-Free Weekends in Your National Parks

America’s Best Idea – the national parks – gets even better this summer with three fee-free weekends at more than 100 national parks that usually charge entrance fees*.

Mark your calendars for fee-free weekends this summer:

June 20-21, 2009 (Father’s Day weekend)
July 18-19, 2009
August 15-16, 2009

And to make the fun even more affordable, many national park concessioners are joining the National Park Service in welcoming visitors on this summer’s fee free weekends with the their own special offers.

Here’s a tip – many national parks never charge an entrance fee, so you can plan inexpensive visits year round!

For a list of family fun activities this summer, visit National Parks: The Place to Be for Family Fun.
*Fee waiver includes: entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. Other fees such as reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not included unless stated otherwise.

Shopping Frugal: Instant Cash Sweepstakes
I just joined Instant Cash sweepstakes! I checked this site out and it's completely spam free. It's fun, too. You can answer five, three question surveys every 3 hours. After each survey you'll either win "lottery tickets" for their Grand Prize drawings, or cash! They pay by Paypal only (so make sure you have an account 1st) and you can cash out when you hit $2 and must cash out when you hit $100. If you want to play, check out my right side bar, about 1/2 way down.

Do you like to play Instant Win Games? Check out this link for your chance to win at (5) five different games. I don't usually play, because I think that I don't have time, but today I am goig to do all of them. I'll post if I win; if you win, I want you to post! :)

This freebie is available for the US only.
