Rocky Mountain National Park offers free admission for National Park week

ESTES PARK, Colo. - There’s no better place to be a tourist in your own home state than Colorado!

The National Park Service turns 100 years old this year, and it’s celebrating by waiving admission fees for more than 400 national parks from April 16 to April 24.

Colorado has four National Parks which will all be free next week.

Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the most popular in the nation with more than 400 beautiful square miles filled with trails, wildflowers, wildlife and gorgeous mountain views.

Since my family and I are new to Colorado we are taking every opportunity to explore our gorgeous and exciting new home. 

One of the first places we visited was Rocky Mountain National Park.

We were blown away by the magnitude and majesty of the park.

The National Park Service hopes the free admission week will allow more people to experience what all the national parks have to offer and inspire the explorer in each of us.

Rocky Mountain National Park’s admission is typically $20 for a single-day automobile pass.

Check out my family’s visit to Rocky Mountain National Park in this YouTube video.

We're documenting our entire move to our new home in Colorado with our videos called The Rockie Peaches
