What could be more Canadian than celebrating Canada Day at one of Canada's many National Parks?

I simply cannot think of a more Canadian thing... unless you added eating poutine on a canoe while listening to Shania Twain. Now that's a seriously Canadian image... you're welcome.

I digress - it turns out that Parks Canada agrees with me, so they've made admission free at several Canadian National Parks and Historic Sites for this year's Canada Day.

So if you don't have plans for this July 1st, 2019, consider one of the beautiful sites listed below and save yourself the cost of admission cause Parks Canada evidently loves Canadians... and we love them, too.

Also, as of January 1st, 2018, admission to Parks Canada places is free for all youth under 17, so all you youths out there should take advantage of this sweet deal.

While we're a good couple months away from Canad Day, a lot og these places are necessarily next door, (unless you live in Halifax, in which case the Citadel is essentially your backyard). 

So hopefully this article has inspired you to consider your Canada Day plans, and maybe make one of our beautiful National Parks part of the party!
