Looking for something interesting to do to commemorate this weekend's Veteran's Day holiday?  The National Park Service is offering free fees at 398 national park sites across the U.S. this weekend to honor all of those that serve and have served in the United States military.


From frontier forts to Civil War battlefields, there are more than 70 sites within the national park system that have a direct connection to military personnel or battles. In addition to the free fees, national parks throughout the country will hold special events to mark the Veterans Day holiday. Here are a few events to mark on your calendar:

 


Additional benefits for veterans on Veterans Day include a free Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area cruise that will pass the USS Constitution on its way to Georges Island, home of Fort Warren.  And you can also get free entrance to the Gettysburg National Military Park museum

The Veterans Day weekend is the last of the National Park Service entrance fee free days for 2012.
