Wright Brothers National Memorial will be joining national park sites across the country in celebrating National Park Week by waiving admission fees April 16-24, 2016.

It’s about making great connections, exploring amazing places, discovering open spaces, enjoying affordable vacations and enhancing America’s best idea — the national parks! Outer Banks Group Superintendent David Hallac stated, “There’s no better way to celebrate National Park Week than to invite visitors to come visit and discover something new in your nearest National Park sites free of charge!” Outer Banks Group staff manage Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, and the Wright Brothers National Memorial.

Bring your family and friends to Wright Brothers National Memorial, the site of the first powered flight, and learn more about this great nation’s aviation history. Enjoy exploring the spring beaches of the nation’s first national seashore, Cape Hatteras National Seashore, and visit the wooded site of the first English settlement at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, located at the north end of Roanoke Island.

Mild weather and plentiful sunshine makes spring an excellent season to visit the national park sites on the Outer Banks.

Entrance fees are not charged at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site or Cape Hatteras National Seashore.
