Wright Brothers National Memorial will be joining national park sites across the country in celebrating the Presidents' Day holiday by waiving admission fees Saturday through Monday, February 15, 16, and 17, 2014.

Presidents' Day is a federal holiday that has its origins beginning in 1885. Originally the holiday was intended to celebrate the birthday of our nation's first president George Washington. This holiday has evolved over time into a celebration of all presidents contributing to our nation's great history. There's no better way to celebrate these presidents' achievements than to visit your nearest National Park site free of charge.

Winter is an excellent time to visit the National Parks on the Outer Banks. Before the summer season crowds return take the opportunity for unobstructed enjoyment of the area's natural and cultural heritage. Bring your family and friends to Wright Brothers National Memorial to learn more about this great nation's aviation history or enjoy a stroll to the Monument on the hill.Explore fishing and beachcombing on the winter beaches of Cape Hatteras National Seashore, and visit the quiet woodlands of the first English settlement at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site.

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