Weekend Planner: Mayweather Fight, Free Park Entry, & More

In less than a month, summer will officially be over in South Florida. Although the region enjoys constant sunshine for most of the year, residents and tourists can live out the last days of summer with fun weekend activities in Broward and Miami-Dade. There’s also some indoor options just in case the weather is rainy.

Free Admission to South Florida National Parks

August 25 is the National Park Service’s birthday, which means free admission to all 392 U.S. national parks.

There are, of course, other national parks in South Florida, like Biscayne National Park, which require no entrance fee. For more information, click here.
