In honor of Veterans Day, US national parks are waiving entry fees November 10-12. That's right: visiting any national park is free, including in Hawaii. If you're headed to Haleakala National Park on Maui or Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island, you won't pay a cent. Go hike the otherworldly craters of the Big Island's Kilauea Iki Trail inside an active volcanic zone, or traipse through musical bamboo groves up to Waimoku Falls on the Pipiwai Trail beyond Hana on Maui. You'll save $10 per carload all weekend long.
