Exploring the origins and meanings of some of the world’s most famous symbols

Since the beginning of human civilization, symbols have played a vital role. These cultures used symbols as a way to express themselves in various ways. The prehistoric man carved his life experiences on cave walls, not expecting we'd still be talking about them today. Indeed, to this day, we still use many of the symbols inherited from the past. Be it in religion, political ideology, or art, we still come across many of these symbols in our day to day, often without knowing their true meanings and origins. To learn more about the world's most common symbols, check out the following gallery.


13 Amusement Parks in the U.S. That Are Completely Free to Enter

A few even charge you nothing for parking and entertainment. Amusement parks are synonymous with so many wonderful things: fun in the sun, rollercoasters and carousels, games galore and delicious food. And all in a colorful, jubilant, family-friendly setting. The only issue? Joy like that does not typically come cheap. Or can it? Well, at these 13 amusement parks across the U.S., from the Golden to the Garden States, you can save on one very important front: entry. While the vast majority of amusement parks — including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Busch Gardens — require tickets just to walk through the gates, these resorts and parks do not. Of course, if you want to ride the rides or snack on the snacks, you'll still have to open your wallet. (A good thing can only go so far!) But if you're someone who's more about the vibes than the rides, this is the list for you. Make sure you scroll to the bottom: There's one very famous park that's about to go "open gate" with its water parks for guests staying on property. (Hint: It's home to a special mouse!)
