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!)

15 statues removed for the history they represent

Monuments have often been removed or toppled from their locations as a symbolic protest against the values they embody.In fact, taking down statues has been part of a wider effort to reject certain historical symbols. It has also raised questions about which figures deserve to be honoured and how collective memory should be expressed.The Black Lives Matter movement, for instance, gave rise to a campaign to get rid of statues of figures symbolizing racism, especially after the 2020 murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. This has not been, however, the only time monuments have been removed or vandalized to condemn the historical events to which they are linked.
