America is home to some pretty amazing national parks, and from April 16 to 24 they’re all free to enter.
Though not all national parks normally charge entrance fees, most of the best ones — the Grand Canyon, Zion, etc. — do. And since all the parks are free, it makes sense to cram in as many as you can in a short amount of time. That means trying to visit several parks that are close together.
My suggestion is to hit up the southern Utah–northern Arizona region, which would let you visit Arches, Zion, the Grand Canyon, Canyonlands, Bryce, and a bunch of smaller sites. Truth be told, a week isn’t enough to visit everything in that area, but since things are relatively close together that trip would allow you to maximize your time.
