Lake Mead officials are marking the 98th birthday of the National Park Service next week by letting visitors in for free.
Guests can enter the Lake Mead National Recreation Area on Monday without paying the usual $10 entry fee, officials announced today. Select items at the gift store will also be discounted by 15 percent.
If that's not enough to entice you, officials say birthday cake will be available at the visitor center starting at 1 p.m.
