Trunk Bay Free on July 4th

July 2, 2008 — You can follow up St. John's July 4th Celebration parade with a swim at Trunk Bay, and it won't cost you a dime.
V.I. National Park Superintendent Mark Hardgrove announced Wednesday that Friday, July 4, is a fee-free day in observance of the holiday.
"This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy our national treasures free of charge," Hardgrove said in a news release issued Wednesday.
The adult admission fee usually runs $4, with children under 16 always admitted free. Golden Age and Golden Access pass holders pay half price.
Additionally, an individual annual pass runs $10. Families pay $15 for the annual pass.
Hardgrove suggested that visitors take a safari taxi to the beach to avoid overcrowding in the normally congested Trunk Bay parking lot.
In addition to the beach, Trunk Bay is also home to an underwater snorkeling trail.
The beach has bathrooms, showers and a snack bar.
