Some U.S. Tourist Sites to Reopen

Get out those fanny packs. The Grand Canyon, the Statue of Liberty and other national tourist attractions will reopen this week after the government shutdown shuttered them starting October 1. Arizona and New York have worked out deals for the state to fund the Grand Canyon (at a cost of $100,000 per day) and the Statue of Liberty (estimated cost of $60,000 a day), while South Dakota will use corporate donors to reopen Mount Rushmore on Monday. Utah and Colorado also hammered out deals to reopen their national sites.
