Think you can’t afford a vacation this year? This is one of my top ten ideas for fun and relaxation close to home.
Discover your State Parks and Recreation Areas.
In my state an annual $25 park permit gets everyone in your vehicle into the state parks. We have a wonderful variety of state parks including parks that cater to campers, fishing enthusiasts, nature lovers, hikers, history and archeology buffs, and even vacationers who want a few amenities.
One of our favorite brief escapes is a hike followed by dinner with a view at the picnic area in a State Park.
Get acquainted with your state parks. You may be missing wonderful recreational opportunities.
