It’s a free-admission weekend at state and national parks!

In honor of Veteran’s Day, the Florida State Park system is waiving admission fees at all of it’s parks on Sunday (Nov. 11)!

The National Park System will be waiving it’s fees on Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 10, 11), and the U.S. Forest Service is waiving its fees for the entire three-day weekend (Nov. 10-12).

True, the fees at these parks typically aren’t substantial, but this is a great chance to get out and do some park hopping with the whole family.

So this weekend, instead of hiking the usual trails, explore somewhere new.  And if you see a veteran, say thanks.

(Before you head out, though, vote for “Walking with Wild Horses” at the Florida State Park Photo Contest)
