State/National Parks

Summertime is right around the corner. Travel and family vacations are a part of summertime. With the cost of gas, vacations are more expensive than ever.

A few years ago we decided to spend our vacation visiting as many State and National Parks in our state as possible. It turned out to be one of our most memorable vacations ever.

Since that vacation, we make it a point to visit state/national parks everywhere we go. For example, when my husband and I went on a business trip to San Diego we visited
Torrey Pines, Old Town San Diego, Border Field, Cabrillo National Monument, and Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery.

On our way home this week from our trip we stopped in Georgia at Andersonville National Historic Site. The best part was my children got to locate where their grandfather is buried and visit his gravesite.
To check your area for State Parks in your area or an area you may be traveling to visit State parks of the United States. To find National Parks visit The national Park Service.

Many state parks offer camping and/or cabins for overnight stays at a very low cost. Be sure to plan early and make reservations.
