Take a hike

The sun is shining. The birds are singing. Spring has finally sprung. And, although everything is covered in a yellow film, it’s still time to get outdoors.

In my continuing efforts to bring you the fun for free (or relatively cheap), I’m pushing you Atlantans to get outside. The National Park Service is waiving entrance fees to all 392 national parks April 17 (this Saturday) through April 25. This gives everyone a chance to explore not only the state of Georgia but the entire country…if you can afford the gas.

In addition to the free admission, there will be plenty of volunteer opportunities and Earth Day festivities on April 22. And, on Saturday, April 24, the parks will be having Junior Ranger Day with lots of extra activities for the kiddies.

So, fill up the picnic basket, grab a blanket and see what you can find in the great outdoors.
