Recharge After Memorial Day

We all love long weekends but sometimes you need a little break after all that barbecue. Make the most of your Friends membership and take a little time for yourself by visiting your local state park or historic site. Wandering a park alone can be good for your mental and physical health. Worried you'll get bored? Download and print The Solo Adventurer's Guide to help you on your adventure.

Check out the full list of state parks and historic sites here.

Once you've picked your state park, you can download and print The Solo Adventurer's Guide to take with you. Parks are great with friends and family but there's plenty to do on your own! Head to your state park or historic site, and don't forget your Friends Membership. Wander the beautiful trails or museums and enjoy your own company! Check out the beautiful sights and listen to the music of the outdoors. If you're at a historic site, read all the signs and take notes. Learn something new. If you're a creative, bring your sketchpad or journal! Make sure to share your adventure with us and your friends on social media. 

To continue making these parks possible, consider donating to Friends here. Thanks for supporting your state park!
