So you want to get out of the house and start experiencing the great outdoors. Great! But how do you start?
It's actually pretty easy to find a state or national park near your house. Many are located within a 30 minute drive of town, and some are even nestled in more urban areas.
For national parks, visit the National Parks Service website. For state parks, visit your state's tourism site for more information.
Many parks have either minimal or no fees to enter, so this is a healthy and cheap activity!
