Celebrate Spring! This year National Park Week is celebrated April 20th-28th. Park entrance fees will be waived from April 22nd to April 26th.  From National Junior Ranger Day (April 20th) to Volunteer Day (April 27th) there will be something to do at your local park.

So dust off the old back pack and hiking boots and take advantage of National Park Week this April!

For more information and trip planning visit these sites:

When in Pensacola, don’t forget to take time to visit the National Museum of Naval Aviation and the Pensacola lighthouse. Both are located on the Pensacola Naval Air Station and are FREE! Citizens just need to show proper photo ID at the entrance gate. You will be given a dash pass to display while you are visiting.

Even if you have been there before, the museum has a new addition you should see – Hangar Bay One.

Be prepared to spend several hours at the museum complex. There are two floors of exhibits, Hangar Bay One, as well as other attractions (IMAX theater and FREE trolley tour). The museum also has a restaurant, gift shop and library/gallery to enjoy.

And again, don’t forget to visit the haunted lighthouse while you’re there! ;)
