Free Entertainment – Georgia State Parks

I had a great day today. I drove over to a local Georgia state park and spent the morning day-hiking. The park usually charges $3 for parking, but on Wednesdays, you can park for free. So, I grabbed my bottle of water and hit the trails. (To read about my day and to see pictures, visit No. Calories Needed and read about my day at George L. Smith Georgia State Park.)

If you are looking for an inexpensive (or free) form of entertainment, consider a state park. Before you go, remember to pack some bug spray (I forgot) and plenty of healthy snacks. I had forgotten how awesome out park system is – and I was amazed that I was the only visitor. (As I was leaving, I did notice a couple of guys fishing, but I’m not sure if they were visitors or employees.) I think I’m going to do a mini-tour of the state parks in our area – and see which ones I like the best.

As for the lost wallet – I have a new driver’s license and, so far, I haven’t noticed any irregular account activity. If you are unfamiliar, I lost my wallet this past weekend – and my social security card was in the wallet! So, as a word of caution, please remember to take your social security card out of your wallet! Go!

  2. Sounds like you had a great time! I live in Vidalia and work in Reidsville. Let me know when you go to Gordonia-Alatamaha State Park; Maybe I’ll see ya there. I’ve been reading your blog for a little while now and would like to meet ya.

  3. I’ve never been to George L. Smith, but Amicolola Falls State Park in Dahlonega is one of my favorites. Especially when combined with a meal at The Smith House and outlet shopping!
