Document and Explore Georgia’s Great Outdoors in 2022.
Explorers on a mission to visit all Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites have a new way of tracking their travels. A keepsake passport now allows guests to document their journey as they explore from mountains to marshes. Produced by the Friends of Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites, the passport is available for $12.99 in state park gift shops and on FriendsofGaStateParks.org.
The new passport was designed for the most wanderlust. It includes photos and descriptions of 64 state parks and historic sites, from Amicalola Falls to Wormsloe. With each flip of a page, visitors have space to note “My Favorite Thing” and add a sticker to seal their memory. Additional mini-adventures include visiting Big Lakes, Colonial Coast, Fall Foliage, “Gorge”ous Canyons and more.
“Every year we hear from people who have set out on a mission to visit every Georgia state park and state historic site,” said Friends Executive Director Andy Flemming. “Their enthusiasm is inspiring, so we wanted to give them a fun way to record these memories. With more people now working and learning remotely, we think even more visitors will start this quest during 2022.”
Georgia boasts an expansive state park system with a wide variety of recreational and cultural opportunities. Visitors can stay overnight in cabins, campsites or yurts, with the benefit of enjoying hiking, fishing, biking, geocaching, museums, golf and more right outside their door. The Friends of Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the park system.
