State parks are free on Sunday for Veterans Day

Thank a veteran for a day in the park Sunday. In honor of Veterans Day, entry will be free to everyone at Florida's state parks on Sunday (the lone exception is the Skyway Fishing Pier State Park). "We encourage Florida's citizens and visitors to enjoy our state's natural and cultural resources while honoring our dedicated service men and women," said Florida Park Service director Donald V. Forgione. State parks in the Tampa Bay area include Alafia River State Park in Lithia, Honeymoon Island State Park in Dunedin and the Hillsborough River State Park in Thonotosassa.
