Quick story: This past summer I reserved a campsite for my husband and I online via the Minnesota DNR website. Because I did that I got signed up to receive emails from the DNR with announcements and cool events going on. One of those cool events is Free Park Friday!

Coming up the day after Thanksgiving this year, aka Black Friday, you can get into all Minnesota state parks and recreation areas for free. I've Googled for this information so I can add a link for you to check out this information yourself but it's not popping up anywhere! So to prove to you that this Free Park Friday is really happening I'll provide a screenshot of the email.

So instead of fighting all of the crazy crowds on Black Friday, take some time to enjoy the peaceful outdoors! You could even make it a family outing if you have family in town for Thanksgiving.

Hang out with Carly Ross on The Mighty 920 KDHL weekdays 1-5pm!
