Visit a National Park this week
In case you didn't know, it's National Park Week April 17-25. Visit any national park and get in free! Many parks are holding special events and volunteer projects on Thurday, April 22, which is Earth Day. Check out a national park near you or go to www.nps.gov/npweek for more information.
Some people wonder “What is the meaning of life?” I, on the other hand, wonder where my next trip will take me. Welcome to my site, Getaway Girl Travels. I am a travel writer based in Tampa, Florida, but you won't see any guides to theme parks here. I do adventure travel "light": skiing, biking, hiking, rafting, kayaking and exploring the great outdoors.
My travels have taken me from cruising the Yangtze River in China to skiing and biking in Switzerland and kayaking in the Everglades. I love living here in the Sunshine State, so exploring Florida is always a great getaway!
My travel stories have been published on VisitSouth.com, Tampa Bay Times, Tampa Tribune, Miami Herald, and Allegiant Airlines Sunseeker.
