Get Outside
New England's State Parks

You probably would never think to gift the outdoors for the holidays - it seems like something that might be a bit far-fetched but honestly, it's the best gift anyone could receive. Spend a day in the outdoors, and that day is instantly made better. As Muir said, “keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”

Give the gift of the outdoors and your loved one will thank you for years to come.

 
 
 

From the Mountains to the Sea

One of the most amazing things about New England is that you can be up in the mountains and back at the sea all in the same day. New England is just small enough that it can be explored, but also just big enough that you feel you're the only one out exploring. Visit Mount Greylock State Reservation, Massachusetts's first state park, and enjoy sweeping views that can stretch for states. Maine is famously home to Mount Katahdin, the highest peak in the state and the heart of a 204,700-acre preserve. Colt State Park in Rhode Island offers sweeping views of Narragansett Bay, a fishing pier, walking trails and shaded picnic areas for the day trip enthusiast. The entire region is filled with State Park gems just begging to be explored.

 


Gifting the Outdoors

Each of New England's states offer a variety of passes for differing durations of time or even for residents and non-residents. Visit each site for more information on the best gift for your loved one, and get out there and explore in 2016!
