vthistory.jpg What to do, what to do for Father's Day this weekend...hmm...I bet something outdoors, like kayaking, fishing, hiking, or even something historical [I know my husband isn't the only man who can watch the History Channel into the wee hours every night] would be right up the old man's alley. Hey, even better, I bet all the above when offered FREE would really make his day special. Solution found. June 14-15 marks the statewide celebration of Vermont Days.

The Green Mountain state wants to draw you in and keep you coming back with the offer of statewide opportunities to hike, paddle, climb, fish, or just relax in any of its state parks...for FREE. Yup, admission is spared, parking too, just come and enjoy its beauty. And because history is everything, visitors can learn about historic contributions by Vermonters at any state-owned historic site [yes, there are many!].

Saturday June 14 is the state's Free Fishing Day, when the whole family can fish without a license, or even learn how to fish at many of the state's free clinics. Find Vermont Day details at Vermont State Parks or Vermont Historic Sites and plan your trip for this weekend.
