The Florida Park Service is proud to observe Veterans Day by offering free entry into any Florida state park* on Wednesday, Nov. 11. We encourage visitors and friends to celebrate this day while honoring veterans and their sacrifices. Spend the day picnicking with family, canoeing or kayaking or walking the nature trails at one of our 174 state parks or trails.
Additionally, veterans are reminded that discounts are available on Annual Entrance Passes for those on active duty or honorably discharged from the U.S. Armed Forces. Free lifetime Military Entrance Passes are available for those veterans who have a service-connected disability. Click here for more information.
You may also purchase items from our shop, which is operated by Veterans4You LLC, a not-for-profit company committed to creating veteran employment opportunities wherever possible and to work the veterans suppliers.
The pictured statue is the Three Soldiers Detail, a bronze replica of the Vietnam Memorial statue in Washington, D.C. It can be seen year-round at Orman House Historic State Park in Apalachicola.
