Florida State Parks Visits



We bought a Florida State Parks Annual Family Pass on 1/15/17.  Even though we obtained the 25% off military discount, I want to track all our visits here so when it's time to renew, we can determine if it truly was worth buying it or not... Plus, it'll be fun to see all the parks that we visited at a glance!  We paid $90 plus tax for the pass.  Update: we used it at least 20 times and would have had to pay at least $109 separately by 12/31/17 so our Jan-Feb 2018 visits were "free" and it was worth it and we did renew it in March 2018 since our initial pass expired at the end of February 2018.
