Unpack a Summer Picnic at Patapsco Valley State Park
When you’re trying to decide upon something to do this springtime, there’s no reason you need to spend a lot of money. Of course, you could make room in your budget for a visit to a costly amusement park or a weekend at a hotel room on the beach. Or, you can save your funds for something special and opt for a budget-friendly activity, like a visit to Patapsco Valley State Park. Bring your rod and sit back waiting for a bite. Stop by on a particularly hot day, slip off your shoes, and wade into the water to cool yourself off. Or, simply come to enjoy the trail and get a hike in. Birdwatching? Sure. Photo opps? Aplenty.
Perhaps best of all, though, you can enjoy all of the above for just a $2 entry fee. From the area’s natural beauty to its man-made features, like the suspension and swinging bridges, a visit to Patapsco State Park, and its Avalon area, in particular, will offer an affordable alternative to your favorite warm-weather activities—with options to keep you entertained for many visits still to come. With each visit, you might find that you love this park a little bit more.
