Redwoods Friday

Complimentary Entry to California State Parks with Redwoods

How’s this for a post-Thanksgiving plan: on Black Friday, you’ll be seeing red … as in magnificent redwoods! Yep, the day after Thanksgiving you can enjoy free day-use admission to some of California’s redwood state parks because Save the Redwoods League and California State Parks are giving away day-use passes.

The caveat: it’s a first-come, first-served basis according to each park’s capacity (just one pass is needed per park, per vehicle). The silver lining: while many parks are already booked up (read, sold out!), some of Northern California’s very best and less traveled state parks still have availability, and the redwoods are wondrous!
