Myth #1 About State Parks–They’re Boring

Friday, July 9th, 2010

This is Passport to Texas

Our state park guide, Bryan Frazier, says when it comes to our parks and the outdoors, we can hold a slew of unwarranted beliefs. One of the biggies out there is that state parks are boring—that they’re places where only retired people in RV’s go for the winter.

That is a very real stereotype out there, and we want to address that in the fact that it is completely NOT the case.

I would encourage people to think back of when’s the last time they took their family on a camping trip. On a fishing trip, or went canoeing, or kayaking, or even just went on a picnic with their girlfriend, or boyfriend, or significant other.

I think they’ll realize just how profound the memories can be and the things that happen that you don’t expect to happen.

Those are sometimes the most fun of all: the wildlife that you see, the experiences…if that’s what people really think…give it a second chance…and I think they’ll come to realize and remember just how enjoyable and exciting state parks can be.

Thanks, Bryan.
