3 Family Friendly Hikes in Flagler Beach

Now that summer has official arrived, kids and parents alike are taking advantage of some vacation time and Ecotourism is booming (participating in activities that don’t harm the ecosystem). Visiting national parks are a great way to get out of the house. Gamble Rogers is conducting three different types of hikes that are family friendly and economically inviting, going on in June! 

Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area at Flagler Beach is known for great site seeing photographs! Be sure to remember your camera and share your pictures with us! See you there!
