Florida Park Service launches new 'passport,' offers prizes
ORLANDO, Fla. – The Florida Park Service announced in early April that it's launching a new way to document park visits, resulting in potential prizes for frequent visitors.
The Deluxe Real Florida Passport is a journal that park visitors use to collect stamps from the state's 175 parks. The booklet also includes a fold-out map and information about each park.
Those who collect stamps from every state park will then be eligible for an annual family pass.
The passport costs $17.99 online, but state officials are offering a free copy of a special edition to the first 250 people who take an online survey.
