Veterans Day may be best spent outdoors because national parks and forests offer free admission Thursday and state parks are marking the day with some special events. National parks will waive admission fees Thursday in honor of Veterans Day. In addition, some will have special ceremonies. For example, Valley Forge National Historic Park in Pennsylvania will have a moment of silence and wreath-laying ceremony in tribute to Revolutionary War veterans. Go to the National Park Service website to find out more.

Laszlo has been camping at prime beachfront sites such as Leo Carrillo State Park north of Santa Monica since he first came to the United States as a student more than 30 years ago.
