Be less bugged

We're not saying there won't be any bugs...but here are some places to go where you're less likely to need that bug spray! These particular parks tend to have fewer biting insects because of their geologic and meteorologic conditions.

Learn how to be less attractive to bugs:

  • Dress in bright colors
  • Wear a hat
  • Avoid wearing perfume or strongly scented products
  • Keep cool (sweat attracts bugs!)
