ATLANTA (AP) National Park Service officials say more than 7 million people visited Georgia parks in 2013 and had an economic benefit of about $348 million. <br />
A National Park Service report says visitor spending supported nearly 5,100 jobs in Georgia in 2013. <br />
Georgia's national park sites include the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park and more. <br />
National Park Service officials say visitor numbers are lower than 2012, partially because of the 16-day federal government shutdown in October.
A couple of days after an outright win in the general primary in which he avoided a runoff by a wide margin, U.S. Representative Doug Collins, R-Gainesville, said he was glad the week was drawing to a close.
