Ga. national parks see 7 million visitors in 2013

By The Associated Press
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 /> <br /> A National Park Service report says visitor spending supported nearly 5,100 jobs in Georgia in 2013. <br /> <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 /> <br /> National Park Service officials say visitor numbers are lower than 2012, partially because of the 16-day federal government shutdown in October.
