Become a Tourist in Your Own Hometown
Posted on 06/20/2011
Sometimes it’s just good to get away from it all. But it doesn’t mean that you have to cross borders, hop on a plane or sail any seas. Hitting the road in your own hometown can be refreshing enough and let you get away without spending a fortune.
There’s bound to be several places in your town that you’ve been meaning to venture to; be it country roads, historic neighborhoods, unique museums, tourist attractions or local restaurants.
Taking a local road trip is something you can do by yourself, with a group of friends or with your family. If you’re looking for a therapeutic trip, hitting the road by yourself may be the way to go. Roll down your windows and cruise.
If you’re looking for more of an adventure, get a group of friends together and decide on some destinations. Make it even more adventurous by splitting into groups and create a scavenger hunt. This way you can explore more of the town while making it somewhat of a competition. Just make sure a third party sets the course to ensure no one knows the route.
You can also hike or bike for additional fun. Or, maybe you can visit a nearby campsite and spend a few nights.
Whatever you decide, make sure you’re the ultimate tourist. Take your camera. You never know when the perfect photo opportunity will arise. Bon voyage!
