It’s fall and soon leaves will descend from trees and line the streets with mustard, burnt orange, and brick red colors. We will begin sipping hot cider, tea, and/or hot chocolate. Our homes will become a safe haven and cozy rest from all the summer activities. However, you may still have a sting from the travel bug. So, what should you do?
There is nothing like all the excitement around the hustle and bustle of summer travel. The laughter of children playing, music on blast, the sun beaming, and days that seem to last forever. There are beautiful beaches, thrilling amusement parks, fascinating family trips, but all that can suck the life right out of you. Now, that it is fall you need to rejuvenate and find a place to relax while the children hit the books again. But where?
For the most part traveling is defined in terms of length and movement, and most often associated with planes, trains, and automobiles. However, and brisk walk through a state park discovering waterfalls that you never knew existed could be a wonderful trip. Not to mention, it might be in your own backyard, or at least close enough to be considered your own backyard.
Here are a few things to consider to feed your fall travel bug…
Travel and entertainment often go hand and hand.
- Find a fall concert series
- Snuggle in for a theater production
- Explore a new art exhibits
Lakes, rivers, and trees, means camping
- Look into renting a cabin in a state park
- Pitch a tent and hit the campgrounds
- Go fishing
- Find an apple orchard
- Look up apple festivals
A picture is worth thousand words
- Travel throughout the city, state, or your region taking photos
- Create crafts from your summer trips
- Create a scrapbook
These are just a few things that you can do to satisfy your desire to venture out of your comfort zone. It is that time of the year when movements become slower, days are shorter, and preserving heat is a must. However, you don’t have to pack away your luggage just yet. Day trips or trips within the state are idea when you still have a little more travel within you, but you don’t want to hop a flight and go away.
