Take the Trip out of a Day Trip

Getting away on a day trip is a wonderful, rejuvenating experience, but it’s not always in the cards for everyone. Maybe where you live is kind of remote and there isn’t anywhere to go that’s 1-2 hours away. Maybe you can’t really spend an entire day away, including travel time, or maybe you’re just a bit intimidated to do it all on your own. Here are three ideas for day “trips” that you can do without having to leave the safety, comfort and proximity of your own town.

Idea 1 – for the girly girl:

  1. Shopping – Try going to a mall or shopping area that you’ve never been to or haven’t been to in forever.
  1. Lunch – Try a new restaurant.
  1. Spa treatment(s) – Try something you’ve never done before, like a body wrap, or go with one or two of your faves at a different spa.

Idea 2 – for the outdoorswoman:

  1. Hike/Walk – Head to that trail you’ve been meaning to try or that park that just opened.
  1. Lunch – Try a new cuisine or one you don’t eat often.
  1. Bookstore/Library or Museum – Grab some outdoor adventure books and find a comfy chair or check out the new nature exhibit at the natural history museum.

Idea 3 – for the adventurer:

  1. Activity – What is there to do in your area? Whale watching? Sky diving? A zero-gravity room?
  1. Lunch – Try something you’ve never eaten before.
  1. Action movie/IMAX – Check out the latest action flick or get mind-blown at the IMAX.

There’s something for everyone to have a fun day out and it doesn’t have to involve a whole lot of planning or whole lot of miles on your car. It’s a surefire way to give yourself a little break and remind you that life is about more than work, responsibilities, and routine. And can be found right in your own backyard!
