Seeking Adventure// Take A DayTrip

We all want adventure. Me, I crave it. I love doing things, going places, seeing new wonders. While I may have just returned from a nice mini vacation to Las Vegas, you don't have to travel across the United States to have a good time.

Sometimes adventure is right in your backyard, or just a few hours away. Want to get away? Take A DayTrip.




We are very lucky to live just a few hours from one of the most beautiful places in the world, Niagara Falls. You now need a passport to get in to Canada, but since we got them last year for our cruise we have taken a few trips across the border.

There's so much fun in a daytrip,  including the spontaneity of it all. When you have beautiful sights within a few hours of travel, it's easy to hop in the car and go. All you need is a few hours of freedom, a full tank of gas, and a camera to make some memories.

This past summer when we went as a family we enjoyed walking around, seeing the Falls, riding a huge ferris wheel, shopping and eating a fun meal together.














There is so much to do and see, yes...eat while out on a day trip. Other favorite day trip locations we enjoy are: Pittsburgh, Cleveland and sometimes Buffalo.

Day trips make excellent family fun excursions, and great date days. They have all the excitement of a vacation without the luggage, hotel reservations, and detailed plans.
 Let yourself go...explore, indulge, seek adventure!!

What places are close to your home? Where are your favorite day trip destinations?

  1. hi jealous, party of one here, I want to see the falls! I don't think I'd trade living in a warm place to be close to it, but day trips down here call for a lot of imagination..

  7. I love day trips! When I lived in Rochester I'd go up to Niagara Falls and Toronto every so often. Another favorite was the Finger Lakes!

  8. So much fun! I wish I lived near Canada. It would be a two day trip just to get there. I do love taking trips around Texas and visiting small little quaint towns.

  9. I wish I was closer to places that you could consider a day trip. My state is fairly spacious and the center is right around where I live. Anything that may be of value to visit is at least 4+ hours away. But that just means more road trips and I love those! I really want to see Niagra Falls! That's neat that you live near it.

  10. The falls look beautiful! I went many many years ago when I was a teenager but I would love to return to do some adult touring. That's very cool is a short drive for you. Me...not so much!
