I saw on TV the other night that gas prices are the lowest they have been in six years! SIX YEARS!! Do you understand how crazy that is?!?! We all know they won't stay that low for long, so take advantage of it. And by take advantage I don't mean go stock up on gas like its the apocalypse.
Road trips are almost an American past time. The United States is a gorgeous place and as such lends itself to amazing scenery regardless of your location. (If you're not in the US, there are plenty of places around the world that are built for road trips. Send me an email and we can discuss…plus it would just be fun to chat :D). You can road trip pretty much anywhere in the US, and the view outside your window will never disappoint.
A road trip does not mean that you have to pack up in an RV and travel across the country (even though that would be AWESOME). I realize that we have just gotten through the holidays, so vacation time might not be in abundant supply. But most likely there are wonders just hours away that you have never had time to see before. Mansion tours, waterfalls, hiking paths, natural wonders (like in the Great Smokey Mountains of Tennessee every year, a bazzillion fireflies come out and do a synchronized light dance. Check it out), could be anything. Sometimes the areas closest to you end up being the areas you explore the least. And even if all you have is a weekend your possibilities are still endless.
For example. Branson, Missouri! *Crickets Crickets* Hear me out on this one. Branson is filled with entertainment, music, shows, a whole variety of things to do. But the best part about it, Branson is within a days drive from almost anywhere in the continental US! No joke! A DAYS DRIVE! And thats just one place. There are places all over the country that might be even cooler and even closer, you just have to look.
And sometimes, it doesn’t matter about your destination, its the journey that counts. For those type of people, check out this site or this one or THIS ONE! They are filled with ideas for the best road side attractions in the world. My personal favorite. The Cryptozoology Museum!
In fact check out this site too. Roadtrippers has tons of ideas of crazy amazing places to go and see all over the US. All meant for road trips. And while we are at it, lets add one more link. The 39 BEST ROAD TRIP SONGS!!
Now you have everything you need to get out there and there is no better time than now to add adventure to your life, so go and hit the open road!
