Making your own adventures wherever you are is a great pastime and can create some incredible memories. There is often much in our own backyards that remains unexplored. Go ahead and try something new. Visit that museum you’ve been longing to see. Make a day of it and bring a lunch or head out to a new soup and sandwich place, or try a spring menu at a local restaurant. Being a tourist in your own town or one nearby opens up your eyes to the wonders around us and knits us closer to our own communities. Take along the children for a little fun and learning and or have fun with a friend as a new way to enjoy that doesn’t involve the mall. Bring a note book and jot down those things that have piqued your interest and take your exploring online for some additional adventuring and share what you’ve learned with others. For some suggestions on making this tradition yours, listen to this podcast and use the handy list to plan some fun!
