It’s no secret, my favorite vacation has been shared here more than once! If I’m going away with my family and need to chill I’m definitely heading to the beach. There is just so much in this world that I still want to see and have always struggled with how to really accomplish that in my short time here. Well, lately I’ve found new getaways to dream about!
So many of my friends “in real life” as well as blogger friends have been on amazing road trips this year. Here’s the deal, our family loves a good road trip. We have road tripped to Omaha 4 times, from California to Texas via Route 66, to Destin Florida, to Ruidoso, New Mexico and Springfield, Missouri. We always have a great time. Here’s the deal though, just getting out of Texas takes a REALLY long time and, honestly, the pieces of Texas I think are beautiful I have seen hundreds of times. Why in the world have I never considered planning a road trip with a flight to and from the starting and ending points? Well, maybe because sometimes I just don’t think that far outside the box! Thankfully I have some super creative friends who do!
Tanya from The Other side of the Road took her family on a fun trip this summer originating in Boston and traveling up the east coast. You can begin her journey here.
If I can find a time to schedule it just right, the trip Cassie of Hi Sugarplum took with her family over spring break to several national parks. See her itinerary here.
My friend Katy, while originating in Texas, traveled up to Chicago with lots of fun stops on the way. If you really want to road trip with kids she has some tips to make your road trip great.
And lastly, my friend Cindy took the most amazing trip around Iceland in a camper van!! I wish she blogged so I could share it with you.
So I’m now on the quest to plan a road trip to see as much as I can in a 4 day window but still relax and enjoy some of this beautiful country we live in. If you have never browsed around Roadtrippers.com you definitely need to take a look. It has definitely given me some ideas to help me dream up a great getaway!
I’m looking for a 3 night 4 day or 4 night 5 day getaway for Keith and I to head out and do some exploring. Some of the top starting spots on my list to start building around are Seattle, Chicago or Boston. I need a little city for me but enough scenery and wildlife to keep my man entertained. All three have water nearby which always makes him happy!
Do you live in an amazing part of the country you think we should road trip through? I’d love to hear!
