I will admit that on our first big family trip, we drove simply because it was too expensive to fly with a family of five and because the children were small, I looked for things to do along the way so they could have much needed breaks from the car. BUT, I am so glad I did! The trip to and from our destination, which happened to be Florida, was a blast!
In a world where everyone knows what everyone else had for lunch and what series they just binge watched, I thought I’d share a little about myself.
I’ve been taking road trips since I was a kid and I’ve loved them from the beginning. Trips from my hometown in northern Michigan to Arizona, Florida, Pennsylvania, Wyoming, California, as I got older, trips to Virginia, Massachusetts, Washington D.C. , Maine and Canada and from Virginia to North Carolina during my short time living there. I’ve been privileged to see much of what this amazing country has to offer.
If you haven’t experienced the true joys of road tripping, you are missing out. Let me paint the picture for you. Imagine cruisin’ along, music from you newly composed “Adventure” playlist blasting (or if you prefer, playing mellowly), while you watch the landscape gradually changing. A cityscape, tall buildings, intriguing graffiti on the overpasses and trains sitting on the tracks gives way to fields and farms until you find yourself voyaging through forests, the light flashing between the majestic trees, keeping your eyes open for native wildlife, a moose perhaps.
