Circle Your Hometown
Ready for a new way to find fun things to do nearby?
Fall Break is coming up quickly and although we don’t have any big plans (thanks to sports!!!!), we will take advantage of the fabulous fall weather here in Indiana with lots of day trips.
Instead of checking out the same places we go every year, we have decided to find some NEW everyday adventures. However, without a dog sitter, we can’t go far … so our challenge is to find plenty of fun things to do within about an hour’s radius of where we live.
Instead of just guessing or going to the cities we’ve heard of, I decided to literally circle our hometown.
Look at all those towns within the circle – pretty amazing when you see it on paper! Now that I have a list of potential places we can check out, the research begins. I recently shared with you my favorite resources for this in my post Search Out the Unusual, and those are exactly what I’ll be using for this break.
So what are our plans? So far I’ve found an opalescent glass factory tour, a health bar (kombucha, smoothies, etc.), a cultural center & museum, and quite a few Halloween-themed events. Plus a Fall Out Boy concert, a new brewery, and an apple picking farm! Even without a big trip planned, we will have plenty of fun. Keep an eye out over the next few weeks as I share our adventures.
In the meantime, do you want to be ready for an adventure of your own? I have a bag in the back of my car that I keep stocked with adventure essentials – all the things that make life easier when we are out running around and want to make sure we are prepared for anything.
