The Best Vacation Ever A Trip To Nowhere
The Spur of the Moment Trip to Nowhere
Some of the best vacations ever, are a trip to nowhere. No plans, no high expectations, just a spur of the moment pack your overnight bag and go.
Whether it’s a one hour overnight trip to the beach for some lounging in the sun, or a ride through the mountains for days as the seasons change, and you spot your dream house on the mountain top. Trips to nowhere can leave memories that last a lifetime, and bring tranquility to the over stressed, over worked, and the never get a minutes peace mothers who need it the most.
It can’t be the quickest route to get there, or a reservation at your favorite hotel. It’s the back roads with the local diner for some fabulous home cooking, and the people you meet at the country store that make you feel like you’ve lived there for years. Then you find that quaint hotel where the family owners lend you their fishing poles to fish in the lake, or as the sun rises over the jetties at the beach.
You may even find a bed and breakfast that caters to your every need and can’t help but volunteer when it comes to help feed the chickens and gather fresh eggs for breakfast, or pick some fresh strawberries for shortcake at dinner.
After driving around to see the sights and local stores you find an area to drive or walk along the deserted beach where you feel like your on your own private island. Although home and the big city are just a hour or two away, you feel as if your in a different country or have gone back in time.
Maybe its to a wild life park in the Black Hills of South Dakota to watch the bears take a dip in the pond, or the wolf that runs him off standing his ground. Take a look at the videos of the different parks in South Dakota or the one below of Yellowstone with mama bear and her cubs there guaranteed to make you go " Awwwwwww".
If your campers it’s about finding that new spot maybe over near Sanibel Island or Texas off the coast where you can take your shoes of and go digging for clams with your toes. Don’t forget the butter you can warm up at the camp fire or just shuck-em and eat them raw (raw may not be the best idea). If you’ve got the kids or the grandchildren along introduce yourselves to your neighbors, (if you have any) and roast some marshmallows over the fire while you tell stories about your last trip. Then there is always the everglades and the swamp for some alligator wrestling and an air-boat ride.

No Schedules or Cell Phones Allowed
It’s not about planning your day or keeping to a schedule. It’s about driving by somewhere you’ve never been, and you just have to turn around to find out what it’s all about.
Dining out is anything you want it to be from a dress up elegant dinner that you just have to have a new dress for, or just coming off the beach for some freshly made oyster stew or homemade peanut butter pie at Theo Thudpuckers.
It’s about some real quality family time to catch up and see what you’ve been missing out on, because lately everybody at the dinner table together at the same time, has become a thing of the past.
No cell phones, (except for emergencies) no calls from work, no distractions just the two of you, or you and the family to have those moments we surely need to take the time to make more of.
So what are you waiting for, tell the family to pack their bags and when they ask where your going tell them your starting a new family tradition, it’s called “A trip to nowhere”. If it’s a surprise for the one you can’t live without and lately haven’t had time to tell him/her, tell them it’s for some “Just us time.”
Have a safe and wonderful trip and don’t forget the camera.
