Exploring Without Leaving Your State

It sure can be nice to pack your bags and go on a long trip. But let’s also be realistic: it’s not always a viable option. There are times when we don’t have the time or money to take a trip to a distant land. Plus, the coronavirus pandemic has kind of made it difficult to travel anyway. But that doesn’t mean that we have to settle for a life of no exploration. There are plenty of ways to explore, even without leaving the state. In this blog, we’re going to run through some handy tips that’ll ensure that you’re never too far from an adventure.

Nearby Towns and Cities

When people travel, they nearly always decide to go to one of the big and popular destinations. But they’re just the most famous destinations — they’re not the only destinations! If you dive into a map of your state, you’ll probably find that there are plenty of places that you’ve never been to. Do they have something to offer? There’s no reason to think they’ve got nothing! You can explore other cities and towns, but also look into the great outdoors. Every state has its beauty points — have you seen yours?

Into Nature

And talking of the great outdoors: when you can’t travel further afield, there’s a lot to love about setting forth on an adventure into nature. This is something that A. will give you the sense of adventure you crave, and B. is easy enough to do that you can do it every week. All you’ll need is a few basics. For instance, you’ll need a good car, such as a Range Rover, that can handle the terrain of the outside world. If you can also invest in some outdoor clothing and a great tent, you’ll be able to have an adventure virtually every weekend, if you want. 


But who says that you even need to leave your city? You don’t have to. An increasingly popular option is taking a staycation. With this, you’ll just book yourself into a hotel in your city and play tourist. It can sound kind of silly, but once you’ve done it, you’ll discover that it can be a lot of fun — it’ll certainly give you a different perspective of the place where you live. If you’re going to do this, then be sure to commit to the plan; that means doing all the tourist things your town has to offer! Another avenue into your culture is to dive deep into the history, food, famous sites, and more. A lot of people end up living in a place without really thinking about what made it what it is. But when you look, you’ll find there’s a lot there. 

The Mindset

Finally, remember that most of adventuring is the mindset. If you have an explorer’s mind, then you’ll never be too far from having a fun trip. If you look around, you’ll find that there’s adventure around every corner. Sometimes, it’s just about having an inch of curiosity.
