Sometimes the best vacation is right under your nose!

3 Oct

My husband and I spent a wonderful and romantic weekend together a few weeks ago. We enjoyed a fun concert, star-gazed, spent time together enjoying the mountains, and had a delicious  homemade breakfast.  It. Was. Awesome. Guess where we were? Oak City, UT. Where? Exactly.

Often times, it seems like in order to enjoy a vacation, it requires a lot of preparation and planning. We think we have to book a hotel, find a rental car, plan meals and activities that won’t be too expensive, pack, and hop on a plane. That’s a great way to spend a vacation, but it can be costly and require a lot of time off work.

If you are looking for a fun getaway, but don’t have a lot of time to plan, time to get away from work or kids, or maybe funds are low for the month, try exploring somewhere that is near your hometown. You’ll find every area has its charm.

We live in Utah, and we have enjoyed small getaways to Oak City, Moab, Park City, Salt Lake City, Eden, and the Unitas and the Wasatch Mountains, to name a few.

All you need to have fun is good company, a couple card games, some time in nature, and a delicious meal.
