Travel doesn’t have to mean going hundreds of kilometres from home. Day trips can be quite affordable. You might be surprised with the stuff to do in your hometown or within a few hours’ drive.

We happen to live in a town that attracts thousands of visitors each year. We have lived here for many years and are still discovering things to do. If we only ever visited things within a 50-km radius, we could fill most every weekend for a year or more. This is true of most places.
