It’s August already and in the coming weeks and months there is much to be done. But, it’s nearing the end of summer and I’m getting a little bored of Michigan and wanting some adventure! I want to get out of town, even for a few days, although with the wedding coming I don’t want to spend a bunch of money. I’ve been researching places we could go, without flying, and without driving for a full day. I’m not sure we’ll even have the opportunity to go, especially with a wedding to pay for, but here are the contenders:
Niagara Falls – About 5 hours away, but I’ve never been there and it would be interesting. Besides antiquing, I don’t think there are a lot of other activities in the area.
Cleveland – A bout 3 hours away, home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and on Lake Erie. I’ve never been to Cleveland, although I’ve heard some good things about it.
Pittsburgh – About 5 hours away and a big city full of lots of different activities. I have been to Pittsburgh before, but not since high school and it might be fun to see it again.
Chicago – About 4 hours away, and full of hustle and bustle. We visited there last October and it was HOT, but we saw a lot and had a good time.
Toronto – About 5 hours away, and technically a ‘foreign’ country. There are a ton of cultural activities and big-city attractions to stay busy for a weekend.
