Exploring your own city

Wow, my blogging has been terrible this past week huh? It has been filled with crazy events. Don't worry, I have some different and interesting posts for you this week. Anyway, on to the post!

My best friend from college visited me on Friday. She is from the city, and has never been to Amish country. I had formulated my plan to take her to do some "country things." So we visited some quaint shops and ate some lunch. Then we headed into Amish country. She was amazed at how they live and how beautiful the scenery was. While we were hanging out, this blog post came to mind.

The shops that we visited have been in my area for a long time. I had not been there in years. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice they were. We also went to a local cheese house and explored around in there. I again hadn't been in there in many years.

What I did, was explore my own area. Many times we often get stuck in a rut with where we go in our daily lives, myself included. The only thing it cost me was lunch money and gas money, so under $20 bucks. Through this, I have now learned about a new restaurant, and some new shops that I can peruse that is 15 minutes from my house.

I encourage you to take a day and explore your area. Visit a new restaurant you haven't been to. Visit some shops that you haven't been to, or just be a tourist in your own city. Pass a donut shop on your way to work but never stop? Stop in one day and treat yourself!

Have you ever had a "staycation?" Have you explored your own city? I'd love to hear from you! Leave me a comment and let me know!
