If you are over 40, there has never been a better time to become a road warrior and take frequent road trips. Grab a friend or two, decide on a destination and find out what you’ve been missing all of these years. Road trips can be as simple as a day or weekend get-away or they can be 1-2 weeks of open road exploration.
It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to enjoy a road trip. Part of the fun is just relaxing, turning up the radio and listening to the music you want to listen to and maybe enjoying the company of a friend or spouse. You can stop when you want to stop and see the things that interest you without having to keep kids entertained. Explore your own path or follow a historical one such as the Lewis can Clark Trail. Their are limitless possibilities on what to do on road trips. The important thing is you just get in the car and go. If you have never enjoyed a road trip without the kids, you are in for a real treat!
Regardless of what your experiences were taking trips with the kids, you haven’t lived until you’ve taken a road trip just for adults! The freedom, change of scenery, exploration and enjoyment will be something that you will want to do again and again. If you have never taken an adult road trip and you are not sure where to start then pick a destination that is only a few hours from your home. You can plan to drive back the same day but you really shoyuld consider staying at least one night at your destination. Explore a new city and eat at a new restaurant whether it is a 5* restaurant or a quaint little cafe in a small town. Once you get a feel for it there will be no stopping you.
