  • I love going on day trips in my state. We normally go to a State Park or to a hiking trail that we want to do. Sometimes we will just go explore a small town.

  • What state are you in, Jeremy's Mom? A small town like a ghost town?

  • Georgia. No, not a ghost town, but just a small town that has mom and pop stores downtown and maybe some history sites.

  • We have many places around that are easy day trips. I would say we go about once a month unless the weather is horrendous for a long time and that doesn't happen that often.

  • There are several state parks, lakes, caves, and rivers to visit here. I plan on taking my DS to the McWane Science center one day soon. He would also really enjoy the Space and Rocket Center. We will make that trip one day.

  • We have two small kids so long trips would be a problem. We're in NY so day trips for us are to the Bronx Zoo, The NY Aquarium/Coney Island Amusements. Then if we head out east it's to another Aquarium or plant nurseries that have lots of farm animals & the Game Farm.

  • mommy_jules, I saw a brochure about the McWane Science Center in our local Boy Scout store the other day. It looks neat. Let me know if you like it. I have been thinking about taking Jeremy there.

    I really wish we'd driven *maybe* half an hour to go see the Winchester House when we lived up there...
