Breathe life into your life--or your relationship and be spontaneous with a day trip.
KID-DIRECTED TRIP: Got kids? I suggest you let them pick a piece of paper from a hat: one says "pick the town" one says "pick the food" and one says "pick the picnic place." Pull up the map, let someone pick the town within 50 miles, when you get to the town, let one of them pick the place you pick up lunch. Then, drive around and let one of them pick the place to stop and picnic.
CALENDAR OF EVENTS: Pick a town within the day's drive and pull up the town's calendar of events online. See what's happening there on the weekend. Go there just for that event.
CARNIVALS: Go find the fun on the traveling midway site to find a traveling carnival in your state.
DRIVE-INS: Consider taking your loved one or family or friends to a drive-in theater. They might be in another town, but the trek will be worth it!
Zombie Walk: If you have some good friends who want something to remember, consider looking up zombie walks and plotting and planning for the next one in your area. Start shopping online for makeup and thinking about coming up with a hilarious costume to zombify, like a Victorian era zombie or a zombie cowboy.
Personally, my three most romantic and favorite dates ever--roadside carnival, drive-in theater and sitting out in the desert and looking for UFOs with music playing, cold beer in hand. Of course, making out in a cemetery might be high on the list too.
