Recently I read a blog post about 8 Great Alternative Budget Vacation Ideas by one of my favorite travel bloggers, Nomadic Matt. One of his tips was to be a local tourist. I don’t know about you, but I have not taken full advantage of all that my city has to offer. Have you?
So in light of this idea, I ventured off on a mini road trip last weekend with family and friends to explore the little gold rush town of Julian to go apple picking and wine tasting. Only an hour drive away from San Diego, we hit the sierras and escaped the local beach towns and large highways for little windy roads and beautiful fall leaves. It was a refreshing change of scenery without having to venture too far.
So be a little spontaneous this weekend and be a tourist in your city. Happy Friday!
