We live in Kentucky. You have SO much to do in this state. We usually do a google search of drives within 25, 50, 1oo miles and pick somewhere to go. We always pack snacks, water and sandwiches. Sometimes where we go is a place to eat, so that is part of the fun. People would be surprised at all their city or neighboring city has to offer.

postcards are great. put them in a big clear vase so you can see them. write the date on the back for a reminder.
i also love to find something small; whether it be a ring, earrings, tiny artwork, magnet, dish towel. just something bright & cheery to remember my trip.
