Next week, everyone will be enjoying their last summer break. Worried that you’ll be stuck at home or worse, stuck in traffic from all the Labor Day travel? If you’re willing to try different things you should be able to find something that will make your long weekend wonderful and memorable.

Road Trip Vacation ideas
Depending on what area of the country you live in, there are different mini vacations you can take without going broke.
If you want to go somewhere and avoid a bunch of tourists in the same spot, visiting one of our wonderful national parks is a fantastic option. There are some breathtaking parks around the country.
Wine tasting and winery tours offer opportunities to relax and enjoy the scenery. Check out your state’s tourism site to see if they have winery tours available. I love trying out new foods when we travel and I enjoy discovering hole-in-the-wall places, so when I heard about Roadfood.com I knew I found my perfect road trip site.

I would check out your local radios stations’ sites to see if there are any free or cheap concerts and music festivals going on
