Vacation In Your Town

I often show you Groupons as great ideas for getaways or even to watch in cities you might be visiting in the future.  They offer everything from food, to spas to touristy things to do.

This weekend we finally cashed in one of our Groupons and went out on the town for the afternoon.  The best part was, even though we were in our city, it felt kind of like a vacation.  We don’t normally do touristy things in our city.  I should say, we never do touristy things, and renting a pedicab in the city, felt like a touristy thing to do.

Thanks to PDX Pedicab we had a great time being biked from distillery to distillery sampling some great vodka, gin and even some sake.

There are so many things you can do for a fraction of the price in your city that you need to take advantage of.  I know my friend in San Diego took her mom on tour with these mini cars you rent.  She said it was a blast. Another time she took her son on a 2 hour Segway tour.

Not going anywhere, that’s fine.  Watch for great Staycation ideas in your city.
