It’s summer. The weather is super warm and it’s vacation time for you and your girlfriend. Instead of doing the usual beach bum thing, why not go on a fun road trip? Road trips are the best because you get to see the country, explore new territory, and experience new things with someone special. And all the adventures you two go on (as well as hours stuck in a car together) will be a great bonding experience. Below are three road trip ideas that will surely be memorable.
BBQ Road Trip. There are all different types of BBQ. From Tennessee to South Carolina to Georgia, Texas, Missouri, Illinois, and beyond – all these states have within them totally different dialects of BBQ styles that differ by region, city, and neighborhood. Why not map out several cities (or states) and hit the road to taste test all the different kinds? See who has the best brisket in town and whose potato salad is truly award-winning. Yum!
Vineyard Road Trip. There are vineyards and wineries in nearly every state. Just like the BBQ Road Trip, the Vineyard Road Trip will allow you to taste what your state has to offer. Also, you can get drunk. But don’t be an asshole and not purchase any bottles. The point is to get to know your local wineries – not sample product and run. Who knows, maybe you can even do the grape-stomping thing! And a lot of the time, these places have really fresh cheeses and meats, too. So you will also be supporting your local farmers. Done and done.
Roadie Road Trip. Is there a band that you both adore? Why not hit the road with them for a piece of their tour and follow them around for a couple of states? It’ll be fun and exciting to see the different turnouts in each city. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be an artist that sells out stadiums all the time. Sometimes the best shows are the ones in the smaller venues – the vibe is more intimate and chill. So check your brakes, rotate those tires, and saddle up for an amazing adventure on the road! What are you waiting for?
