Been There, Done That

I love looking for new places to visit and activities to enjoy. I get most of my ideas looking on-line or at Pinterest along with books such as 1,000 Places to Visit Before You Die. One of my favorite ways to get ideas is from other people. It’s usually talking to someone where you learn the great, secret place to see. Every week or so we are off to a new campground looking for new adventures to enjoy. I have made a list below of where we have been and what we have done. Feel free to leave a comment on your favorite spot or a bucket list activity. Happy traveling!!
