When the cold winter finally breaks, you probably still have some time before your next travel adventure. There is great opportunity to use the warming weather to full advantage in your own backyard.
Spring is a short-lived phenomenon. It seems like just a few weeks separate bitter cold from blistering heat.
Plan your outdoor activities. As winter starts winding down, get a list of hikes you would like to take together. Whether they are old favorites or new ones you were worried about taking in the cold, the big thaw is a great chance to go on some hikes.
Similarly, get your watersport shoes ready. Kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and more have probably been inaccessible, especially if you live somewhere that freezes over. Take advantage of the thaw and get out on the water. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
A good way to stay out of the sun while still enjoying the outdoors is planning for long hikes. If you go early enough in the season, you will still avoid most of the insects, but the air might get a little chilly. Wait too long and the trees will hold heat while mosquitos and other pests eat you alive.
No matter how you like to spend your time outside, spring is fleeting. Get out and enjoy the weather before sweltering heat forces everyone inside.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
