On The Cusp Of Spring Break. Are You ReadyFor Some Local Fun?
By N3 Spring Break Ops Team
Years ago when the folks from N3 World Headquarters and Dog Dropping Depository (one of the few disadvantages of snowmelt) had children around we often spent Spring Break traveling to a variety of places. Of course, if you’ve done this you know what a great time it is to be on the road since most of the civilized (and otherwise) world seems to be heading for southern beaches or to the west for some skiing or perhaps aiming to see the cherry blossoms in DC or maybe even on a journey to New York to see….well…. to see New York, I guess.
Airports? Well, let’s just say the enhanced rudeness quotient-always at an escalated level in airports-amps up markedly due to the place just absolutely teeming with a large number of infrequent fliers. You can almost cut the collective tension with a jack-knife (if one was allowed to have one, that is).
Then there are those times when one chooses to make it a staycation. Nothing lifts the spirits like...
...a week off when you needn’t go anywhere that requires packing. A time to take in some of the things that bring others to your area and maybe engage in a few day trips as well.
And it is for you Staycayers, and especially those of you with children, that we offer a few tips to keep the week as fun and enlightening as a trip to Mammoth Cave with significantly smaller swarms of humanity.
We will be posting some ideas this week for activities and day trips beginning with some very local options.
Wendy Sinicki who serves as Newaygo County Welcome Center Volunteer and Marketing Coordinator compiled these tips for a little outdoor activity as well as some indoor options, each just a short jaunt from home.
