Sometimes the best get aways can happen close to home.  It is not a bad idead to play 'hometown tourist' and enjoy the fun things that your city or surrounding areas have to offer.  In fact, it may lead to hidden discoveries such as the ones I discovered on a recent trip to Pennsylvania.  So go ahead.  Take a weekend to explore a destination nearby.  Who knows, you may find a new favorite spot and be more open to enjoying these little escapes all year.
