Cable prices going up ? Got the boss on your back ? Commuting through traffic with road raging crazy people ? Well it’s time to take a break ! Recreation means re-creating yourself, but how can you do that if you’re always in the same slump ? Maybe it’s time to get out of the familiar, and step into adventure
There are places to go right here in the United States that can take your stress level down. And if your stress level is fine, any one of these great locations is bound to distract you in a positive way.


New Orleans, Louisiana – The French Quarter…Creole and Cajun dialects. For a change of pace try out the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Go on out and have some fun.

Or if you prefer something more family oriented, take a flight out to California and find the Hand prints of your favorite movie stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This four mile pavement event is not for the faint of heart, so take bottled water and a camera. In the Los Angeles district, there is also a familiar theme park that the kids will recognize on sight. Disneyland is loaded with candy, games, roller coasters, and lots and lots of adult sized Disney characters. Say hello to Mickey for me.

A few hours east of there, sets Los Vegas, Nevada. This is not necessarily the most tranquil of places, but it’s almost guaranteed to take your mind off of home. There are so many things to do…Harrah’s casino, Hoover Dam, The Sky Needle, Red Rock Canyon, Shows, Black Jack, Margaritas, and food. You can get dizzy just thinking about all the options.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is another beautiful place to visit. A place where the sand meets the shore at an angle that makes you marvel at God’s creativity. Sight..this place is heavenly. Once you’ve finished languishing in the soothing, serene sounds of the beach, get over to the Nascar Speedway and watch a few races. Or take a chartered boat tour and go fishing with Captain Chris of Longway Chartered Fish Boats in Little River. There’s also dinner theaters and Water sports shops to enjoy as well.

Let’s not forget breathtaking Tampa Bay, Florida . There are so many lovely sights to see. Taste the salt on your tongue as a cool breeze blows you to your next destination, The Tampa Bay Buccaneer Stadium.

There’s also the white sands and blue waters of Clearwater beach, less than 10 miles away, and Indian casinos on Hillsborough Avenue, as well as a major dog race track, and Jai Alai Coliseum.

Nashville, Tennessee has an adventure of it’s own. The magnificent splendor of Ruby Falls. This cavern was discovered by diggers long ago. The stumbled across the beautiful rock formations and followed an underground stream to a waterfall inside the cavern. The entrance to the cavern is made completely of Limestone.

Atlanta, Georgia also has its appeal. Now home to Tyler Perry Studios. If you’re a Tyler Perry productions fan, go visit and have a walk through.

To pick up the pace you can always visit Six Flags Over Georgia…a rollercoaster park that’s wild and fun. There’s also Turner Broadcasting, Cartoon, Network, White Water Waterpark, and Stone Mountain.

Aspen, Colorado has a totally different vibe. This wintery Wonderland has snow capped mountains that make you feel like you’re closer to the clouds. This place is perfect for romance.
