Local Markets and Picturesque Towns

I decided to share the day with my mom as it is something exciting and thought I could share memories and moments with her as we are getting older. It was the best trip ever and we are booking more events as we still talk about it almost 6 months later. We learned a lot of interesting facts, the stops the people are amazing and nice.. it was really a great fun adventure and can't wait to do more. Plan to spend the day so your not rushed it truly is a great memory I will cherish forever.. (we are 40 and 61) I found it more fun with a friend/family than my spouse

We split the trip into 3 outings, as there was so much to do. We have also made return trips to some of the locations as we loved them so much.

Wonderful gift idea!

Bought this as a gift for my husband for Christmas. It was such a fun activity to do together. Totally a bargain. It filled an entire day for us and was filled with so much fun and exploration. One of the stops was even a place that we go all the time (my mom lives there) but we had never done the activities that were planned for there and it gave us a new perspective on a familiar place. Can't recommend enough!
