This itinerary is best used from June to September between Wednesday – Saturday. Some of our suggestions are seasonal and will close in the early fall. However there are options available to you year-round, your choices will just be limited.

We recommend leaving at 9 am. The later you leave the less time you may have to complete all the stops.

You can bring your furry friend on this trip, however, it will limit you to our outdoor suggestions only. If you would like lots of choices, we suggest leaving them home for the day!

We recommend bringing up to 5 people on your surprise road trip adventure!

Most of the stops are free! Our main suggestion on the first stop ranges from $9-15 per person, however, we have included a free option. One option on your third stop requires an entrance fee of $15 but again, we have included alternatives. Both options on your fourth stop have an entrance fee of $8-15 per person.

We have included a few accommodation recommendations in the confirmation email.
