Plan a trip to your town!

Plan a trip to your town!

If I were to bring my family camping to your town for a weekend this summer, what would we do?

Intinerary to include:
Where to camp? Dates of local festivals? Events? Things to see? Places to eat? Culture? Shopping?

Even the smallest of small towns have exciting things that go on - and sometimes quirky things (such as the beloved "Catfish days" of our own home town!) We're looking to plan a handful of weekend trips this summer to places we've never been - and who better to ask for destinations than the people who live there every day.

Near or far, we'd like to know - why is your town worth visiting?

The City of High Springs is less than 5000 population. We have a few festivals throughout the year. A farmers market every Thursday.

Lots of springs where swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, cave diving and fishing can be done in the immediate area. We have two dive shops in town. Two state parks nearby where camping is allowed. River Rise also has boondocking and stables provided so you can camp with your horse and go trail riding.

In Atlanta you have Stone Mountain Park. Nice park with the laser show everynight. Boat rides just a fun park. You are about 45 minutes from turner stadium. You could catch a Braves & Cub game. I am sure being from the south side of town you are Chi Sox fan, but braves games are fun.

This is a simple one....

You would join the Four Corners Unit of the WBCCI and come to the annual Balloon Fiesta Rally in Albuquerque!

Estancia (pop 750 and site of the last public hanging in NM) has parades and celebrations at the drop of a hat. During the summer there is the Memorial Day Parade and park concert, the mile long garage sale, Old Timers Day in July and Labor Day Parade and park concert. We have the only outdoor swimming pool in 50 miles.

There will be the 1st annual WBBCI Pumpkin Chunking Rally here in October.

More than a dozen films have been shot in Estancia.

You can park it in my yard or at Arthur Lake Park down the block
Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.

Hotlava neat thread!

Here in South East Michigan you could visit the Bavarian village of Frankenmuth or Bonners world's largest Christmas Store and grounds. The Ford Museum has past president's vehicles, the Oscar Meyer Weiner wagon, Rosa Parks bus, Tom Thumb's coach, the silver aluminum orb of futuristic housing and aviation displays, Thomas Edison's breath in a tube, a real silver diner, McDonalds first golden arches and so much more.

For camping I would go East to Sleeping Bear Dunes and try to climb the dunes with the steepest grade of sand possible before it shifts downhill or go North to Macinaw Island and Bridge connecting the upper and lower penisula of Michigan or the UP and see the wonders of the Great Lakes and forests in natural and powerful beauty.

Sorry but Motown is but a rememberance, a casualty to a devastating fire.

Our favorite state park is Porcupine Mountain Wilderness with a campground on Lake Superior and miles of geological wonder and waterfalls. Taquamenon Falls area would be a close second along with the shipwreck museum of the Edmund Fritzgerald and lighthouse and shore of Whitefish Point.

Then as if that wasn't enough, Michigan houses the greatest concentration of the original Rivettes, the fiesty We Can Tow It ladies, and then there's ME!

We may have 9 months of winter and three months of poor sledding but that all builds a healthy constitution.
