There are many wonderful day trips you can take not far from your home. Depending on where you live, there are exciting places to go and things to do and see. Weekends in the summer months is the time to pack up the family and go. The day trip is the perfect opportunity to be with the one's we love and share those wonderful moments that become sweeter in time.

The hardy adventurer must do some preparation before setting out. It is a good idea to pack the car the night before. Making a list of the things you want to take is another way to stay organized. You should take: food and water, cell phone, extra clothes, first-aid-kit, and the all important sunscreen. The last thing to do in the morning is to set your all home security alarm system before leaving the house.

We look at day trips as family activities. A vote is usually taken of where to go and the majority wins. One of our favorite day trips is to spend the day at the lake. We live in Colorado and love to go boating. Our favorite boating lake is the largest fresh water lake in the state- Lake Dillon. We pack a picnic lunch then head out with our boat in tow. Once the boat is in the water then the fun begins. We generally lose track of time and before we know it, the day has passed us by. But there is always another weekend. That is the beauty of summer.

    Nothing beats going on an outing with family, bonding...and spending quality time together. Sad that many are simply too busy with work or their own social activities for that.

    i love day trips to Ayie, and not to worry about what is left behind because of security :)

    Great shots and I agree that day trips are fun. Looks like a good summer spot. I am glad you mentioned sunscreen. As a melanoma survivor I am particularly concerned that people realize the risks of unprotected skin.
