I’ve been obsessed with travel for as long as I can remember. Even before I graduated high school, traveling was one of my top goals for the future. I even worked full-time as a travel editor for several years at the start of my writing career. Travel is life-changing and soul-enriching and everyone should be able to do it at some point in their lives. Now as much as I love exploring the world beyond the United States, International travel is not always in the budget. Sometimes my husband and I get the travel bug and just need to act on it before saving up for a year or more to go on a grand European vacation. The U.S. is a huge country and there’s lots of beauty, culture, and history to experience right here in our own backyards, so we hit the road at least a couple of times a year, especially now that we have two small kids who travel with us 100 percent of the time. Road trips are totally our jam. If you live in the New York-metro area like we do, there are so many unique and interesting places you can drive to in under six hours. These are some of my favorites.
