Chances are even if you're not in a major metro there's something interesting to do, see, or take part. Here's how:
1. National parks - America is truly the beautiful and its national parks are a huge part. Hit the road and check out whatever you might have near by. You can do a web search to find where, what and how.
2. Historical locations - It might sound funny to have lunch at a historical restaurant, or attend an annual event in your town. But it can be an interesting way to get out and about.
3. The usual suspects - Museums, zoos and aquariums are great places to spend an afternoon and your attendance helps take care of the animals, fish, and grounds.
4. Donate your time - Dozens of charities from animal care to the elderly could use an extra hand. It's hardly work to give to a good cause. Check out local organizations to find out about volunteering for a day.
5. Tours - Nearly every city or state has a range of tours and adventures from historical sites to interesting forms of travel and more. Treat yourself like a tourist for a day and delve into whatever's local.
