Get Away From Magazines

14 Jul

I have to stop going to the grocery store because I always buy some “Special Edition” magazine. “Special Edition” is the code for something that costs more than a regular magazine. Yesterday, I got one called Great American Getaways that was put out by LIFE.Getaway

I read it and decided that the money spent meant that I should do more than that. Therefore, we have a post.

This is going to be simple. List the getaways. Write if I have ever been to them. Yes or no answers will suffice.

Mount Desert, Maine – No

The Freedom Trail, Boston, Massachusetts – Yes

Franconia, New Hampshire – No

Block Island, Rhode Island – No

Mystic, Connecticut – No

    Only 19. I feel deprived 😉

      It was a good 19, though.

    13, I’d say most ant place on that list would be a worthy experience. No plans on making this my bucket list though,

      Everyone’s bucket list is unique.

    Six! I’m obviously undercultured and not well-traveled. I should hold a fundraiser so something can be done about that. 🙂

    • Rick July 14, 2015 at 19:52 #

      There are a lot of things to see. This list isn’t the end-all-be-all.

      • NotAPunkRocker July 14, 2015 at 19:53 #

        Oh, I know, but I do know I haven’t traveled very much at all. I do plan to fix that one day soon 🙂

      • Rick July 14, 2015 at 19:54 #

        It’s a fun thing to do.

      • Marilyn Armstrong July 14, 2015 at 19:54 #

        Yes. And for some reason, Grand Canyon’s not on it. Or Martha’s Vineyard. Or anyplace outside the USA 🙂
