Discuss: How Do You Find Adventure at Home?

Finding adventure at home can be as easy as finding the sites that'll interest you.

I don’t know about you, but I have a big problem when it comes to traveling at home: when I’m on the road, I tend to be much more adventurous.

Staying in hostel dorm rooms? No problem. Taking public transportation everywhere? Of course. However, when I’m at home, I find it hard to get excited about exploring the area around me and prefer to take the easy way out by driving or even just staying in entirely.

So, for this week’s question, I want to find out how you find adventure at home?

For me, it was with starting a new website dedicated to travel in my home state of Pennsylvania: Through this site, I have an outlet for my local writing and photography, but it also gives me the excuse and motivation to get out and explore Pennsylvania. And, while the state may not have a ton of world-class sites, there are definitely more than enough places to visit to keep me busy for a long time.

What about you? Have you come up with a solution to help you explore your home? How do you find adventure while traveling at home?


  1. I often check the official tourism website of my city, especially the latest news/events sections. Usually they update it with new tours/adventures possibilities so it’s helpful for discovering new things 🙂

  2. I added a PNW section to my blog. Since I am new the the Seattle area, I find ways to share my experiences through hiking and festivals and just exploring my new city and its surroundings!
