Think you can’t afford a vacation this year? This is one of my top ten ideas for fun and relaxation close to home.
Take a tour of your State Capitol building. This is something everyone should do at least once. This may be a bit of a drive depending on where you live, but will be worth it. If you have children spend a few days before the trip helping them study your state. After the tour, encourage them to talk, ask questions and perhaps write an essay.
