A place you didn’t realize you should go.
Ahhhh, do you feel it? That sense of rebirth and hope; the inkling to embrace something new. In the spring, that feeling is everywhere if we take time to notice. As the world around us begins to renew itself, what a great time for us to do the same, treating ourselves with something new and different— a vacation!
Now more than ever we may be looking for chances to see and do things we’ve never done before. We’ve been reminded that our time is precious, and we should celebrate it. Today’s Transitions spoke with Beth Chaffin, travel specialist with Unlimited Travel Consultants, who shared some unique trip ideas for those who are willing to trade in their sunscreen and beach towel for some adventure.
“A vacation refreshes our spirits, but what I think of these days is how to foster a renewed sense of hope. We’ve had a rough few years, but we can have the new adventures of our dreams. There is a lot going on, and many wonderful and unusual places to go,” Beth says. Here is one possibility:
The Shady Dell in Bisbee, Arizona
Perhaps you fancy a road trip on historic Highway 80, which spans from Savannah, Georgia to San Diego, California. In the 1920s, Bisbee, Arizona had a trailer park that served as a camping and resting spot for those traveling the long road. In keeping with that heritage, The Shady Dell Vintage Trailer Court has been in operation for more than 30 years. Their uniquely decorated trailers are practical, functional, and retro chic. Dot’s Diner is well known for its delicious fare. This is a laid-back, modernized trip to the past that will engage couples and families alike. And you can get there on an airplane if the idea of that long road trip doesn’t bring joy to your heart. theshadydell.com
