Whether or not you agree Christopher Columbus was the first settler in the Americas due to research suggesting it was the Vikings some 400 years prior, Columbus Day is still a great time to broaden our horizons by discovering new things around us.  If you read our post the other day, School Breaks: Year Round Travel Opportunities for Families, then you probably sat down with the family calendar to map out your own travel schedule.  Well, here are a few travel opportunities you may want to consider for the next break from school, Columbus Day, next month in October:

  • Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, MA is a great to experience life as a Pilgrim.  Enjoy hand-made crafts, a Pilgrim’s lunch and more.  This is Annual Fall Festival time, so you should not have a shortage of activities to partake in.
  • Pony Express Museum in St. Joseph, MO. “On April 3, 1860, a lone rider left on horseback from the gates of one of the nation’s most historic landmarks, the Pikes Peak Stables in St. Joseph, Missouri. Carrying saddlebags filled with our nations hopes and dreams, the riders traveled 2000 miles west to Sacramento, California. These brave young souls raced against nature’s cruel elements and rugged terrain in an attempt to unite a country separated by distance. Today the stables continue to stand as a tribute to the legend and legacy of the Pony Express and its enduring era. (Source: Pony Express Website)”
  • If you want to keep it a little more modern, then you can hit the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, FL.  Head on over to their website, the next rocket launch is tomorrow, September 10th, the Delta II.  When you plan your trip, take time to lunch with an astronaut and enjoy one of the many shows available.

Whatever, you choose to do for Columbus Day, it is a long weekend so don’t let it pass you by.  Make sure to stop by and share your experiences with us.  We love to hear them.  Next post, we’ll explore Fall Getaways for the whole season.

Thank you.
