Travel Indoors

If you are in the Northern Hemisphere this time of year you are most likely experiencing cold, rainy, icy and snowy weather. It won’t be long now before some of us get “cabin fever,” that irresistible urge to break out of the house to somewhere, anywhere, just to get out of the house.  Here’s a tip, check out your local museum.  If you are near a large city you are likely near one of the country’s best places to visit, indoors, away from the wind and cold.  These are great places to renew your interests, learn more about something you perhaps haven’t taken the time to consider.

Last month we were visiting my son and his family and we decided to visit one of the Smithsonian’s museums in Washington.  It was a short drive for us.  I had a lot of fun looking at vintage aircraft up to and including the Space Shuttle, “Discover.”  But here is another tip, don’t go with young children unless you have a stroller.  We expected to rent one, but they didn’t rent them out so our time was reluctantly short.  I included a few pictures below and some kinks to museums that may be near you.

Happy traveling indoors for all of us who are locked into winter time in the Northern Hemisphere.

    Unfortunately I only provided a list in my blog of the larger places to visit in the US. There are many more smaller but fun places. For example, I live in a town of about 100,000 people and we have a small children’s museum that is worth a few hours of time.

    I would suspect that every country has places that house its culture and history. Your background is truly amazing. These experiences are sadly lacking by many of in North America.

    By the way, I thought the picture of your children was beautiful.

    Wow! Such a great list of places to visit! It’s a shame we’re too fare away.. Constantly searching Internet to find places where we can keep the kids entertained over the weekends during winter season.
