Summer is just about half way over, and while just the thought of that is a bit depressing, there’s still plenty of time to plan a few of our favorite summertime activities: Road Trips!
From SafeAuto’s headquarters in Columbus, there are tons of great road trip options. From small towns to big cities, you’ll be able to find whatever you’re looking for within a short 6-hour drive. Here’s a list of a few of our favorite road trip destinations from Columbus:
- Chicago: Chicago in the summer is arguably one of the best cities in the country. Everyone is so excited for the warm weather and it seems that the whole city is outside for an entire three months. Catch a Cubs game in Wrigleyville, bike along Lake Michigan, or catch one of the many street fests that Chi town has going on each and every weekend.
- Pittsburgh: Check out PNC Park, one of the best ballparks in the country, have lunch at Primati’s and scale Mount Washington in a cable car from 1877 for a unique ride and amazing view of the city!
- Washington DC: Spend the day outside walking around the National Mall. Check out all of the great memorials, museums, and national monuments, and take a break for lunch at one of the many food trucks surrounding the mall. Spend some time shopping in Georgetown and then head to Adam’s Morgan for bars and great Ethiopian food or huge pizza slices.
- Nashville: Between Vanderbilt’s campus, the Grand Ole Opry, and the fun street of Broadway, you won’t run out of things to do in Nashville. Check out one of the many BBQ joints for dinner and a honky tonk (or two or three) for drinks and dancing!
These are just a few of the many awesome road trips that you can take from Columbus. Just make sure that you have state minimum auto insurance before you hit the road. For a free auto insurance quote, keep SafeAuto in mind!
