trafficA new way to reduce commuter stress – Stay and play!  Avoid rush hour too!

From time to time I’m tourist in my own town. There are times, when I’ve pulled off the freeway and away from rush hour gridlock, to discover new hiking trails, visit local observatories and rooftop hotel bars downtown just for the view – all out of my norm and a lot of fun.

When was the last time you visited the zoo or saw the sights locally? Why wait for company ? I know one couple who schedule mini-stay-cations every few months. Variety is the spice of life!

You might be surprised by the options when horrible traffic leads to creative hotel offers.
