I’m always on the lookout for a unique adventure, which is why I was really excited to learn about 3 unique ways that we could make our golf game more physical at Shawnee Lookout Park. Shawnee Lookout Park is one of the Great Parks of Hamilton County that is made up of 2430 acres that include nature trails, a playground, historical sites, golf course, and amazing views of Great Miami Valley and the Ohio River.
We’ve driven the popular Cades Cove 11 mile loop many times during visits to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The scenic curvy road that leads to Cades Cove is filled with gorgeous imagery of mountains and streams during the 13.1 mile drive. Depending on the time of year, traffic to the park, and how many times you stop for pictures or animal sightings, the drive to Cades Cove could take you between 40 minutes-1hr+ to reach.
I met Karen several years ago as the sponsor of a program that I’m a part of that helps encourage middle and high school students to make good choices. Over the years we have become friends, and I’ve observed her passion for health through CrossFit continue to grow. As someone who prided themselves on never trying CrossFit, I’ve always appreciated that people were really into it… from a distance.
When Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen invited me to partner with them and help recognize, share and reward goodness this year, Karen was the 1st person that came to mind. They also want you to share stories and nominate inspirational people, like Karen, to be rewarded for doing great things in your community, too!
When I discovered a few images of the Underground Mega Bike Park in Louisville, Kentucky on social media, I knew that I had to try it for myself.
Traverse City, Michigan is a very popular destination in the summer for its beautiful water, weather, and a love of all things cherry themed or flavored, as the Cherry Capital of the World…..but you don’t have to wait until summer to experience adventure in Northern Michigan! I discovered why Crystal Mountain is a such a popular “snowcation” destination for winter fun too.
I have tried the Olympics sport of curling several times during a “Learn to Curl” class.
Each time I LOVED it! Why, you ask?
Looking for a gift that keeps on giving?
Why don’t you give someone the gift of adventure instead?
Here are a few reasons why you should consider giving an experience gift instead of a physical one.
When I visit a city, I seek out locations and experiences that are unique, that I can’t replicate anywhere else. I discovered that Columbus, Ohio has a lot to offer when it comes to connecting with nature through outdoor adventure. You can choose your own outdoor adventure in an urban setting, a scenic park, or the woods.
So did I find anything unique, that I couldn’t replicate anywhere else, in Columbus? YES, and there is a good chance that you will want to add these adventures to your list too!
I’m surrounded in a house of family members who LOVE and speak football… and I don’t understand the language. My husband LOVES all football from Thursday- Monday night. My boys have both played football and I still don’t really understand what’s going on. I call it a success when I can actually identify them on the field. You know they all look alike out there!
I knew that I had to jump on the opportunity to get a football intervention when I was invited to attend Women’s Football 101 in Stillwater, Oklahoma. I even left an event in San Diego and slept overnight on a plane to be there. The women who I met from Visit Stillwater last summer left such a big impression on me that I knew that I didn’t want to miss this event or an opportunity to find out why they were so enthusiastic about their community!
One of the first things that I noticed about Get Air Trampoline Park was the open concept that allows you to move freely throughout the building. Someone had told me about the ninja course over casual conversation and I instantly wanted to see and experience everything in person.
