This Week’s Topic:

Fall Road Trip Tips 

Just because summer has come to an end doesn’t mean that your road trip adventures need to. I know many people that actually prefer to take their road trips during the fall when it’s cooler and the changing trees add to the experience!

Here are my favorite tips for planning your road trip this fall regardless of how far you are going:

  • Research your location to determine the distance from your home
  • Look into the various route options to get there
  • Don’t forget to check for areas of traffic that you may encounter on your trip so you can plan ahead
  • Fill up that gas tank and know how far you can go before you need to refuel
  • Research various great stopping points along your route whether it is a fun place to grab a bite or an added attraction worth stopping for
  • Make a packing list and check it twice
  • Plan a great music playlist to keep you going
  • Before pulling away, check that you have all the necessities-wallets, keys, luggage, etc.
  • Enjoy the ride and make the most out of every moment of it

This Week’s Spot is:

The Tides Inn, Irvington Virginia

The Tides Inn is an absolutely stunning resort perfectly situated on Carter’s Creek! Besides the beautiful views from every angle of the resort, The Tides Inn also features fantastic restaurants, a marina and boat rentals, outdoor pool, multiple hotel room options, a spa, tennis and much more!

Located in Irvington, Virginia and only an hour and a half drive from the Hampton Roads areas, The Tides Inn is a must visit for locals and area visitors! Every inch of the grounds of the resort is perfection! Whether you are escaping to The Tides Inn to relax, traveling there by boat, just stopping in for dinner or making it a spa weekend, you are sure to enjoy their many amenities!

I cannot say enough amazing things about this place and truly hope you add it to your places to visit list! You won’t be disappointed!
