Some of the most well-known art depicting adventure in the United States is the painted pictures by Fredrick S. Dellenbaugh, when he spent the summer of 1903 painting Zion Canyon. These paintings were exhibited at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair and spectators could not believe that such a place really existed.
Today, finding new and exciting locations are fingertips away. We log into our Facebook and Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest and can plan a 36-hour getaway without contacting a travel agency or spending too much time doing research on our own. Maps and guidebooks are mundane and not up-to-date. Most travelers now turn to friends, coworkers and newsfeeds to help compile the most up to date information and knowledge of a certain location. A survey that Adweek conducted states that 52% of Facebook users can imagine themselves on vacation when scrolling through Facebook, even when there is not a trip being planned at the moment.
We all work hard and deserve some down time and fun. Many of us on social media look to see what our friends and neighbors are doing to discover locations that are within a four-hour driving distance from home that won’t break the bank. With the summer holidays quickly approaching check, out you’re our social media accounts, see where friends and colleagues are going. Shorter trips that keep you closer to home but get you out of the everyday monotony is actually worth the time. Get out, enjoy yourself. You deserve it!
