Grand Bend in the Fall:
I was having an awful day and decided to go for a drive. I ended up in a deserted town with 2 amazing girlfriends. There were no people, no city hustle, just the sounds of birds and the lake crashing. I have to admit, this might not be an epic adventure or something worth writing about, but it was well worth the trip. It was a peace of mind that I really needed.
My suggestion to the rest of you:
Check out a local beach off season. Go in the fall, in the winter, or even in the spring. It gets your mind off life and the real world for just a few hours.
