Day Trips intro image

We all need a break every now and then.

In my experience, one of the best types of break is the one I take with some friends and an impromptu trip. Maybe it's not any further than the thrift store and a coffee shop in town we haven't tried yet. Maybe it's a full day spent in Charleston or a park we haven't hiked yet.

Wherever the trip takes us, I'm forced to think about what's happening in the moment and not on the dozen things stressing me out. It's easy to get trapped in what I "should" be doing and forget to make time for the things I want to be doing.

It's about the journey as much as the destination, but you can't start a journey without knowing where you're headed.

If you need ideas about where to set a destination for a trip of your own, look no further. From historical locations with rich history to the best spots to hang out as you follow your favorite Gamecock teams to play their SEC rivals, The Daily Gamecock has you covered.

May your trip leave you feeling refreshed — and best of luck avoiding the inevitable potholes.
