The first was a road trip with two girl friends to "Stampaway", a one-day vendor expo in CIncinnati. Spent way too much money and was exhausted when we returned (all that walking, shopping on concrete floors --- my feet were killing me within an hour or two!) but had a lot of fun anyway. If you are a crafter (mixed media, scrapbookeing, paper crafting, etc.), such expos are a great way to spend a day (and lots of your pocket money too!).
The second was a charter group tour set up by the local public television station to Stratford, Ornatior, to atend two plays at Festival. PLays were wonderful, the free lecture was even better, but the bus trip was MOST uncomfortable. I came back with a cold/cough which I can't seem to kick. Tickets to the plays are pricey but, when bundled with teh cost of the cahrter bus adn the one-night stay in a moderately good hotel, I think it's a doable two day getaway. I hightly reoommend the Festival.
