Longing for a break, but don’t have the time to take a week off right now? Here’s a way to travel to distant lands—and even go back in time—and it’s all within a short drive of your home.
We recently visited the New York Renaissance Faire (check out www.renfaire.com/Sites to find the one in your area), which is a fun way to spend the day with family and friends and shake up your routine.
Take a step back in time (about 400 years or so—think Shakespeare) and get into the spirit by dressing up in period costume. Don’t have one? No problem. There are plenty of onsite vendors where you can buy clothing, headgear, fantasy pieces, and anything else you need to become a knight, princess, squire, fairy, unicorn, minotaur, or whatever your imagination can come up with.
