Fall trips on a single tankful of gas all across the nation.
Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) October 12, 2010
A Day’s Outing, a free, online travel search tool for helping users find nearby day trips, vacation side trips and weekend getaways, offers local events for fall trips on a single tankful of gas all across the nation. It’s easy for families, couples and friends to plan a perfect trip without the expense of an overnight hotel stay. With fall in full swing and hundreds of thousands of outings to explore all across the country, A Day’s Outing helps people plan the perfect day trip that can be right around the corner or just a few hours away. Launched last year in the mid-Atlantic, A Day’s Outing expanded its service nationwide over the summer. The company also recently introduced an iPhone App for users to conveniently find local events and nearby things-to-do when they are out and about.
While a long vacation may not be possible at this time of year, a great day or weekend trip on only one tankful of gas certainly can be. Many times many activities, historical points of interest, museums, gardens, and other hidden treasures are located right in one’s own backyard, but are left undiscovered. With A Day’s Outing, users are matched to their perfect outing by their specific starting location, personal interests, preferred driving distance and date of travel. A Day’s Outing helps people plan a short-distance trip by revealing nearby events, destinations and great day trip activities.
How Far Can One Go on One Tank of Gas?
Of course, how far one can go on a single thankful of gas varies on the size of a car’s tank and its gas mileage, but with so many day trips presented by A Day’s Outing, it’s easy to find a great fall day trip. With A Day’s Outing, it’s simple to select the outing that you are interested in, view the important details and then print those details of the outing with a map to carry along for the trip.
