The three best parts of a roadtrip are planning it, taking it, and remembering it afterward. Actually, given how endless hours on the road can feel to your brain and your backside, maybe we can promote the "planning" and "remembering" parts above the actual "taking" the roadtrip itself.
So let's celebrate the past summer roadtrip season by remembering some of the best trip reports posted to the Theme Park Insider Discussion Forum over the past couple months. If you've not visited the forum, please do. Anyone can read it, and you can post and respond simply by registering with the site. (It's free and takes only a moment.)
AJ Hummel described what sounded like the roadtrip of the summer in his nine-part The Keystone, Timbers, and Vengeance Tour epic. These reports detail a journey to several top theme parks across the Midwest, along with trips to some other popular tourist destinations from the Great Lakes to the mid-Atlantic region.
Not enough for you? Russell Meyer also checked in this summer with Is Minneapolis a Theme Park Destination?, which details some places to visit in the upper Midwest that might be of interest to theme park fans.
If you're beginning to think about your vacation destinations for 2019, reading trip reports can give you some great first-person insights about potential places to visit. And it's not just from the reports themselves. The comments to trip reports often include some great first-person advice about visiting, as well.
In fact, one of the things I am most proud about Theme Park Insider is the high quality of the comments on our blog and discussion posts. You folks are the best at providing smart, sharp, and funny comments that often are more useful than the original posts themselves. (At least they are when I'm the original poster!)
Which parks and destinations are you thinking about visiting in 2019?
