If you like road trips and exploring small town U.S.A. you are in the right place.

www.thetravelingmug.comDay trips and travel throughout the Midwest region are the focus here at The Traveling Mug. Exploring new places, trying new things, and partaking of delicious food and drink are all on the agenda.

I do a lot of solo travel, but most of the destinations, travel info and tips are family friendly and also apply if you are traveling as a family, as a couple, or with friends.

www.thetravelingmug.comIf you are a coffee lover, you get bonus points! There’s usually at least one fabulous coffee shop in every small town, and I aim to find it! Hence the name… The Traveling Mug. Read more about that here.

What You Can Expect

On this blog and in my emails (sign up here) you’ll find interesting, entertaining and helpful information on fun and affordable road trips throughout the Midwest (and occasionally other charming locations).

Most travel info is budget friendly. There is always an occasion to splurge, but for the most part, I travel pretty low cost.

www.thetraveling.mug.comI enjoy the simpler things in life. I love the outdoors and nature so I write about those things often. Small town destinations are usually family friendly too. You are NOT going to find out about the hottest nightclubs in Vegas here. Although, I do love a good cocktail, so you may find some bar and grill or drink recommendations.

This is a fairly new site and I’m adding and updating info almost daily. Be sure to sign up for my email updates here so you won’t miss anything.
