The Beginning

I adore jaunting about on little day trips, researching restaurants to try out, and finding must-see sites. I also enjoy doing all of this while not breaking the bank! So for years I’ve found myself on-line, planning a day excursion, and then coercing a friend or my hubby to tag along with me. Needless to say, we travelers always had a ball!

While on a day trip last year, my travel buddy planted a dangerous seed in my head:  to begin my own blog. A blog for traveling on a budget peppered with the thousands of photos I’ve taken (which are now slowing down my computer like you wouldn’t believe). Hence, the inception of this website!

Living in Northern Virginia (outside D.C.) affords a plethora of opportunities for exploration. It also is a great place to spend money (if you have it, that is). My quest is to find experiences:  whether that means a walking tour of a historic site paired with a trendy restaurant, a scenic country drive and an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, or a ride on the metro to the newest museum. Perhaps you’re traveling to the area, or live here, and are considering some quality adventures. Welcome to you, fearless traveler!

On the road again,

Ms. Thrifty
