There are varying sentiments about what it means to “get outside” during your next getaway. For some, it’s exploring mountain ranges and other natural wonders that they can’t get in their home city. For others, getting outside can be as simple as enjoying a cup of piping hot morning coffee on the porch; because getting outside doesn’t always have to be exploratory or strenuous!
