Getting out of your usual surrounds -- even if you're just hopping a water taxi to a different neighborhood -- can be a nice change of pace for not a lot of money.

Getting out of your usual surrounds -- even if you're just hopping a water taxi to a different neighborhood -- can be a nice change of pace for not a lot of money.

Sometimes we all need a change of pace. Vacations are good for that, but they can cost money and time. This week on “Going Places,”  KNKX travel expert Matthew Brumley talks about quick, local, affordable getaways.

We’re going to hold off on listing a bunch of possible destinations here, because so many places in our area have something to offer.

Instead, we want to hear your experiences. What places in our region have you been that offered a nice change of pace from your daily life? What made it special?

Leave your thoughts in the comments below or send an email to eronco@knkx.org. We might include some of your ideas in a future segment.
