A new year brings great promise and possibility! It gives us a chance to regroup, reflect and make goals for ourselves and our future. Too often, our jobs and responsibilities overshadow our need to enjoy the lives that we have been given. "Live a little" is not just a saying... it should be a goal. Life is too short to just go through the motions.
We may not all live life in the fast lane, but here are 5 local attractions to get the adrenaline going.
