I'm a creature of habit; I enjoy my same walk .... occasionally I may vary it. Always something new to discover.

Just found this thread....I vary up the routes. I have a 5.5 mile "around the block" and a couple of 3-4.5 mile routes that are also "around the block". I live in a small town in SE Massachusetts with lots a little back roads and I like to take those. During inclement weather, as defined by me, my "path" is in front of my TV. Leslie Sansone and I walk together. When I am on vacation, my path is wherever my legs will take me.

I actually have three different routes.

First is the Full Circuit. It's a 2-mile walk that loops around the neighborhood and I get to see all the pretty houses for sale. It's for when I'm feeling all gung-ho about exercise.

Second is my Figure 8 route. It's my shortest route for those days I just want to go back to bed but need to get up and go despite that. It reminds me that I want to be healthy, and keep my waist. LOL

Third is the Pac Man route. It's a...well...route that looks like Pac Man. It's my favorite on days I'm in between.

All of them are in the neighborhood, I might branch out when I have more time to explore walking areas, but for now, I love the routes I have.

I usually walk around my neighborhood, which is pretty scenic with lots of landscaping. When I get bored with that, there are trails nearby. And if I get bored with that, there's a park not far where I can walk laps around the perimeter of it (obviously not a very large park). I usually try to avoid using the car, but I have done that to take me to a new scenic trail. I live in the Washington, DC area so it's always nice to walk along the Potomac River.

Is there a particular path or scenic area you walk?
