Get Physical: Wander Around a Museum

The unpredictable rain showers of April can disrupt well laid plans for all sorts of physical activities. One great way to get out and have an adventure during inclement weather is wander around a museum. Any kind of museum will do – art, history, science, or even an aquarium.

Walking around a museum is not the most strenuous of activity, but it will get you off the couch and out into the world. It is a great way to spend time with your honey, or with your entire family. Plus, chasing a wild child through the halls of a museum will certainly get your heart rate up; this I know from experience. Strolling for a couple of hours is good for your system and skip the elevator at the museum and take the stairs for a little extra fitness kick. Don't forget to wear your pedometer so you can see how many steps you added to your day. I also advise you to bring your own water and snacks. The restaurants at many museums offer many tempting treats, but stick to a handful of nuts to re-energize yourself before tackling the Impressionist collection or the exhibit on the Civil War.

Not sure what you are interested in viewing, check out this list of museums by state.
