    Just because the holidays — and the accompanying travel — are on the horizon doesn't mean you can't sneak away for some low-key exploring. (And that "me time" doesn't need to cost a fortune, either.) To prove it, we've pulled together to-do lists for three day-trip-worthy cities: Richmond, Charlottesville, and Morgantown. Each one is pleasantly packed with things to enjoy, from dining and shopping to good old-fashioned sightseeing. Sip craft cider, browse stellar boutiques, and let your mind wander in a planetarium. Why wait? It's not quite the most wonderful time of the year just yet, so hit the road and discover these gems.
