Road Tripping through Wales

Hiring a car to road trip through Wales is a great idea for a romantic rendezvous or a fun family trip. There are many free family attractions in Wales and this makes it easy to take a relatively inexpensive vacation, especially if one hires a car for the excursion.

A great place to begin is in Cardiff. Every summer Cardiff is host to a summer festival that features jousting, open air theater, a carnival, a classic car and boat rally, and more. There are many free events for people of any age and it makes for a great adventure.

Some people may know that Wales is home to over 400 castles. One of the finest castles to visit is Dryslwyn Castle in Carmarthenshire. The lovely hilltop castle that exists today as majestic ruins make for a spectacular photo moment.

Dinefwr Castle is nearby and was once the home of powerful lords who were very influential in government. The Dinefwr attractions even feature a child play area and people can speak to servants about their daily tasks. The landscaping is beautifully done and exhibits 18th century design principles.

Cardigan Bay is another must-see location. It’s a great place for spotting dolphins, seals, porpoises, whales and even sharks. The air is great and it’s a great place in which to convene with nature.

Nearby, one can also have fun doing geocaching. If you have a phone that features GPS, you can search for buried treasures. In the Brecon Beacons National Park there are over 100 treasures for you to find. So start looking!

Margam Country Park is stately and ornate. The magnificent castle set in 1000 acres features an ornamental garden, a deer park, adventure playgrounds and more. It’s a great place in which to spend a day and see the luxurious beauty that this attraction has to offer.

Llanddwyn Island is the kind of place that one goes to and feels inspired to write nature poetry. It is amazing and this magical island features nature trails and a pathway to reach a very old light house and the ruins of a chapel. Make sure to bring the cameras to this Island because you’ll be leaving with a lot of special photos.

Last of all, there are seven National Museums that are spread out around stately Wales and they are all free. Visitors can view immense collections that exhibit Welsh history and culture and speak to Welsh’s ancient Roman heritage.

All in all, Welsh is an amazing country to visit and a great way to do so is by hiring a car and starting off on an amazing adventure.
