From the Road: Virginia to Texas (Week One)

It’s hard to believe that we’ve already been on the road for one week and have driven more than 1,600 miles. As I type this, we’re in San Antonio after having spent a couple of days in Galveston. The kids are starting to enjoy checking out a new city every couple of days. I wish they’d put their iPads down […]

Postcards from…Chattanooga

Look for little red bird houses, like this one, all over Rock City.

We’re on our way to Texas in the morning, but I wanted to put up a quick post to share some of our photos from Chattanooga. We only had a day to explore this lovely town in Tennessee, but we made the most of it at Rock City and Ruby Falls. I also wanted to check out the Incline Railway […]

I’ve written about Pigeon Forge several times, both for Travel Channel.com and here on Kidventurous, and finally I had a chance to take my kids over the weekend as part of our cross-country road trip. Driving down Parkway, the main drag in Pigeon Forge, was admittedly overwhelming. There are so many things to do, from musical shows to go-karts to […]

20 Most Instagram-Worthy Roadside Attractions

There’s just something about road trips and stopping to take photos at fun and quirky roadside attractions, like Cadillac Ranch in Texas and Foamhenge in Virginia. One of my personal favorites is South of the Border, a road stop in South Carolina. You’ll see colorful billboards, like “Pedro’s Weather Report: Chili Today, Hot Tamale!,” for miles and miles (and miles). If […]

We’re going to San Antonio this summer as part of our cross-country road trip. I’ve never been before, and really, I don’t know much about San Antonio beyond the scene from Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure when Pee-Wee takes a tour of The Alamo to see the basement and find his bicycle. I know, pretty sad, right? So, I’ve been doing a […]

10 Great KOA Campgrounds for Kids

I’ve mentioned several times that I am decidedly not a camper, at least not a “pitch your own tent” kind of camper. I don’t know how to pitch a tent, at least not yet, and I don’t own a sleeping bag. However, I do love a good campground. Three years, ago, we stayed in deluxe cabins at the Mystic KOA […]

Sleep in a Teepee: 8 Places to Do Just That

teepee

I really, really want to stay in a teepee during our road trip this summer. I know, that sounds random. But, seriously, how fun would that be? Unfortunately, that hasn’t worked out, at least not yet. Most teepees are better suited for a family of four, and those that do sleep five or six aren’t on our route. However, sleeping […]

Take a look at 15 fun and fantastic things to do in Chattanooga, many of which we hope to do during our short stay in June. 1. […]

10 Tulip Gardens & Festivals to Visit with Kids

I love tulips. I really, really wanted to go to the Netherlands this year to see the tulips, but given my recent career switch into travel PR, it just wasn’t in the cards. Fortunately, I found the next best thing about 25 minutes from my house: Burnside Farms. While not the Keukenhof, there were rows and rows of tulips of all […]
