You may need to bundle the kids up to send them off to school, but when the weekend comes, get ready to grab the swimsuits, goggles and beach towels. It’s time to splash, slide and get wet at an indoor waterpark hotel, like Caribbean Cove Hotel & Waterpark in Indianapolis or Falls Avenue Resort in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Whether you […]

Competitours: A Unique Way to Experience Europe as a Family

As my kids get older, I find myself looking for more travel adventures that go beyond a week’s stay at the beach (though a week’s stay at the beach sounds pretty good right about now as I’m looking at a temp of 22 degrees outside at this moment). Last summer’s cross-country road trip was a start, but what’s next? It […]

10 Fun Things to Do with Kids in Dodge City, KS

I’d been wanting to explore an Old West town for some time. I even included a visit to Wild West Country as the One Thing You Must Do with Kids in Every U.S. State for Kansas, so naturally I was eager to check out Dodge City as the kids and I drove from Colorado to Missouri over the summer. If you […]

Los Angeles by Bus: The Only Way to See the Sights as a Family

Los Angeles is a big town, like really big. There’s a lot to see, and unless you really want to sit in LA’s infamous traffic as you go from place to place, a sightseeing tour is a must-do.

Exploring with Kids: 36 Hours in San Jose

In July, the kids and I had the opportunity to explore San Jose, CA. While I’d been to San Francisco a number of times, this was my first time in San Jose. Of course, there are a lot of tech companies in the San Jose area, like Google and Nintendo, but I had no idea what to do with kids. […]
