Competitours: An “Amazing Race” Style Vacation

If you’ve yet to finish planning out your summer (yes, I realize it’s only March), then I have an idea for you. It’s more fun than a week at the same beach you’ve been going to year after year and I can guarantee it’s something your kids will be talking about with their friends for years to come. As a […]

10 Things to Do in Fort Worth with Kids

Many people know Fort Worth, Texas simply as part of the name of an airport (as in DFW, Dallas-Fort Worth). However, just west of Dallas, Fort Worth has its own distinct personality and is well worth a visit on your own or with kids. I was in Fort Worth recently for the Cowtown Half Marathon and had the opportunity to […]

‘Frozen’ Norway: 7 Places to Visit as a Family

It may be more than three years since the release of the movie Frozen, but Frozen fever is still alive and well. In fact, I was recently at Walt Disney World and the new “Frozen Ever After” ride at Epcot is one of the most popular (as in, book your FastPass+ now). This new ride replaced “Maelstrom” in Norway. Still the same […]

Quebec City: To Take the Kids or Not Take the Kids?

I’ll be honest, I probably would not take my kids back to Quebec City. We spent a few days there over the summer during our three-week road trip. I had wanted to visit Quebec City for quite some time and we were going to be in town over Canada Day. I was very excited. I will tell you that Quebec […]

Grand Junction: Colorado’s Best-Kept Secret

This past week, I had the opportunity to explore Grand Junction, Colorado. Living on the east coast, I love going out west. Everything is different, the climate, the culture, the landscape. And I especially love Colorado. Just over a year ago, the kids and I explored Steamboat Springs and Estes Park as part of our great big cross-country road trip. I […]

10 Things to Do in Stowe, VT with Kids

While many families flock to Stowe, Vermont for skiing and snow tubing, there’s so much to do in the area when the weather is warm, like hiking, kayaking and fishing. Over the summer, we spent time in Vermont as part of a three-week northeast road trip and we were not disappointed by the Green Mountain State. We stayed in a […]

Why You & Your Kids Will Love the Great Pumpkin Fest

My kids, especially my two younger ones, are not much for zombies and skeletons. So, of course, we loved that Kings Dominion’s Great Pumpkin Fest near Richmond, VA is all about painting pumpkins, costume parades, trick-or-treating and interactive shows. We had the opportunity to check out the second annual Great Pumpkin Fest over the weekend and we were not disappointed. […]

10 Things You Should Know About Niagara Falls

I’d been eager to go to Niagara Falls for some time. I don’t exactly know why. It’s just one of those places I had stuck in mind. I meant to road trip up to Niagara Falls with the kids over the summer, but just ran out of time. You know how that goes. So, the school year started and Niagara […]

Visiting Gulf County, Florida with Kids (+ Giveaway)

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gulf County Florida. All opinions are 100% mine. We love to take the kids to Florida. It’s an easy flight from where we live (just outside Washington, DC) and there’s so much to do, especially when it starts to cool up north. Even in November, you can go shelling […]
