Top 10 Stops to Make in Denver with Kids

Colorado is a great place to explore with kids. There’s great skiing in the winter, fantastic hiking in the summer. It’s a real nature lover’s paradise. I’ve been all over the state, from Grand Junction to Estes Park to Colorado Springs. Over the summer, my kids and I spent a few days in Denver and we can’t recommend the Mile […]

10 Things You’ve Got to Do at the Mall of America

The Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota (just outside Minneapolis) is seriously so much fun. I’ve been there twice now and didn’t have enough time to explore all that is the Mall of America either time. There’s just too much stuff to do there. Clearly I must go back a third time. My kids and I went to the Mall […]

School’s Out: Take the Kids to Learn About Golf

School’s out – or nearly out (my kids still have another week) – for a lot of kids, so now is the time to start getting serious about what to do this summer to keep busy. For me, it won’t do to have my kids glued to their iPads every day. As much as I can, I try to get […]

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 […]

What to Do in Orlando (Besides Walt Disney World)

This may sound crazy, but you can go to Orlando and not go to Walt Disney World. There’s so much to do – some things you didn’t even realize you could do – that you may not even find time for Mickey Mouse. From zipline adventures to airboat rides to stand-up paddleboarding, even professional football, you won’t be wondering what […]

10 Stops to Make on a Vermont Road Trip

For such a small state, there’s a lot to see and do in Vermont. Make your own teddy bear at Vermont Teddy Bear Company, sample some of the best apple cider donuts in the country at Cold Hollow Cider Mill or hike to the Stowe Pinnacle Summit for incredible views of the Green Mountains. And don’t forget to stop in […]

Going Solo: Driving the Extraterrestrial Highway in Nevada

As a mother of four, I know that sometimes us moms need a break – a break from carpools, a break from school lunches, a break from laundry. We just need to get away to relax and recharge in order to be an even better mom when we return home. I can’t say I get a chance to explore on […]
