10 Best Indoor Waterpark Hotels

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.

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 […]

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 […]

5 LEGO Exhibits for LEGO-Maniacs in Your Family

We took the kids to see The LEGO Movie over the weekend and I loved everything about the movie, except maybe the $9.50 child’s matinee ticket price (ouch). The plot was cute. I love Chris Pratt who voiced the lead character, Emmet. And of course, I can’t get enough of this song. If you want more, more, more LEGO after […]

Children’s museums across the country have really gotten into the spirit of the games, and many are offering fun Olympics-themed events.

7 Fun Fruit Festivals to Enjoy this Summer

One of the best parts of summer is the fresh produce, so why not get out and enjoy the popular family festivals devoted to some of the summer favorites, like cherries, peaches and blueberries.
