Travel With Kids: Yosemite National Park

There are some places in the world that sink right into your soul. Yosemite National Park - like Yellowstone National Park - is such a place.

Travel With Kids: California Adventure

There was a time when California Adventure was an afterthought, the "second choice" park after Disneyland. After our most recent trip, however, I can confidently kabosh that perspective. We spent an entire Saturday at the Golden State themed park and were completely mesmerized. The new Buena Vista Street welcomes you in with the class and […]
