Travel With Kids: Fredericksburg/DC

Have you ever taken your kids to the theater? Neither had we - until this past weekend. We stayed at a campground in Fredericksburg and drove up to the Riverside Center Children's Theater for a presentation of "The Adventures of Dr. Doolittle". Housed in a beautiful building with table-style seating, the theater provided lunch bags for […]

Travel With Kids: Richmond

At just over one million residents, Richmond is a very similarly sized city to my hometown (Tucson, AZ). It is big enough to offer culture and commerce without being hustle-and-bustle like the big city. Richmond is a city of history and diversity. We were only there for a few short days so we didn't get […]

Travel With Kids: Williamsburg

This past weekend, we stepped out of 2011 and time-traveled back to the genesis of our country. We began at the Jamestown Settlement - a hands-on living museum that is an excellent choice for small children. Our girls (ages 2 & 4) were able to explore an indian village, climb board ships, try on armor, grind […]

Travel With Kids: Virginia Beach

In all of my twenty-nine years, I had never been to a beach along the Atlantic Ocean. Until this past Wednesday. We drove into Virginia Beach and were greeted by the balmy, intoxicating seaside air. The white shores stretched out for miles, beckoning us. After checking into Holiday Inn & Suites North Beach, we suited […]

Travel With Kids: Fayetteville

Fayetteville is a friendly town - warm and congenial, a small city with a big heart. We spent 6 nights in this not-so-sleepy military mecca. Our favorite highlights? We planted a garden for the Salvation Army. Our hands got dirty. Our feet got bit (by ants!). After an afternoon of work in the North Carolina […]

Travel With Kids: Asheville

Asheville's reputation is nothing short of sparkling. Every time we told someone we were going there, people said, "Oh, you're going to love it!" And we did. The terrain is lovely - there are towering trees and beautiful hiking/running trails in every direction. Aside from volunteering with a number of great organizations, we also toured […]

Travel With Kids: Nashville

I knew I was going to like Nashville even before I got there. It is, after all, the home of country music. I halfway expected to hear my favorite songs playing out of the sky as I walked downtown. Nashville is a place where artists and creatives congregate - waiting for a big break or […]

Travel With Kids: Daytona Beach

Last week, we decided to pull off the interstate and spend two nights near the glittering beaches of Daytona. Shortly after we arrived, it rained. To be more accurate - it poured (which is pretty loud when you're in an RV). We looked out the window and saw people running about with ponchos on. Being […]
