Travel With Kids: Holmes County

We spent the last four days in rural Ohio [specifically, Holmes County]. At first, we were a little dismayed by the winding roads. There wasn't a Target, Starbucks, fuel station, or freeway in sight. (We didn't even have a cell phone signal for most of our trip!).   When we pulled into Whispering Hills RV Park, […]

Travel With Kids: Lancaster County

There are many vacation spots that are good for families with older children, but not all of them are good for toddlers & preschoolers. Lancaster County, however, is the perfect destination for a family of wee ones. Even the tiniest of babies will feel quite at home in this delightful patch of Amish country with […]

Travel With Kids: Hershey

Pop Quiz: Do you know where the city of Hershey is? Pennsylvania, of course! Amidst rolling farm country is the corporate headquarters and tour area for the chocolate brand. We stopped in at Hershey's Chocolate World for a free ride that covers the basics of chocolate-making (with free chocolate samples at the end). If you're […]

not a new yorker

New York is one-of-a-kind. It has a flavor like no other. Rising skyscrapers. Dazzling advertisements. Honk-to-honk taxis and cars, rubbing shoulders in the steamy streets - like the people on the sidewalks. Yesterday, we drove into the city in a minivan with friends from Jersey. They navigated the streets like pros, swaying between buses and […]

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 […]
