Travel With Kids: Rapid City

"We could easily stay here a whole week," Tim said as we drove back after a full day of spectacular outdoor sightseeing. I nodded my head in weary, happy agreement. Mount Rushmore was positively majestic. We walked along the President's Trail, took photos, and awed at the handiwork of the artist.   Afterward, we took […]

Travel With Kids: Rochester

Rochester, Minnesota is a city that surprised me. I expected a tiny town with nothing to do...but found an active place with a peppy, modern downtown. The heartbeat of this Minnesota city (which is just 1.5 hours south of Minneapolis) is the Mayo Clinic, a not-for-profit medical group and medical research group. Mayo Clinic Rochester […]

Travel With Kids: Cincinnati

Isn't it nice when something exceeds your expectations? That's how Cincinnati was for us.   We pulled into the Winton Woods Campground and were immediately impressed. The well-manicured campground is part of the larger Winton Woods county park, which includes wide biking/walking trails, several playgrounds, a lake for fishing & boating, AND a splash park […]

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 […]
