Bottle Tree Ranch and a Day in the Mojave

Bottle Tree Ranch and a Day in the Mojave

April 6, 2013 No Comments Less than two hours from Los Angeles and a world away, kids of all ages and their parents will love the sparkling multi-colored forest awaiting them just off Route 66 near Victorville. This is a great stop on a drive heading in or out of Las Vegas, but it makes a wonderful day trip. That ...

 

Summer Solstice Long Days in Iceland

Summer Solstice Long Days in Iceland

February 14, 2013 No Comments Many families planning an international trip stick with the tried and true: the changing of the guard in Buckingham Palace, the Eiffel tower and hot chocolate in Paris. Yes, I have stories of those adventures too, but what about something a little more internationally unusual? We chose Iceland, landing in Reykjavik in the season of ...

Capitol Reef National Park, Utah

February 5, 2013 No Comments This park is the unsung hero of Utah’s justifiably popular national parks system. While Zion and Bryce several hours to the west bear the brunt of visitor travel, and Arches is photographed everywhere and well known, Capitol Reef often gathers blank stares, or the misconception that is must be underwater somewhere. My kids ranked Capitol ...

Family Road Trip in Utah

January 21, 2013 No Comments One of my favorite states to explore is Utah. My family and I have taken many trips around the state, from the red arches of Arches National Park, the stunning canyons of the aptly named Canyonlands, Salt Lake City, Park City, well, the list goes on. Driving distances collapse when they’re broken up by one ...

A Memorable Visit to 5 National Parks in Arizona, Nevada and Utah

December 26, 2012 No Comments Circling the southwest’s national park corridor from the edges of Arizona and Nevada throughout Southern Utah is one of my favorite trips. Some travel sites will recommend you take up to twenty-one days for this itinerary, and some of you reading this will think that it’s too much to see and do in such a ...

 

The Dreamscape of Arches National Park, Utah

The Dreamscape of Arches National Park, Utah

November 21, 2012 No Comments We were looking for double arch. I was told that’s where Indiana Jones stood as a child in film number three. I confess, all I can remember from the series is Harrison Ford and the massive boulder hurtling down after him, which I know didn’t happen in Arches National Park.  I also vaguely remember a ...

Riviera Resort in Palm Springs – Desert Delights

November 16, 2012 No Comments My kids have always talked about the California desert as if it was a place even more exotic than it is – as if it were the sands of Arabia, and Aladin would soon be sailing a magic carpet over their heads. So a recent trip to the Rat Pack meets fairy tale wonders of ...

 

A Puerto Rico Family Vacation

A Puerto Rico Family Vacation

June 20, 2012 No Comments Looking for an island vacation that you and your family will love as much as Hawaii, but want something completely different? Try Puerto Rico. As a U.S. commonwealth, you won’t need a passport, prices are reasonable, and it’s an easy flight two hours out of Miami.  Best of all along with beautiful beaches and plenty ...

Favorite Family Friendly Bed and Breakfasts on the West Coast

June 10, 2012 No Comments Many families chose chain motels or hotels for a vacation. The reason: a known quantity, size of the room, amenities such as a pool or video games for the kids, portable cribs for the smallest travelers. Another reason is: sure, we’d love to stay at a bed and breakfast, but most of them don’t welcome ...

Mojave National Preserve – Family Fun off the Grid

June 7, 2012 1 Comment We’re intrepid desert explorers. In fact, I was off-roading in Death Valley when I was pregnant with my daughter, and perhaps it was that experience that led to a life long love of California desert views and trips with expanses of sand and parades of cactus included. The Road Untraveled – Mojave National Preserve One ...
