From the Sea to the River – More, Marvelous Oregon

From the Sea to the River – More, Marvelous Oregon

September 13, 2010 No Comments Our family left the coastal area of Oregon and the beautiful ocean beaches for the river – the Columbia River Gorge.  Make sure to read about the start of our family fun Oregon Coast excursion as well as Part 2 in Southern Oregon.  Just as magnificent in its own way as the sea, the wide windy river is vast and ...

Family Fun on the Oregon Coast

September 10, 2010 2 Comments Beaches strewn with climbable driftwood… square topped rocks called sea stacks morphing out of the morning waves… caves and coves for your little pirates to explore… and lighthouses! That’s the southern Oregon coast near Yachats. The quickest route in is to fly into Portland and drive to the sea in under five hours; our recent trip ...

“Down the Shore” in Cape May, New Jersey

September 10, 2010 2 Comments I may be a California girl now, but my heart will always belong to the Jersey shore.      From the time my eldest son Tristan was a baby, traveling to the southernmost tip of New Jersey for our annual family beach vacation has been a tradition that we never missed–until this summer, since we moved across ...

Regent Seven Seas Alaskan Cruise Vacation

September 7, 2010 2 Comments Last month I found out through my mother that Joe and Amy (my aunt and uncle), were about to embark on an extravagant 7 day trip to Alaska.  We were on the phone when she mentioned it, and I was absolutely intrigued!

Las Vegas, for Families too!

September 7, 2010 1 Comment There’s talk that Las Vegas is revamping itself and becoming a family vacation destination.  Having taken two trips to Las Vegas in one year—one with a family in tow, the other as a respite from said family (or at least the younger contingent of it)—I can safely say that Las Vegas is a wonderful family ...

Universal Orlando: Not Just for Thrill-Seeking Teens

September 7, 2010 1 Comment Universal Orlando opened in 1990 with just one park — Universal Studios Florida. The second gated theme park, Islands of Adventure, opened in 1999.

Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia: History Made Fun

September 6, 2010 3 Comments It would be easy to dismiss Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia as just another roadside attraction. Seemingly plopped down in the middle of a tourist area with a Ripley’s Museum on one side and a Busch Gardens on the other, Colonial Williamsburg could seem like yet another way to part you from your money.

This was the first time we avoided hotels and opted for renting a luxury home with a staff that included butler and chef services. Our daughter, and only child at the time, was 7 months. We traveled and stayed with my parents, ...

Universal Studios Hollywood

September 4, 2010 1 Comment My family and I feel very fortunate to live in the vacation paradise known as Southern California. Famous beaches, movie stars, incredible restaurants, unbeatable weather–what’s not to love? Everyone wants to visit us. And I know that every time I get a visit from family, friends, or other out-of-towners, I will be headed for another ...
