St. Petersburg, Florida – Saying hello to Dali and Strolling the Sunken Gardens

St. Petersburg, Florida – Saying hello to Dali and Strolling the Sunken Gardens

September 15, 2011 No Comments If you can tear yourself away from the beautiful gulf coast beach of St. Petersburg long enough to head into town, you’ll find old-school tourist attractions, a collection of interesting restaurants and cafes, and the Dali Museum, the only major collection of surrealist artist Salvador Dali’s work outside of Spain. Surprised to see a stellar ...

Blue Ridge Parkway Road Trip Between Roanoke & Abingdon, VI

September 5, 2011 No Comments Virginia is a state of great contrasts: it houses upscale bedroom communities that serve the Washington, D.C. metropolis, bucolic horse farms, antique shops, George Washington’s Mount Vernon home, and — the Blue Ridge Mountains. We started to explore the Blue Ridge region visiting friends in Roanoke, with a family pleasing visit to the Taubman Museum ...

Criss Angel Believe: Is Las Vegas’ Bizarre Magician Right for Kids?

August 28, 2011 No Comments When Dad and I were in Las Vegas this summer, seeing “Believe” was at the top of my must-do list. I’m a huge fan of Criss Angel’s Mindfreak TV show, and I knew I had to see him perform live. We actually had tickets to the original “Believe” opening in 2008, but production delays pushed ...

Charleston, South Carolina: Genteel Family Fun

August 12, 2011 No Comments Charleston, South Carolina is a genteel city. Polite. Adults hold the door for you and your children’s strollers, and hotel employees pat your child on the head. If you like history, historic recreations of river boat steamers, horse drawn carriage rides, a beautiful water front city, a lovely nearby beach, and plenty of courtesy, then ...

The Bird Cage Theater: A True Time Capsule of the Old West

August 7, 2011 No Comments Tombstone, Arizona is a lot of fun. Both professional reenactors and local residents wander the streets in full Wild West regalia, joining the tourists at the Crystal Palace for a cold beer or simply relaxing on a bench watching people pass by. Historic tours and staged gunfights bring the feeling of the Old West to ...

Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains

August 5, 2011 No Comments What’s sweet as fudge, gooey as cotton candy, has as many tourists as Disneyland, is on the edge of a major national park, and pretty far off a major highway? Why that would be Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Ringed by the Le Conte and Sugarland Mountains, the Big Ride and Grape Ridge, Gatlinburg is in a lush, ...

Sonoma, California: An Emphasis on Family

August 5, 2011 No Comments Sonoma, California is near Napa, California.  And as such, it’s home to lovely wineries and pretty villages, rich forests, rolling hills, and pleasant cafes. However, what makes Sonoma different than Napa is its emphasis on nature rather than the wine culture, its family-oriented restaurants and activities, and a more laid back, and slightly less expensive ...

 

Florida Family Road trip – Beaches North of Fort Lauderdale

Florida Family Road trip – Beaches North of Fort Lauderdale

August 3, 2011 No Comments We love the beach. So when I suggested a simple driving tour of Florida, heading north from Fort Lauderdale featuring a succession of beach days, my kids were as excited to check out the sand and sea as I was. We’d heard from friends that the beaches are wide, the sand soft, the water warm, ...

Fredericksburg Texas – Touring Hill Country

August 2, 2011 No Comments Is it hokey? Or is it history? It’s hard to tell at first glance in Fredericksburg, Texas, at least when you come for Oktoberfest as we did a year ago. This October festival means that Main Street, with its nineteenth century houses is bedecked with Texas state flags and German ones. It means rowdy polka ...

Southern Family Comfort in Savannah, Georgia

July 30, 2011 No Comments We love the South-east in the summer.  Not everyone does of course, it’s humid, it’s hot, and the beautiful beaches that offer a cooling breeze and comfortable water can be crowded. But those are small caveats to what we think is a wonderful season for exploring a region of the U.S. as different from our ...
