Seward, Alaska: A Quaint Port Town

Seward, Alaska: A Quaint Port Town

October 13, 2010 2 Comments Our Alaska cruise ended in Seward, and we were surprised how many people hopped on the early train to Anchorage to catch a flight home. If you invest the time and money in getting to Alaska, why spend only a week? Dad and I are full-time travelers, so we decided to spend an indefinite period ...

October 13, 2010 1 Comment Cruising is a seemingly ideal vacation, allowing families to relax and recharge. Cruising is a particularly excellent choice for family reunions and large group get-togethers, as cruises truly offer something for everyone.

Getting the Royal Treatment at the Vallarta Palace

October 12, 2010 3 Comments Right off the bat, I was not thrilled. About the idea of traveling to Mexico by myself–or rather, with my three boys (as my husband, who was working, could not come along). It was to be a mini-family reunion with me, my kids, and their grandparents, who were flying out from New Jersey to meet ...

Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina

October 12, 2010 No Comments Experience Thrill Without a Ride World renowned tourist attractions such as the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, Hawaiian beaches, historic Boston, romantic Rome and others become household names thanks to TV documentaries, movies, books and magazine cover stories devoted to each and every aspect  associated with them.

Seeing Stars on a Budget at Griffith Park Observatory

October 11, 2010 No Comments Let’s face it. Financially, times continue to be tough right now for many of us. No one feels the squeeze of economic hardship more than my family and I. What with the move to an expensive urban area, three rapidly-growing boys and two dogs to feed, sometimes a big expensive family vacation just isn’t in ...

 

Sandy San Diego

Sandy San Diego

October 7, 2010 No Comments We like going to the beach in San Diego. It’s not that there’s a lack of beaches in our hometown of Los Angeles, but somehow San Diego’s feel is, well, more beachy. And possibly more pool worthy, too.    We like both the calm bay side waters and soft sandy beach right outside the rooms at ...

Small Town, Good Times in Trinidad California

October 7, 2010 No Comments Trinidad, California is a really small town, and I do mean small, on California‘s northern Humboldt County Coast. How small is it? Actually, with less than three hundred residents it’s the smallest incorporated city in California as well as one of the oldest, and thanks to the curving shore line here, one of the furthest ...

 

Seattle When the Sun Shines

Seattle When the Sun Shines

October 6, 2010 No Comments We actually did have some sunshine our first day in Seattle, sparkling blue skies and fresh air – it was just interspersed with bouts of rain and mirrored with often lake-like puddles. But our second day was completely dry, and we took advantage of the fine weather, spending most of the day outdoors.Our first stop ...

Seattle Washington – It’s Only Rock n Roll in the Rain

October 5, 2010 No Comments Our kids came to Seattle for the rock and roll museum – or as it’s otherwise known, the Experience Music Project – and stayed for the rain. That’s right, they liked the rain. They liked huddling under a shared umbrella picked up cheap at Pike Place Market and splashing in puddles in new rubber boots picked ...
