Stough Canyon & Nature Center Burbank – A Walk on the Wild Side

Stough Canyon & Nature Center Burbank – A Walk on the Wild Side

November 17, 2010 No Comments One of the things that I love best about living in Burbank California is its proximity to everything. If I feel like going to the mall, or to Starbucks for an overpriced but yummy latte, I can be there in five minutes. Conversely, if I feel like getting away from civilization and back to nature, ...

 

Catalina Island Family Crusin’

Catalina Island Family Crusin’

November 17, 2010 No Comments Catalina Island fun starts with the ferry ride from the California main land from San Pedro, Marina Del Rey, or Newport Beach, California. If you’re a Southern California native, Catalina cruising is a ritual of sorts, everyone does it, and seemingly everyone brings their children along for the ride. If you’re visiting the area, this ...

Santa Monica – LA’s Seaside Children’s Paradise

November 16, 2010 No Comments Los Angeles is a city with many communities, and each of them house many great family attractions. But Santa Monica may very well top the list of kid-friendly destinations in the LA basin – it’s a children’s paradise with fun museums, great parks, and a fantastic Ferris Wheel.

Family Vacation Tips – Where to Stay on your Kid-cation

November 16, 2010 No Comments Over the years, we’ve taken our kids to bed and breakfasts, campgrounds, motels, hotels, and rented homes. Your destination predicates your choice of accommodations of course – you can’t enjoy a family beach weekend at Jalama, a pleasantly isolated beach north of Santa Barbara – without camping. And you’re not going to camp in the ...

New Orleans Family Attractions – Part 2

November 15, 2010 No Comments In my previous New Orleans article New Orleans Family Attractions, I left you with images of giant Mardi Gras mermaids, ducks, boats and balloons from Blaine Kern’s awesome Mardi Gras float museum – and distant lunch time memories of Po’ Boy classic sandwiches.   For us, it was dinner time, and local friends recommended the Palace. Located ...

New Orleans Family Attractions

November 15, 2010 1 Comment New Orleans might not be the first spot you think of for a family vacation – but think of it now. What child won’t enjoy hot sweet beignets for breakfast and watching boats drift down the river on a lazy afternoon? And let’s not forget street cars and flaming bananas. Best of all, central New ...

Death Valley – Rhyolite Ruins, Charcoal Kilns and Mosaic Canyon

November 15, 2010 No Comments In my last article on this wonderful Death Valley desert landscape, I left you heading out of the park to the north toward Beatty, Nevada and the wonderful ghost town of Rhyolite en route. Not only is the town well preserved, its easily accessible on a paved road.   Maintained by the Bureau of Land ...

More Desert Explorations – Death Valley National Park

November 15, 2010 1 Comment The desert quiet is intense, and no matter where you spend the night, you’ll get a sound night’s sleep. And it’s a good thing, too, because one of the best times to explore Death Valley’s magnificent sand dunes is early morning. Grab a quick breakfast to go from the convenience store at Furnace Creek ranch ...

 

Death Valley, CA – Desert Explorations

Death Valley, CA – Desert Explorations

November 15, 2010 2 Comments We started taking our kids to Death Valley before they were even born. I was pregnant with my daughter when I began to appreciate the beauty of the desert. In the interim we’ve driven, hiked, swam, toured, and off-roaded in this large, wonderful park of brilliantly hued mountains. Death Valley National Park is about five ...
