Kentucky has a lot to offer for couples or friends looking for a weekend getaway. I was invited to experience the Moonshine Mamas Tour by Traveling Mom for a fews days of touring and tasting on the Bourbon Trail. Kentucky is known around the world for their bourbon, but there is still so much more to discover.
I look forward to the butterfly show at the Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati every year. The butterfly exhibit takes us from spring to summer with a gorgeous array of butterflies and flowers.
We’ve driven the popular Cades Cove 11 mile loop many times during visits to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The scenic curvy road that leads to Cades Cove is filled with gorgeous imagery of mountains and streams during the 13.1 mile drive. Depending on the time of year, traffic to the park, and how many times you stop for pictures or animal sightings, the drive to Cades Cove could take you between 40 minutes-1hr+ to reach.
During my visit to Daytona Beach, we stayed at the Plaza Resort & Spa. This was my 1st visit to Daytona Beach and the area exceeded my expectations.
I discovered Oldenburg, Indiana on a whim. My boys and I were traveling back from Indy and my curiosity won. Known as the Village of the Spires, Oldenburg’s German heritage and charm makes it a great daytrip getaway located about an hour from Cincinnati.
Traverse City, Michigan is a very popular destination in the summer for its beautiful water, weather, and a love of all things cherry themed or flavored, as the Cherry Capital of the World…..but you don’t have to wait until summer to experience adventure in Northern Michigan! I discovered why Crystal Mountain is a such a popular “snowcation” destination for winter fun too.
A dinner and a movie can be a nice date …..but every now and then it’s fun to think outside the box by trying something new together. I’ve created a list of some of my favorite unique date ideas.
Weird and Good! That’s how my husband and I would describe Little Shop of Horrors presented by Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park. That description may be a little too over simplified. When the plot involves a talking plant that thirst for human blood…that’s definitely a little weird, but the good came in SO many forms during the play.
My husband and I took a winter road trip from Cincinnati to the Laurel Highlands in Pennsylvania. It was our first visit to the area and we were looking forward to skiing at a few different locations.
Roadtrips are always a great excuse to reconnect and renew your sense of adventure. Long road trips give you plenty of time to share your hopes and dreams……and anything in between.
…..They can also easily become a source of strife.
