Mackinac Island is one of my favorite places to visit in Northern Michigan. The island is extremely popular in the summer but there are some advantages to visiting in the fall.
I really enjoy Stand Up Paddleboarding everytime that I try it. It’s such a great way to exercise and connect with nature. I’m sharing reasons why an iSUP (inflatable stand up paddleboard) is a great option for travelers to consider if you are debating between the pros and cons of real stand up paddleboard vs. an inflatable one.
My family has visited the Smoky Mountains region around and near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, many times over the years. Each time we visit, we run out of time before we run out of fun. There is ALWAYS something new to discover there…along with many family favorites that we try to visit each time we are in town.
A visit to see the Biltmore Estate was on my list for years and I was really excited when we were invited to experience what the Biltmore offered for families during a weekend stay. The Biltmore also happened to be the last destination that my mom was able to visit before she died. She absolutely LOVED her visit there and her face would light up when she would talk about it. I knew that I wanted to experience and get a sense of why it was such a special experience for her.
Northwest New Mexico has a lot to offer when it comes to outdoor adventure. I’m sharing a few of my favorite discoveries that are bucket list worthy to add to your adventure list.
I LOVE to experience unique overnights. Overnight in a Treehouse. Check. Museum. Check. Submarine. Check. Aquarium. Check. Tepee. Check. Kings Island Amusement Park. Check…..so when I found out that the Cincinnati Zoo offered family overnights where you can sleep in African Safari style tents near the giraffe area, I had to check it out!
If you live in the Cincinnati Metro, you don’t have to travel far for your own Water Wipeout experience. Land of Illusion has been making people scream for years during their Haunt Season but at their newest summer attraction, Aqua Adventures, the only screams you’ll hear are pure JOY!
I enjoy the nature side of camping but over the years, I’ve decided that I’m not a huge fan of the work that can come along with traditional camping…which is why I really enjoy glamping. Glamping still allows you to connect with nature but it also provides you with a unique overnight with modern conveniences. Our retro camper rental from Route Fifty Campers took the stress out of our camping experience.
El Paso, Texas is ones of those cities that I instantly fell in love with. The landscape is so different from what I see in the Midwest and yet it had a few similarities. I live in a Tri-State area where it is common to cross state borders daily and El Paso’s location is a Tri-city with access to both New Mexico and Juarez, Mexico. It almost feels like it’s own distinct place because the landscape is so different from the flatter parts of the Texas.
