My family had a blast on an 8 day RV adventure to the Mid-Atlantic. We decided to make Pittsburgh the first stop on our itinerary because it’s a reasonable drive from Cincinnati. We also wanted an excuse to come back after falling in love with the city a few years ago. My grandfather joined our family on a 3 week vacation out West when I was a teenager, and it was a full circle experience to have my dad join our family on this multi generational vacation.
Summer is the perfect time to plan a roadtrip and create memories with your family. Whether it’s a daytrip or a weekend getaway, COSI in Columbus is a great destination for families.
To get a better understanding of the Kentucky Derby, a great place to start racing appreciation is at the Kentucky Derby Museum located next to Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.
I met the representatives from Visit Stillwater at a travel conference a few years ago and their enthusiasm and passion about their city intrigued me enough to want to visit a place that was honestly never on my radar before. There are two things that you learn pretty quickly during a visit to Stillwater, OK; this community LOVES football and you are destined to bring home one of their creative t-shirts.
So what is there to do in Stillwater, Oklahoma?

Cincinnati offers incredible museums throughout the city, but there is one museum in the city that tends to be known more by tourists than locals. That underrated museum is the American Sign Museum. The American Sign Museum provides education and celebrates the art of sign making. As a local, I was immediately mad at myself for not visiting the museum sooner! It truly is a unique gem that is very special to our city.

I’ll admit that I wasn’t super excited when I found out that we would be visiting a museum dedicated to wrestling. Now, I’m not talking about WWE style, I’m talking about the type of wrestling that you see in the Olympics or at your local high school. Wrestling was not a big sport in my high school so my two memories connected to wrestling were guys who probably didn’t make the football team sweating on each other, and a guy on the wrestling team wanting to open all the windows in our classroom in the middle of winter to help him make weight.
I went to the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum in Stillwater, Oklahoma with an open mind and discovered it to be very interesting which pleasantly surprised me and made me regret that I judged the sport unfairly.
