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.

You don’t have to be a fan of thrill rides to enjoy a visit to Kings Island Amusement Park. There are still plenty of entertainment options for non-riders of all ages.
Summer is the perfect time to take advantage of the warmer temperatures and think outside of the box when it comes to planning a special date. I’m sharing a few of favorite summer date ideas around Cincinnati.
The Colorado Springs Region offers so much for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. From unique natural wonders like the Garden of the Gods Park and Pikes Peak creating scenic landscapes that will leave an impression on you for years to come. I got a small glimpse of the area 20+ years ago and there are so many reasons to want to go back!
While the kids were away, the moms went to play. My friend Susan and I took advantage of some kid-free hours with a Daycation in Butler County. You don’t have to go far or away for a night to pack in a LOT of FUN!
Food tours are one of my absolute favorite ways to experience a city. A big part of visiting a destination for me is learning about the local foods and surrounding area. Tourists and locals alike can learn so much about the area by experiencing menu items at restaurants that may have not been on their radar.
