Camping, at Huttopia in Sanford, Maine

  Our family is well acquainted with Huttopia, Canada USA. We’ve been to their White Mountains location twice before, you can read about our first stay here and our more recent stay, here. When we heard about their newest location being in Southern Maine we were ecstatic to try it out. It’s even closer to Boston (our home) than the New Hampshire...

Seven Hills and the Berkshires

I have an absolute love for old mansions and castles etc., but I don’t think I have actually ever slept in one before…until our stay at Seven Hills Inn. The Berkshires are nestled out in western MA, right along the border of New York. It’s  about a 2 hour drive from Boston, which makes the Berkshires a perfect weekend getaway for those in the city...

glamping in the White Mountains, NH – a review of Huttopia

Sometimes you take a trip someplace and you just know it in your heart that you’ll have to go back and experience it again, you know? Big city dream trips like Paris or a little island vacation in Greece come to mind, but so do some of the simpler places. The type of trip that just is slow and settles into your soul. Last summer we visited the White...

Cartagena With Kids

Cartagena and Hotel Caribe

Cartagena has been on our list for awhile, those pretty colored buildings lining the walled in streets of the old city; yes, those are the kind of cities we live for. We had the amazing opportunity of visiting Cartagena at the end of May and we had the best time. We stayed at Hotel Caribe, the oldest resort on the peninsula just south west of the old city. The...

New Orleans With Kids

New Orleans

There are several cities that scream “adults only”. Amsterdam, Las Vegas, New Orleans. But I say, “no way, Jose!” Nothing will hold us back from traveling as a family, usually, every place has something for everyone, you may just have to look a little harder sometimes. New Orleans with kids is so much fun. It really is. This was our second...

Little Rock With Kids

Little Rock

Our family just got back from visiting Little Rock, AR, and we seriously had the best time!  Little Rock is a big, little city and it has a lot to offer! The first thing we took away from Little Rock is how friendly the people are. Seriously, every place we went people approached us with kind words or suggestions on what we should do or eat in their city. Another...

Quebec City With Kids

Winter in Old Quebec City

I’m going to go ahead and assume that you would never be unhappy with a visit to Quebec City, especially with kids. We were there in the winter, when it was below freezing every single day and we still had the time of our lives and our kids did too! If you’re looking for a winter destination, but you’re not too keen on needing it to be a ski...

If you love the magic of lit up theme parks and buildings with colorful palettes and gingerbread accents – then Leavenworth is for you. German food? go to Leavenworth. Every winter the town of...
