Sleepy Hollow Festivities and The Great Pumpkin Blaze!

We most recently fell for this particular section of The (Lower) Hudson Valley of New York located about an 45 minutes- an hour or so north Manhattan and less than 2.5 hours from Philly when we created and ventured on an “All Americana” trip back through this area and up to The Berkshires on Memorial…

Old Sturbridge Village, Massachusetts

I cannot recommend this living museum which depicts life in rural New England in 1830 enough….especially for those who want to teach their kiddos, and who are lovers of history. First of all, the 200 acre grounds are just lovely! We first visited in autumn when the leaves were starting to change and fall to…

Chasing Autumn in New England…

I’m not one to sit around and wait for things to happen so when fall wasn’t coming just yet back home, we went to go find it… A long weekend with the babes was the perfect excuse to go chase my favorite season, in my favorite region of this country. I mean, as much as…

Himalayan Salt Cave

This place was amazing!! Absolutely amazing!! You would never know that located in the corner of a strip mall in West Virginia lies this secret spot with the most incredible pink Himalayan salt cave!! We called specifically to inquire about the salt cave when we happened to be in the area and were told we…

Chihuly Museum & Gardens-Seattle

I first fell in love with Chihuly, the creator of the insanely mesmerizing blown glass pieces the second I laid eyes on them at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City. And then again on the ceiling in the lobby of The Bellagio in Las Vegas. If you’ve been to either of those places,…

Theodore Roosevelt National Park-North Dakota

To be completely honest, after being blown away by The Badlands in South Dakota I really didn’t have high expectations for the section of The Badlands to the North. Boy was I wrong! Each National Park is so different it’s really unfair to compare, even if they’re located so close together. They each have drastically…

Nordic Baths & Scandinavian Spa

Scandinave Spa in Mont-Tremblant is absolute pure magic!! Located about an hour and a half from Montreal, nestled in the woods on the shores of the Diable River in the sweetest little ski town of Mont Tremblant, is my idea of heaven…. Nordic baths, thermal pools, a solarium which is wraps you like a warm…

Mojave Desert

We very much enjoyed our journey through Mojave while traveling from Las Vegas to Joshua Tree National Park! This desert is found mostly in Nevada and California and stretches up a bit up into Utah and down to Arizona near Havasu. Highways that cross the Mojave are Interstate 15, Interstate 40, U.S. Route 95, U.S….

Joshua Tree National Park

I’ve always wanted to see those unmistakable, super unique Joshua Trees in person. Thanks U2 🙂 We traveled the 3.5 hours from Vegas through the desolate and eerily fascinating Mojave desert where you will indeed get a taste of what lies ahead. I’m not sure if you’re not a die hard National Park geek that…

White Sand National Monument

This gorgeous space in the middle of nowhere in New Mexico is quite magical. Despite all of the incredible places that have blown me away in this country, it’s still a little hard to believe this white sand oasis is located right here in our own backyard. Miles and miles of pristine white sand as…

Roaming The Redwoods

“This land was made for you and me”…is what we sang as we roamed around this magical forest. It’s always been on my list to hug a Redwood. Perhaps it’s because of the patriotic song, but it felt like such an “All American” thing to do. These babies are even more majestic in person and…

Mt Hood.

We absolutely LOVED Mt Hood, Oregon’s tallest peak. What a peaceful, beautiful place! How could you not love chilling on a 11,245 foot snow covered stratovolcano in the stunning PNW region of the country?! We could’ve stayed for hours and hours, even all night to camp which can be done in many, many campgrounds in…
