I’ve been spending more time lately travel blogging and am really enjoying it. One of the things that I am unexpectedly enjoying the most is getting to know other travel bloggers and reading about and seeing beautiful photos of their adventures. I made a new, talented friend the other day, Kana Imamura, who has a fabulous blog, Life in Wanderlust, and an even more amazing Instagram account. In 2015, Kana decided to walk away from her corporate life and do what makes her heart happy: wander, discover and travel. What could be more inspiring than that?!
When you live in the Vail area and it is is snowing on a Sunday, what do most people do? Hit the ski slopes, of course! Not us, not today. After bouncing around what to do on a quiet Sunday when it is snowing out we somehow landed on the idea of heading over to the Iron Mountain Hot Springs in Glenwood Springs. Here is what to know before you go.
There is one school party each year for which I make a homemade healthy treat, watermelon hearts. Here’s to my one and only Pinterest project!
Sledding is perhaps the most underrated Colorado winter sport. Every neighborhood or golf course has a few sledding hills and the only cost is the acquisition of a speedy sled. You do need a little snow but the Vail area has had plenty of that this January.
Nestled at the base of Vail Ski Mountain, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains and surrounded by White River National Forest, Vail is a spectacular mountain town with bountiful recreational opportunities from skiing, snowboarding, ski biking, tubing, sledding, ice skating and much more. Here are some tips on how to choose where to stay.
Skiing in Colorado is expensive for a family. There’s no way around that. But, here are some resources to help minimize the hit to your wallet when signing your kids up for ski lessons. Vail Resorts offers an EPIC Schoolkids program for Colorado residents and many of the smaller resorts offer affordable lessons.
Vail is very family friendly and has lots of activities for kids, from the epic outdoor adventures to bowling and ice skating. Activities for the little ones are a bit less known. Here are our top five (mostly free) toddler-friendly activities in Vail, Colorado.
Around October the temperatures in Dallas finally drop to a comfortable level with highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s or 70s. For family fun in Dallas, fall is a perfect time to visit and enjoy outdoor activities in the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) area. Last weekend we took a quick family trip and enjoyed the Dallas Arboretum and The State Fair of Texas while in Dallas.
Fall in the Rocky Mountains is spectacular. The aspen leaves turn golden and discounts at hotels and restaurants abound. It is the perfect time for a family getaway.
Living on the Western Slope of Colorado, Denver has always been a favorite weekend getaway. So when the opportunity presented itself to join some old friends for a ballgame we jumped at the chance to enjoy a family weekend in Denver. I envisioned writing an article about the kids’ first baseball game and the little guy’s first visit to the Denver Children’s Museum. But who would have guessed that Crawford Hotel and Denver Union Station would become the highlight?!
