Road Trip with Teens to Charleston SC – City of Churches, Beaches and History

In the annals of travel tragedies, surely the fact that my family lived in South Carolina for three years before heading to the lovely Charleston area for a long weekend ranks high on that list.  That’s 1,095 days of tragedy, if you’re counting, but on the upside it gives us a long time to remedy the errors of our ways. Although Charleston is accessible, don’t forget it is on a peninsula so roads and traffic are always an issue. To avoid wasting time in city traffic, we counter-intuitively stayed in a hotel in the city of North Charleston, near...

Loving Walt Disney World and Avoiding Overdosing: Offsite at Wyndham Garden LBV

Walt Disney World is an awesome place. No ifs or ands.  But, well, there are some buts. One example?

And now her younger sister just got her learner’s permit. Hello, is this Just For Men? I’d like to buy some stock. Please? Seriously – putting someone who’s only been on the planet...

Disney’s Hollywood Studios: The Best Views We’d Rather Not Share

It won’t surprise anyone who knows me that my favorite place at Walt Disney World is not the one with Cinderella’s castle or the futuristic globe. It’s the one with the movies and the rock n’roll. Disney’s Hollywood Studios is my kind of place, and it’s become more realistic to spend time here now that all my kids are  in double digits. I haven’t yet persuaded them to worship Aerosmith, but hope springs eternal. Just like in the movies, it’s the sights at Hollywood that get me excited – I love the foreboding shadow of the Tower of Terror and the...
