Top Posts from our 2nd Year
This large and unique zoo in Escondido, California is part of the world-famous San Diego Zoo. Here, visitors can take a tour of the African savanna and see a cheetah run at top speed.
Utah has many great dinosaur destinations, and this is one of the best for families. Part museum, part park, the Ogden Dinosaur Park is a lot of fun.
Utah is one of the best places in the United States to see the Milky Way because of its national parks are both far away from city lights but still accessible to visitors.
My family visited this special place as part of my son’s wish to visit Walt Disney World after he beat cancer. Children with life-threatening illnesses and their families get to stay here, and anyone can volunteer.
Disney World is one of the most popular wishes at Make-A-Wish. In this post, I share everything we wanted to know before our trip.
My family learned a lot from our first real camping trip and I passed on what worked and what didn’t in this popular post. We have been camping since, so lessons we learned the hard way did not go to waste.
Taking a toddler on an airplane is not for the faint of heart. As the mom of five, Katie has been doing it for years. She shared her top tips in this post, which became an instant hit on Pinterest.
It turns out that “Can You Swim in the Great Salt Lake” is Googled nearly every day. Want to know the answer to that question? We have it.
Groupon Getaways can be a great resource for deal hunters. This post got a big boost when it was featured on ABC’s The Lookout and the Huffington Post.
We visited LEGOLAND twice in 2013 and these tips for other families have been popular on Google and social media ever since.
Thank you to all of our readers! We are looking forward to another great year with you.
