What does it take to have a perfect Palm Springs weekend getaway? A few things: great hotel, fun and relaxing plan, somebody wonderful to escape with (even if it’s just yourself).

We’ve loved visiting the Santa Maria Valley of California for years, ever since our first visit in 2017. We wanted to take a different approach to visiting on our most recent trip, so went with the theme of agritourism. Of course we still enjoyed the beach and nature of the Central Coast, but California agritourism with kids was a hit

October is one of the best months to travel since kids have gone back to school and people are prepping for the holidays. Also a bonus: fall colors are going to be showing up and changing before you know it. We've been thinking about all of our favorite places to visit in the fall and National Parks have the best

Let’s just start by making it clear: it’s perfectly fine to do Disneyland without kids. Whether you want to visit and leave the kids at home or maybe you don’t have kids, that’s fine. Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure are both incredible and super fun without kids. What do adults do in Disneyland without kids? Whatever they want. Here’s how we

What could be more perfect any time of year than a California Central Coast road trip? Nothing. Leaving the SoCal area out of Los Angeles and heading north up the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), you’re bound to find beautiful, quirky, delicious, and captivating stops.

We're back in Southern California, aka SoCal! What are we doing here? Great question! We've got lots of fun plans in store, from having some fun in Disneyland with the kids to visiting with friends and just relaxing at the beach. Follow along on our summertime in SoCal travel journal to see what's new and exciting in Southern California! Our Summertime

You know that we try to do slightly unconventional trips with the kids.  Nothing crazy, but typically hitting more natural and historical sites over big ticket destinations. We just did one of our favorite road trips through California and it was different this time than any time before. We drove from Los Angeles to San Francisco spending time in the

By now you know how much fun we’ve had through the years in Disneyland, and now especially with our kids in the Parks.  Both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure are loaded with fun experiences, but it really is smart to prep for a visit to either spot.  California Adventure with kids is non-stop fun (and perfect for adults too!). So you’re

There is no one destination on Earth that we've been to as many times as Disneyland. It's actually shocking to start calculating how many hours we have spent in both Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure. Our Disneyland tips come from hundreds of hours of fun both with and without kids. that's right, sometimes we’re in Disneyland without children. Hahaha. A

This post is sponsored by Kimberly-Clark We’ve just returned from our first family trip to Disneyland with all four of us and it was incredible.  We were so fortunate to get to experience not just Disneyland and California Adventure, but then also the Cars 3 Premiere and an unforgettable Cars Land experience with the kids.  And we’ve learned a lot about

It’s no secret that we love the weekends.  I mean, who doesn’t? With or without the kids we try to break away to a new city or visit one of our old favs whenever possible, and we’ve partnered with Hampton by Hilton to share some of what we think are the best destinations to be a Seekender.

We love to find places that everybody talks about but nobody knows the cool stuff you can do there.  One such place is Palm Springs, California.  I mean, everybody goes there for a nice weekend or a relaxing vacation, but besides golf, gay bars and swimming pools, what is there?  The ACTUAL Palm Springs!! Agua Caliente Indian Canyons is the

Somewhere between the skyscrapers of Los Angeles and the beaches of San Diego there’s pocket of Old California.  When you’re touring Southern California it’s easy to just breeze on down to your final destination, but why would you when you could make some great SoCal stops?  Mission San Juan Capistrano is one stop you have to do. Mission San Juan Capistrano

Every city has its defining characteristics that make it unusual and attractive.  Seattle has the ferry system and Pike Place Market, Los Angeles has the film industry and beaches, San Francisco has the cable cars and all of its hills… Well, the coolest San Francisco’s hills is for sure Telegraph Hill, and the wonders of Telegraph Hill are the Greenwich

San Diego, California is such a popular west coast destination.  We all love to head to SoCal for the nearly guaranteed sunshine and beaches where you can actually swim.  And the coastal vibe is so different, with bare feet everywhere and flowers blooming on the bluffs year round.  Cabrillo National Monument is a great place to experience that great SoCal

California.  That California life is so awesome with all that nature and sunshine.  What better way to experience it than by doing a California coast road trip?  We're going to start at the northern border, but reverse our plan and you'll have just as amazing of a time.
