Screen Shot 2016-02-08 at 1.00.03 PM

Last weekend, I went with 3 friends to The Lodge at Woodloch, an all-inclusive spa resort located in eastern Pennsylvania. It's about a three hour drive from Philadelphia and a two hour drive from Manhattan so the Lodge is an ideal spot for a quick weekend get away for us mid-Atlantic folks. We were there celebrating my bestie's 40th and had … [Read more...]

Screen Shot 2015-07-28 at 12.34.04 PM

From our house, it's just shy of two hours to drive down to Baltimore. My husband especially is familiar with the route; Under Armour (based in Baltimore) is one of his clients and he's there almost once a month. He's been talking about taking the kids to Baltimore for a weekend for ages but somehow it hasn't come together. Until recently, when … [Read more...]

Living in Philly, we're Jersey shore folks when we want to go to the beach. Hubby grew up going to Long Beach Island and we love visiting there and various other towns along the shore in New Jersey.

10 Easy Ways to Keep Your Kids Entertained on Road Trips

Only two and a half weeks 'til school lets out for my kids for the SUMMER!  I can't believe it.  And as every Mom can relate, I have that whole mixed bag of feelings going on - relief that I'll no longer have to pack lunches, help with homework and stick to the school schedule but also panic about what to do with them for the entire summer! One … [Read more...]

My Dream Weekend in Philadelphia #VisitPhilly

Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 1.49.02 PM

Flat out, I have to disclose that I'm totally biased with this post.  I live in the 'burbs of Philadelphia and have for the last 14 years so I pretty much think it's the coolest city around.  I just love it here.  I love it for a variety of reasons that aren't all related to tourism but I'll stick on topic with today's post.  But I did want to tell … [Read more...]
