A Quick Trip to Washington, D.C.

We may have been a little dramatic in our Instagram stories (listed under “highlights” for now) while waiting to board our very delayed flight to Washington, D.C., but to be fair by the time we boarded, we were already supposed to have landed. Normally losing a couple hours of vacation is a nuisance, but not …

Ten Tips for a Successful Day Trip to the Kennedy Space Center

Keeping with our New Year’s Resolution to travel more within our own state, we made the trek down to Cape Canaveral, Florida to visit the Kennedy Space Center. I’d dreamed of attending Space Camp as a young girl, but missed out on the opportunity (though I guess not for good, since there is such a …

Four Days in Memphis, Tennessee

About a year before we visited Nashville, we visited Memphis, Tennessee (I imagine most people visit those two cities in the opposite order). This was back in July 2016, nearly nine months before we started this blog. I plan on sharing some of our past trips in this space this year; I hope you don’t mind!

Traveling Light: Providence, RI Packing List

Normally packing for a three-day weekend is a breeze, but when you’re from Florida and the temperature at your destination is barely expected to rise above freezing, it can be a challenge.

Three Days in Providence, RI

Last weekend we celebrated Christmas early by flying north for three days to Providence, Rhode Island. We selected Providence because the airfare was in our price range, the flight times worked with our schedule, hotel prices were reasonable, and we’d hoped to see snow (despite my family’s insistence that you always fly south in the winter). …

Christmas in New York

Christmastime in New York City is busy, crowded, and expensive. Last year at this time in December, we took a 6:00 a.m. flight out of Florida with our return flight booked for 8:00 p.m. the following evening. We spent $150 each for plane tickets, $320 on a one-night reservation at the now-defunct Hotel Dumont, and …

A Three-Day Weekend in NYC

This was not your typical New York City trip. There was no Statue of Liberty involved, no shuffling through Times Square, no trip to the top of the Empire State Building, and only one museum. It’s our umpteenth time visiting NYC over the past few years, so we spent our time exploring some of the …

Traveling Light: New York City Packing List

And we’re back! We usually try to visit New York City once a year, and quite unbelievably as of last week we hadn’t been yet this year. Well, we remedied that over the past weekend and spent three days eating and shopping to our hearts’ content. Next week I’ll share what we did, but for …
