Locations/Trips in New York
New York City

This was a combined "adventure/research" trip where our daughter wanted to explore the New York City Fashion Institute of Technology to determine if that was where she would like to apply to for college. The adventure portion was because none of us had ever spent any length of time in New York City and we wanted to see all of the sights.

Maine Coastline Adventure

This trip was all about a desire to visit areas of Maine that none of us had ever visited; Bar Harbor, Acadia Park, Portland, etc. Since we have a number of family members in the New England area, plus we are huge seafood enthusiasts, making this trip was a very easy decision!

Locations/Trips in Florida
Sarasota, Florida Restaurants

We like to support local businesses and are always on the lookout for small restaurants that are locally owned. You may not have heard of these restaurants while visiting Sarasota but each one has a unique approach and serves excellent food in our opinion. If you are in Sarasota and looking for something different and want to avoid the seasonal crowds check them out.

Locations/Trips in the Carolinas
North & South Carolina

We had decided to relocate from Virginia, but had not yet settled on where we wanted to move to, and since we had read a number of interesting articles about the Carolinas - we decided to combine a trip of investigation, with some R&R and some fun.

Locations/Trips in the Blue Ridge Mountains
Blue Ridge Romp

Our game plan was to visit Tallulah Gorge State Park north of Atlanta, then drive on to the Asheville, NC area so we could visit the city as well as Catawba Falls. From there we would visit Big Meadows Lodge in the Shenandoah National Park, VA. Each of these parks offered interesting hiking as well as beautiful geography & vistas.

Western US Ski Trips
Ski Resorts

We have been a skiing and snow boarding family since our children were both quite little, and then both of our kids learned to ski at various Colorado Resorts. Unfortunately some of our earlier snow trips were prior to the advent of electronic images, so the list below are from trips where we do have electronically saved images.

  • Grand Targhee, Idaho is a little off the beaten path, but the snow is almost always plentiful and the altitude isn't as high as the Colorado Resorts. Click here to visit our Grand Targhee Idaho Page.
  • Keystone, Colorado We started going here in 1991, and have had a lot of fun ever time. Click here to visit our Keystone Colorado Page.
  • Copper Mountain, Colorado Copper is located prior to Vail, and it is isolated from the other ski resorts like Keystone, Breckenridge, and others. Click here to visit our Copper Mountain Colorado Page.
  • Big Sky, Montana Another attempt to avoid the limited Colorado snow that year, but lack of snow was not an issue in Montana! Proximity to Yellowstone National Park was also a plus. Click here to visit our Big Sky Montana Page.
Hawaii Travels
Oahu & Maui

The majority of our entire family went for a wide range of reasons, ie; a 50th wedding anniversary, a marraige and most of all - just for the fun of visiting these beautiful islands.

Oahu & Kauai

Yup - we had so much fun on the previous trip to Hawaii that we had to do it again. Going to Hawaii during winter in Virginia doesn't require much analysis, and we used the main part of our trip on Kauai (win-win).
