Take A ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ In Chicago

We all know that classic movie from our youth, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, where Ferris (played by a young Matthew Broderick) decides to skip school for a day and gets into all sorts of fun and hijinks in Chicago. We liked that movie so much, we figured you can do the same thing too! Read More

Longhorn Cavern State Park

By: Melanie Warner

You haven’t really experienced a road trip until you’ve gone through Texas. Miles of prairies, lakes, trees, and sometimes… miles of nothing. The beauty of Texas Hill Country is something that every true-blooded American should experience. With the striking bluebonnets in bloom, the long grass waving as you pass, the life-altering sunsets, and ever-changing weather – you never really know what discovery a new day will bring. Right smack dab in the middle of Texas, is Hill Country. In between Burnet and Marble Falls is a hidden gem called Longhorn Cavern State Park (longhorncaverns.com). Read More

Up Country Driving Guide: Maui, Hawaii

By: Cynthia Cunniff

When the average person thinks of Maui, the idealistic swaying palm trees on pristine sand beaches and fruity drinks with tiny umbrellas perched to the side of a coconut cup come to mind.  I love the state of Hawaii, each island has a different flavor, but they all have the commonality of the understated, chilled out Hawaiian way of life.  Maui is no exception, and if you’re one to want a real taste of the culture you’re visiting and a break from the touristy coastal scene – head Up Country, which lies at the foot of Haleakala Volcano and is the home to poniolos (Hawaiian cowboys).

Tenaya Lodge: Yosemite

 

by: Melanie Warner

Yosemite is an international destination with much to offer. Just south of the main gate to Yosemite, is the sleepy town called Fish Camp. It’s a great place to stay when visiting the park because you avoid the hustle, bustle and traffic, you still have cell phone coverage, and there are many activities to choose from. We tried and tested this “escape” in just one day. It’s affordable, kid-friendly and easy to access from anywhere in California. Read More

Yosemite In A Day

It’s hard to single out the best part of Yosemite National Park. There are so many treasures. The must-have photos are ones just outside of Tunnel View and El Capitan. Whether you enjoy hiking, rock climbing, swimming, camping, photography – there are just so many things to do that it’s hard to narrow it down to a quick day trip. It’s no wonder the park hosts more visitors per year than Disneyland. Read More
