My husband grew up in Rhode Island and since I’m not from the area when we moved back I became what is referred to as a “Bride of Rhode Island”. Now that we’ve lived here for a while and have children I understand the reason so many Rhode Islanders who have moved away move back to raise their families. Rhode Island provides a wonderful quality of life for raising children, from its many beautiful beaches to its fantastic resources for kids, there is always plenty to keep them entertained. I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you.
I recently had the pleasure of my in-laws visiting us for an entire week. Being that it was their first time coming to visit us in Miami, I came up with an itinerary to keep them busy and show them the very best that South Florida had to offer.
The very first thing on my list was a visit down to Key West! How could I not take my desert-dwelling in-laws to the most tropical destination in all of the United States?!
While I’ve spent many a relaxing vacations on the white sandy beaches of Key West, pina colada in hand, my in-laws aren’t what you would consider “drinkers,” so my game plan for their visit had to be a little different than it usually is when we make the trip down the 7 Mile Bridge.
Every now and then it’s healthy to leave all of your responsibilities behind and just go get away. I am in no way encouraging you to stop showing up for work, paying your bills, making your fantasy football picks or feeding your cat. But, for one weekend, a few times a year drop everything, pick a destination a few hours away and jump in the car. In this case, we headed to beautiful Indian Rocks Beach, FL.
