Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
Jingle Bells? Seriously, in July? Absolutely! Busch Gardens Tampa Bay revealed their brand new Christmas Town to the media in July and we were able to get a sneak peak. It’s never too early, in my opinion, to start thinking about old St. Nick and what size bulbs we’ll use this year. Beginning November 30th and running until December 23rd, Busch Gardens will be opening a magical Christmas Town that will transport you to what we all wish Florida was like during the holidays. It will be open in the evenings only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from 6-11 p.m.

In my travel writing adventures, I come across unique and fun discoveries that I love to share with other people. If you are looking for a unique experience in California, this is a secret place that few people know about.
Thanksgiving in New England means more than just pilgrims and cranberries, it is also the unofficial start of ski season! Each year, around this time, skis and snowboards around the region come out of the basement, and off for a tune up. Of all of the resorts in the New England region, Killington is one of the most popular.
Just about all cities, big or small, will have some kind of Christmas celebration. It’s a staple and pretty massive affair for some cities whereas others tend to not make a big deal out of theirs. Most parades are filled with plenty of holiday cheer, good eats, the lighting of the city’s Christmas trees and a ton of family-friendly activities. We’ve done our research and found some of the best Christmas parades across the U.S. If we happened to miss your city, let us know so we can add it to the list!
National Christmas Tree Lighting
Location: Washington, D.C.
If you happen to be in our nation’s Capitol during this time of year, we think you should make some time to stop by this ginormous tree and the twinkling lights that are displayed all over it.
Spanish Fork City Annual Festival of Lights
Location: Spanish Fork, Utah
Spend $7 and enjoy a beautiful festival of lights with the family. There’s no need to park the car and walk around as you can simply drive through a beautiful display of lights and Christmas decorations.
We’re in the streets again and we’re bringing you another video at a family fun attraction. While Walt Disney World is popular for Magic Kingdom and the big mouse, there are also plenty of attractions for thrill seekers. The Richard Petty Driving Experience has been a huge hit since its inception and they have recently provided opportunities for smaller kids to get a chance to ride along the speedway. Lee of Drive The Nation gives us a close up of the experience and speaks with the professionals at the speedway.
Whether you’re in San Diego, California for a few days or just one and on the hunt for a perfect daycation, staycation or vacation, there’s an endless list of activities available to keep you busy. One in particular can be found by taking a quick water taxi ride straight across the San Diego Bay or a drive across the soaring bridge. This location is known as Coronado, a laid-back beach town that offers powdery sand beaches, family-friendly activities and breathtaking views of the bay side overlooking the San Diego skyline.
During the holidays you either scramble to figure out how you’re getting home or have a plan played out and booked weeks ahead of time. If you’re in the category of scrambling, take these tips into consideration to help you get home safe and chaos-free.
