Hawaii is the only state in America that is completely located in an ocean and is made up entirely of islands. There are hundreds of islands that make up the state of Hawaii, but the eight main islands are Ni'ihau, Kaua'i, O'ahu, Moloka'i, Lāna'i, Kaho'olawe, Maui and the island of Hawai'i. The weather in Hawaii is always warm and tropical, so it is the perfect place to vacation at any time of the year.
While it is certainly a city rife with history, there's so much more to see and do beyond "the bell." You may not be aware but this is a lively city budding with delicious cuisine, art culture, beer gardens, local artisan boutiques and so much more.
A country retreat for city-folk dating back to the early 1800's, call her old-fashioned but there is nothing stodgy about
San Francisco seems big -- but I soon realized that her size (surprisingly only 7 square miles), has little to do with the grandeur you feel while visiting, but everything to do with the big hearts and open minds of the San Franciscans themselves. Much has been written of her culinary and cocktail culture, her nature and leisure pursuits, but it is also one of the museum capitals of the United States.
With the low Canadian dollar, families across the country are satisfying their travel itch the old-fashioned way: through the open road. Whether it's driving through the Great White North or heading down south, road trips are a cost-effective solution to a summer getaway.
Like most remote and magical hidden corners, we heard whispers and rumblings from friends and colleagues about Nicaragua as a travellers' delight.
A monarchy up until 1918, echoes of her aristocratic roots can still be felt and experienced by visitors today. As important as this history and tradition are to the city, there is also an edgy emerging art, fashion and food scene that are definitely worth exploring, experiencing and tasting.
I decided to take our littles on an odyssey of our own, one they will recall with fondness one day (I hope). Our plan was simple: to ride the rails east from Toronto's Union Station to Montreal and spend several days exploring the historical streets.
Los Angeles is a sprawling city full of low strip malls, palmed avenues, film studios and over-crowded attractions, BUT that SoCal living is still so sweet. The city's full of beautiful parks, kid-friendly hikes, beaches (oh so many beaches!) and hip vegan restaurants with high chairs -- A great destination for the adventuring family.
Boston -- a town known for its Ivy League pedigree, lobster rolls and of course it's battles, revolutions and tea parties. It is also a fantastic urban getaway for a traveling family looking for great food, culture, and maybe even a visit to the ball game.
