Kid starting kinder? We’ve talked about that over the years. A LOT. Here’s all our kindergarten and kinder-adjacent content collected in one handy place!
Amber waves of grain, golden plains filled with sunflowers, tornado alley and Dorothy—this might be what you think of when you think of Kansas City – but that’s not all we’re made of! Kansas City sits in the heart of the nation and is split between Kansas and Missouri. As you crisscross state lines, get ready to experience the variety “the metro” offers for families and couples alike. Our hometown sports are second to none, but if sports aren’t your thing, don’t worry! We’ve got tantalizing BBQ, cool indoor experiences to beat the summer heat, and lots of outdoor adventures waiting for you. Welcome!
Nestled on the Montana and Canadian border lies Glacier National Park. Growing up, I lived in Wyoming, and my family drove to Glacier Park nearly every summer to visit extended family.
Now, we make the trip once or twice a year with our kids: once in July, and if we’re able, another trip in the shoulder season—May or September. My kids are 7, 5, and 2, so most of my recommendations are for places to go with young kids.
I moved to Los Angeles a few days after my eighteenth birthday eager to explore this star-studded city where everything felt new and exciting.

City lights, cattle drives, craft breweries, and one of the country’s fastest growing areas in the tech industry makes the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex an enticing place to live or visit these days! I have lived in and around the Dallas area my entire life – including attending The University of Texas at Dallas for my college education. But raising my own kids here has given me a new perspective on just how full and rich the experiences are in DFW. It has been so fun to witness changes over time and explore new areas right before my own eyes. If you are planning a trip to the Dallas area anytime soon or you are looking for a fun, family trip location – let me tell you all about my hometown of Dallas, Texas!
