We have a few different ideas when it comes to what makes for a good vacation in this family.
Cody: “LET’S DRIVE SOUTH AND TOUR HISTORICAL CIVIL WAR SIGHTS!”
Addie and Me: zzzzzzz…..
Addie: “LET’S GO BACK TO HO-HI-OH AND YOU CAN ALL WATCH ME ZIPLINE FOR HOURS!”
Me: “SAN FRANCISCO! PIER 39! EXPLORATORIUM! HAIGHT ASHBURY!”
Cody: “Who’s going to hold the baby on the 5 hour flight?”
Vivi: “BYE! BYYYEEEE!!!”
Cody: “LET’S GO BACK TO NEW YORK AND EAT PIZZA!”
Me: “PHILLY! CHEESESTEAKS!”
Addie: “UTAH! McDONALDS!”
Guess what? Deciding on family vacations around these parts is a little…tricky.
I really want to go to New Orleans, so does Cody, but for entirely different reasons than me. I still need to go back to Austin and really spend a good amount of time there. We all want to go to Philly and DC, well, the girls probably don’t but we’re the boss and we’ll make them like it whether they want to or not. San Francisco holds a very special place in my heart and I haven’t been to Seattle in YEARS. But what about all the smaller towns in North America? Had you told me “SOUTHEASTERN OHIO! BEST TRIP EVER!” I would have rolled my eyes at you when you weren’t looking. Turns out, Southeastern Ohio? BEST TRIP EVER!
We all really like Kansas City too. We’ve never done anything but drive through Omaha and St. Louis and I’ll bet even Oklahoma City could show us a good time.
We’ve romped around Cincy, had way too much fun in Chicago and even had a night to remember in Louisville. Heck, if you’ve never been to Indianapolis, you should really put it on your list. We’re super friendly and have an awful lot for you to do while your here.
Basically what I’m saying is while we may not all agree on which city is the best, we’ll make the best of any place we end up. It’s our gift as a family and it makes for awfully fun time together.
Radisson has been hosting travelers for 50 years, and to celebrate they’re giving away 50 rooms in 50 days. Guess who’s the giver-awayer today? (Me, it’s me!)
I want to know is where was the best family vacation in North America that you’ve ever had? For me it would be a toss up between my first trip to San Francisco when I was eight and our most recent trip to Ohio. Our trip to Disneyworld was pretty amazing too, then there was that time I got stuck in DC. Or the weekend in Chicago with Addie! Oy. I love to travel. I love to travel with my family, I want you to tell us where to go next!
