Zion National Park Tips

Written in collaboration with Kampgrounds of America aka KOA. Opinions are our own. We have made Father’s Day Week our annual camping trip for the last three years. We have found that it is a nice way to kick off the summer right when school ends, and the national parks are not yet overcrowded. We think it’s because everyone is saving up their vacation for 4th of July which is only a couple of weeks away. It’s always better with friends and family, but it requires more planning and doesn’t always work out because of scheduling conflicts. This year we visited Zion National Park in Utah, because it was highly … READ MORE >>

TRAVEL: San Juan Islands Washington

Written in collaboration with San Juan Islands, Washington. There are a few times a year when I like to feature a travel story. Memorable Spring Break trips are one of them. This year I wanted to to go somewhere on my bucket list, and decided on San Juan Islands. The islands are located off the coast of Washington State, and close to the Canadian border. I wanted to go there because I’ve never been to Seattle, and secondly because one of the islands is called “Orcas Islands.” Although it wasn’t high season to see Orcas, we went in hopes we would see them in transit. Fortunately, we were lucky enough … READ MORE >>
