    A Romantic Weekend Getaway in Hocking Hills

    While my husband and I love trips out-of-state, the past few years we’ve found a lot of joy in small weekend getaways to places within the state of Ohio. Especially with two kids at home, it’s nice to be able to drive somewhere only a few hours away while the grandparents babysit. We both really wanted to visit Hocking Hills as it’s been a few years since either of us had been there, so I was thrilled when Ohio. Find It Here. and Hocking Hills Tourism Association reached out to work together. If you’re looking for a romantic getaway with your partner with epic hiking views, delicious food and other…

    Explore the Ledges of Northeast Ohio

The formations were carved and broken when fast-moving waters cut through the sandstone as they emptied into the inland sea that was once Ohio. Pretty cool, right?

    Hiking South Lake Tahoe in Three Days

    If you’re anything like me, when it comes to planning a hiking trip I am determined to always get in as many miles as possible at each location. It can be tricky to plan, though, especially when you’ve never been to a certain area and are solely relying on guide books and websites to show you the way. And when you’re trip involves mountains, maps can be deceiving and make things appear closer than they are. When my husband and I planned our California excursion, South Lake Tahoe was the first (and shortest) destination of our trip. I had no idea what to expect, I just knew I wanted to…

    Your Guide to a Weekend in Toronto

    Road trips are a quintessential type of adventure, and I like to take them as frequently as possible. So, when a friend proposed a road trip to Toronto earlier this year I was excited. Then as soon as we started researching things we could do, I was sold.  A five hour drive from Cleveland and we were in another country! I was honestly blown away by how much Toronto and the stops along the way had to offer. In just four short days we saw four waterfalls, hiked to an overlook seeing the city of Hamilton, ate some of the best ice cream I’ve ever had, biked the entire city…

    The Best Hiking in the Cleveland Metroparks

    Did you know that Cleveland Metroparks is home to 18 reservations, spanning 23,000 miles in the greater Cleveland area? From what I’ve experienced, it seems like a lot of people living in the area didn’t or still don’t know that there’s so much to see and explore outside the city limits. So I wanted to share what I consider the best hiking in the Cleveland Metroparks. I challenged myself to rank the Cleveland Metroparks. This was really hard, because they are all so great, all for different reasons! For me, there are spots that rekindled my love for nature, the spot where my husband proposed, and the spot where I…
