7 Things to Do in Zanesville, Ohio

0

After a super-fun overnight stay and safari tour at Nomad Ridge at The Wilds in Cumberland, Ohio, we drove a half-hour west to Zanesville, Ohio for some sight-seeing and lots of eating in this city of over 25,000 people. Early in the century, it was once known as the “Clay City” and the “Pottery Capital of the World”.  I had told you that we’d be eating our way through Ohio, and we did. With little less than 10 waking hours in Zanesville, Ohio, we found ourselves eating in four (4!) places, and walking off our calories visiting three spots. Here’s our 7…

Review: Glamping at Nomad Ridge The Wilds in Ohio + 9 Tips

4

For our 15th anniversary, we’ve had the opportunity to go glamping and on a safari. That’s right. Like I said, glamping is the only kind of camping I would ever do, and what’s great about it is that you don’t have to travel overseas to go on one. Instead, you can go glamping at Nomad Ridge, The Wilds in Ohio. The Wilds is easy to get to. Just fly into Columbus, Ohio and then its an easy 1 1/2 hour drive to Cumberland, Ohio. The Wilds combines science, education, hands-on experiences and one-of-a-kind adventures like safaris, zip-lining, horseback riding,…

New Food Trucks at Governors Island

0

Lower Manhattan is bursting with more food options than ever before. During the summer, we are big fans of heading over to Governor’s Island for a family bike ride, some arts & crafts and eating. This year, Governor’s Island has taken outdoor dining to the next level with seven new food trucks and tents. In 2012, Governors Island started a multi-year $260 million transformation with over 100 acres of parks and public spaces. Just in time for the summer, construction has finally been completed on the first 30 acres. Every Saturday and Sunday this summer through September 28th the gourmet…

Glamping and Eating our Way through Ohio for Our Anniversary

0

This year marks the 15th Wedding Anniversary to The Hubby. Our normal way of celebrating is usually a kiss in the morning and a “Happy Anniversary”. More often than not, I hate to admit, is that we forget our anniversary. Not joking. And we have two: one in June for our City Hall wedding, which was then followed a year later for the church wedding the following May. So, we actually have two wedding anniversaries, which gives us two chances to remember every year. But life just gets in the way. This year will be different. We were given the…

El Vez: Family Friendly Restaurant in Battery Park City

0

When we first moved to Lower Manhattan a decade ago, it was extremely hard to find a family friendly restaurant that wasn’t considered fast food, but wasn’t overly expensive. We definitely had to venture above Chambers Street into TriBeCa or to the West Village and Chelsea for family friendly choices. Fast-forward ten years and we have a shopping and restaurant boom in downtown New York City and it’ll be extremely hard for our family to venture anywhere north of Chambers Street. Enter El Vez, a family friendly restaurant in Battery Park City on Vesey Street. It’s in a perfect location,…

Luxury Travel at The Ritz-Carlton Aspen Highlands

0

This past spring break, we were so fortunate to stay at The Ritz-Carlton Residences in Aspen Highlands because a friend of mine let us use her time-share.  I had done research and knew that it was an amazing travel experience, but I didn’t know how lus it  truly was. This was the first time that we had spent at a Ritz-Carlton property and it is an unforgettable experience. Below are the reasons why we love luxury travel at The Ritz-Carlton Aspen Highlands: 1. A Home-Away-from-Home. So, the residence is big. It’s actually bigger than our own apartment in New York City! It…

Family Activity in New York: Dinosaur Safari at The Bronx Zoo

0

The last time I was at the Bronx Zoo, it was over 30 years ago and I was with my grandma. It was a hot, sticky New York City day and we took a long NYC bus ride over from her apartment in Washington Heights. Living in New York City for over 22 years with two young girls, I have yet to go back (except for one spectacular wedding!) and experience The Bronx Zoo of the 21st century because from what I’m hearing it’s got amazing, interactive experiences. What is the Dinosaur Safari at The Bronx Zoo? For example, back…

10 Reasons to go Spring Skiing at Snowmass Ski Resort

2

For spring break, we had the opportunity to use a friend’s residence at the Ritz-Carlton in Aspen Highlands in Aspen, Colorado. I heard about people going spring skiing before, but we’ve never had the experience as a family. My husband and I asked some avid skiers about what they thought about spring skiing and got mixed reviews — simply because it depended on the weather. Since we had a fabulous place to stay, we were going to Aspen whether there was snow. But being a skiing family, we were crossing our fingers. We were delightfully surprised when we heard that the…
