Ann Arbor For A Midwest Weekend Of Student Cool

College towns have a built-in advantage when you’re traveling with teenagers and, with its sky-high cool quotient, Ann Arbor, Michigan is the king of college towns. Home to the University of Michigan, it is hip enough for adolescents with lots of activities geared to tweens, teens and students, yet sophisticated enough for savvy moms and dads. Considering that the year-round population is just over 100,000, there is a surprising range of activities that will appeal to a variety of interests.

A Quebec City Weekend By Rail

Enjoy charm, history, music, adventure and great food - all with a French accent -during a weekend rail trip to Quebec City in Quebec province, Canada.

Many Americans think of Francophone Canada as a way to get a slice of Europe that's much closer to home, but you'll soon find that it has a unique charm of its own. Quebec City (QC) is a perfect example. Recently we had the opportunity to visit our neighbor to the north, and it was fantastique, albeit too brief.

A Poconos Waterpark That's Worth the Drive

Camelbeach is the Camelback Mountain ski resort's summer attraction and even on a grey day, when no amount of will-power could get the mercury above the mid-60s, Camelbeach proved to be fun, lively and family-friendly with plenty of activities that kept us moving instead of shivering!  After checking in with the friendly staff at The Chateau Resort, we made the very quick trip over to Camelbeach where our first stop would be a tour of the construction site that promises to be the largest and most versatile ski and indoor-waterpark resort in the Poconos.

Should Kids and Casinos Mix on Vacation?

When the Mount Airy Casino Resort opened in the Poconos last year, I wondered if would it be a good place to take the kids. The Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania are a well-known family vacation destination, only a few hours from New York City and Philadelphia, and are something of a playground for families residing in these cities.
