Wyalusing State Park is perfectly situated near the southwest corner of the state. The heavily wooded rolling topography offers many great trails showcasing limestone formations, camping, and fantastic views of the Wisconsin River meeting the Mississippi River. Within the park you will also find old Indian Mounds, which are 750+ years old. Continue reading

Next month we will find ourselves visiting Savannah, GA. Originally our trip was planned for San Jose del Cabo in Mexico, however Hurricane Odile changed that. With flight credits that needed to be used we took the opportunity to check Savannah off our list.
We look forward to visiting the oldest city in Georgia. This trip will be our first time spending any time in this part of the country. We are excited to walk around the city known for rich history, beautiful architecture, and it’s numerous parks/squares. Dining options look great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between! We look forward to sharing our experience with you.
Have you been to Savannah? Would you go back?
San Clemente is one of Carla’s favorite places in California. We stopped here to take a break and walk around on our way to Los Angeles from San Diego. During our short visit I can see why Carla enjoys the area so much.
It’s a beautiful little city along the ocean and has a great pier that goes out into the water. During our visit I had my favorite order of fish tacos ever at a restaurant on the pier. It also offers a great vantage point for all the surfers, which the area is well known for surfing. Continue reading
The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s better known attractions, conveniently located between Reykjavik and Keflavik International Airport. The steaming magically blue waters scream at you to enter. Many think the lagoon is natural but it is a manmade feature, the water is the byproduct of the nearby geothermal power plant. The incredibly mineral rich salt water, sourced from deep in the earth, is great for your skin. It is fully cycled through and renewed every two days, keeping the water fresh. However, a lot of people question if it is worth it to visit because it isn’t exactly cheap.
When purchasing flights a direct route can certainly be a bit more expensive. We generally travel pretty frugally and typically book the cheapest available flights. We don’t mind layovers, however it is definitely important to pay attention to how long the layovers are and total trip length. Continue reading
A few weeks prior to us visiting Pewits Nest State Natural Area was when we first heard about it. Seeing one picture had us ready to visit. A little research only furthered that desire. Overall the size of the area is pretty small but it is loaded with beauty and fun. Skillet Creek has carved out a narrow 40 foot gorge in the sandstone, resulting in multiple tiers, small waterfalls, and numerous great swimming spots. Just outside of Devil’s Lake State Park this small nature area is probably often overlooked but certainly not unknown. Continue reading
We covered a lot of ground today, with the main portion of our day being occupied in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. We began the day near Charlevoix at Fisherman’s Island State Park and ended all the way down in Muskegon. The day had a lot of driving but also a lot of stops. Continue reading
