Two Great Spring Break Trips from KC

Spring break is a great chance for a family getaway. Sometimes it’s nice just to slip away for a few days and take in some sights. These are two of our favorites for a simple and fun weekend getaway—and both sneak in a little education too!

Skiing Utah

Nestled in Utah’s Wasatch Mountain Range, Park City is one of the best little ski towns in America, offering sweeping landscape views of the valley below. As big fans of Colorado skiing, our family was a little uncertain about venturing outside our customary Centennial State resorts. I’m here to say that now I’m a huge fan of Park City.

Tips for Healthy Family Travel

Summer is the perfect time to travel with family, experience new things and make new memories. You may be a long weekend traveler or a cross-country traveler.

Weekend Getaway: Omaha

Just a little over 3 hours away, Omaha is the perfect weekend getaway for Kansas City families. Their Henry Doorly Zoo is phenomenal (and KC Zoo FOTZ members get 50% off admission), the Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum is a historic treasure, my kids had a blast at the Omaha Children's Museum, and Lauritzen Gardens is lovely.

Extraordinary Accommodations

Our nation’s capital boasts tons of free museums and monuments to explore, and we can share some tips to simplify planning a vacation to this national treasure. So here are my top picks, as well as insider insights for a family who wants to see our nation’s capital.

Three Favorite Spring Day Trips from Kansas City

Whether you’re looking for an afternoon getaway or a weekend adventure, these are a few of our favorite trips to take in the month of May.

Living the Dream on the Disney Dream

I don’t enjoy road trips or car travel. Train rides are okay, but a little too slow for my liking. For many years I refused to fly because of a gripping fear. But get me on a boat, and I’m in heaven. The movement of the water is soothing to me, and I feel very relaxed on boats. So why did it take me 44 years to go on my first cruise?
