Multigenerational Florida Staycation at B Ocean Resort Ft. Lauderdale

If there’s one thing I know about Boca moms, it’s that they looooove them a local staycation. And, that staycation tastes just a little bit sweeter when you have visitors (IMO). There’s a certain satisfaction that I get from showing off my beautiful state of Florida to out-of-towners. Whether it be the Florida Keys, the Space Coast or even the Gulf Coast, I am proud to be raising my family only a few hours away from some amazing vacation destinations. So when the opportunity to take my in-laws (from Maine) on a multigenerational Florida staycation arose, we decided to go for it!

Get Your Family Dose of Vitamin ‘Sea’ at Universal Orlando Resort

How to Plan a Washington, DC Family Trip from Boca Raton

Washington, DC: Our nation’s capitol. Home of Olivia Pope and Carrie Mathison. A National Treasure. DC is one of those places that you have to visit at least one time as an American. Preferably once when you’re a kid and again as an adult. Your appreciation (or loathing?) for the city changes as you get older. However, there’s something about seeing the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial…you just can’t help but be proud of how far our nation has come. My family and I took a Washington, DC family trip from Boca Raton on our way to Maine this summer.

While I wouldn’t necessarily recommend driving the 14 hours there, taking your family up to DC for a few days is a fun, rewarding and educational experience you’ll never forget. Here are some of my top recommendations for visiting Washington, DC!
