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.

How to Plan a St. Petersburg & Clearwater Family Road Trip from South Florida

I recently wrote about our “good ol’ fashioned family road trip” to St. Petersburg and Clearwater Beach, Florida in my column on BocaMag.com. Road trips are officially back in high fashion thanks to this lingering pandemic! One area of Florida we hadn’t hit as a family yet? Tampa Bay’s gulf coast area—specifically Clearwater Beach and St. Petersburg (St. Pete to the locals). I was excited to visit a section of the state I hadn’t explored yet during spring break. On our long weekend St. Pete and Clearwater family road trip itinerary? Pirates, dolphins, a little Dali and some hands-on discovery of Florida’s gulf coast!

4 Tips for Planning a Trip Away From Your Boca Kids

Every Boca mom and dad needs a vacation. Whether you’re a stay-at-home parent, a working parent, or you both have jobs that add to the stress of parenthood; a vacation is the best way to take time off and care for yourselves and your relationship. An hour of alone time taking a bath in your bathroom isn’t a vacation. While small breaks can be helpful, a vacation can help you rejuvenate so that you have the energy to be the best parent you can be.

While you may feel a little guilty leaving the kids behind so you can enjoy a break, there are tons of benefits to traveling without them. Not only is it good for you and your relationship, but it’s also good for children to be away from their parents from time to time.

Like traveling with your kids, taking a trip away from your Boca kids takes a fair amount of planning. Here are a few tips to help you plan your trip away from your children! Continue reading 4 Tips for Planning a Trip Away From Your Boca Kids
