About Me & My Family
I'm a mother
2 Kids 1-5 years old boys and girls

the arrival of O-dogg completely rocked planet lee back in 2007. we've always loved to travel and got a a better work-out carrying all the extra gear with the extra kid. fast forward 5 years, we were just inches away from being able to board a plane with only carry-ons when KK decided to hit the scene. now we're back to walking the airplane aisles with a toddler.

Worst Travel Moment With My Kids:
Being in a vacation rental with all of our extended family for the holidays. 13 people in all. Was supposed to be a wonderful week of fun, but 10 out of 13 got struck with the stomach virus for a week straight. The lowlights can be summed up in: 4 trips to the ER, 2 IVs for our one year old nephew and a concussion from freeze tag for my brother in-law. What a start to the new year!

Tide Pools for Kids in North Shore Massachusetts

If you love the outdoors, but don't want to just hit up another beach with the kids, head over to one of these cool tide pools. Full of barnacles, anemones, fish, crabs and more, kids love discovering all that lives and breath in these tiny ecosystems. Here are the best places to find tidepools on the Northern shore of Massachusetts (Salem, Marblehead, Cape Ann, Beverly).


Dolliber Cove
Marblehead, Massachusetts

From Crowninshield Island, families can walk to Dolliber Cove during low tide and explore its tidal pools, a small sandy beach, a field, a salt marsh and a wooded hilltop.


Chandler Hovey Park
Marblehead, Massachusetts



50 Winter Island Road
Salem, Massachusetts



55 Ober Street
Beverly, Massachusetts

During low tide, you'll find lots of small tide pools to explore here and it's open to the public unlike the other Beverly, MA option.


Ocean Street
Manchester, Massachusetts

Located out in Cape Ann.


West Street
Beverly, Massachusetts

With all the rocks on this "beach", the tidepools here are brimming with sealife for kids to uncover. Unfortunately, it's only open to the public in the fall through the spring and not during the summer months unless you're a special Beverly resident.


352 Lafayette Street
Salem, Massachusetts

The laboratory is located at Salem State College and houses on an 8-acre tidal pond called Smith Pool. This facility is open to school visits. Call for more information.
