About Me & My Family

I'm Gwyneth, mom of two girls, aged 15 and 11, who loves to travel in the Southeast US and beyond. I love to be on the go, whether visiting old favorites or discovering new places. I find that after each trip I have learned more about my children, traveling with my children, and traveling in general, and I hope our experiences will help others make the most of their travel adventures.

Ruby Falls
1720 S. Scenic Hwy,
Lookout Mountain,
Tennessee 37409
"Breathtaking!"
We had a great time at these falls, hidden deep inside Lookout Mountain. My girls had a wonderful time in the caverns, and our tour guide was great. BUT, for families with young kids, make sure you know what you are in for. Tight passages, no real way to "escape" when a kid is uncomfortable, no room for strollers.

Tennessee Aquarium
One Broad Street,
Chattanooga,
Tennessee 37402
"Worth the trip"
I've always loved the Tennessee Aquarium, and now it has grown even larger! Chloe, my little naturalist, just can't get enough. Despite having been to the Monterey Aquarium just a month earlier, she had to find every turtle, fish and sea horse there. She loved the touch pool. Unfortunately, we only had a fleeting glimpse of the sea otters. Both girls liked the "bubble heads", but Chloe found the other kids to be a bit pushy. Next time, the girls want to bring swimsuits to play in the "waterpark" out from of the aquarium.

Chattanooga Choo Choo
1400 Market St,
Chattanooga,
Tennessee 37402
"Sleeping on a train"
I've always wanted to stay at the Choo Choo, so I surprised the kids with a night in a train car while we were in Chattanooga. Though the hotel is fairly basic in terms of amenities, we had a great time sleeping in a train car. The pools were fun for the kids too. The breakfast buffet was fairly generic, but since the kids ate free, we were quite satisfied.

"Four Corners Folk Festival"
The folk and bluegrass music festival takes place outdoors on Reservoir Hill in downtown Pagosa Springs, Colo. The venue is beautiful and in-town. Pagosa Springs itself is located in southwest Colorado’s San Juan Mountains, surrounded by the three million-acre San Juan National Forest, and adjacent to the largest contiguous wilderness area in the nation, the Weminuche Wilderness. Pagosa Springs is home to the largest and hottest natural mineral outflow in the world, with the springs noted for their healing and restorative qualities. Visitors can choose between three downtown soaking/bathing facilities that offer indoor and outdoor pools.

High Sierra Music Festival | kids travel, kids activities
High Sierra Music Festival
Fairgrounds Rd.,
Quincy,
California 95971
"High Sierra Music Festival"
High Sierra is in its 21st year, so that must prove we know a thing or two about logistics of producing a music festival. Our festival takes place at a County Fairgrounds (Plumas County) so there is lots of infrastructure (real toilets, real showers etc). We also now offer professional, certified childcare (for a fee) with "the Rockin Nannies" who offer games, movies and other activities for the kids at night so mom and dad can have some quality time by themselves.
