About Me & My Family
I'm a mother
4 Kids 2-10 years old boys and girls

My name is Marisa Langford. We are a big family that loves to explore! We have 4 kids and are always on the hunt for our next adventure! My kids are so eager to try new things, see new places and I love to share what I have learned with others. Having 4 kids makes me think about so many details before, during and after our travels. I am a seasoned traveler and hope that my travel genes get passed along to my children!

A Place We'd Love To Visit
Favorite Vacation Memory
We traveled to Rosemary Beach with our ENTIRE family! It was relaxing, fun, beautiful and it was because we made the most of being together. I think that making the most of being where you are with good people make for the best memories!
Worst Travel Moment With My Kids:
We were headed to Disney with our kids and it was a first time for one of the little ones. She was so excited to see Mickey that she jumped up in excitement yelled and Mickey came over to say "hi". I went to snap the picture and my camera died. I had the same picture with everyone else and I missed it. I have it in memory, but learned my lesson about extra batteries!

Annie the Musical | kids travel, kids activities
Annie the Musical
Straz Center for the Performing Arts,
1010 N. W.C. MacInnes Place,
Florida 33602
"Musicals for Children at the Straz Center are AWESOME!"
The Staz Center is the premier place in Tampa to see Broadway Shows as well as local theater in the Tampa Bay area. They have a Wee Folk series that opens up children to theatre and is geared towards children ages 2-6. Many of the Broadway musicals that are brought to Tampa for that years season are wonderful for children to see. Annie the Musical might not be playing when you visit, but check into see what Broadway shows will be playing. Many places to have dinner on Franklin Street, just a few blocks over.

Cinebistro | kids travel, kids activities
Hyde Park Village,
1609 W. Swann Avenue,
"Date Night- Parents Only."
No kids allowed. Great place to escape with out the kid for an afternoon or evening movie. Right in Hyde Park Village, this upscale movie theatre will have you relaxing in plush seats and enjoying lunch or dinner while you watch the show. The food is amazing and adult beverages are available for purchase too.

Glazer Children's Museum | kids travel, kids activities
Glazer Children's Museum
Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park,
Ashley Drive,
Florida 33602
"Best Exploring Museum for Toddlers!"
Let your kids get lost in learning through hands on exploring through imaginative play. So much to do for crawlers, toddlers, preschoolers and elementary school kids. Bigger elementary school kids might say it's for "babies" but they will have fun playing too. Inside so you can escape the heat on a hit summer day. There is a Subway downstairs and a HUGE park right outside for a picnic. Bring your bathing suits as there is also a splash area!

Art classes during morning times and special activities too- check the calendar.

Channelside Bay Plaza
615 Channelside Dr # 117,
"Getting better every year..."
The Channelside area of Tampa is growing each year as a new businesses continue to make a home here and new restaurants continue to open. The loss of the movie theatre was a blow to the area, but Splitsville, Cold Stone Creamery and Hooters continue to bring people that are "cruise bound" into the district while they wait to board their cruise. Channelside is also situated next to the Port of Tampa where all the national cruise ships arrive and depart. Plenty of parking all over (long term too). A short walk from Channelside to the Florida Aquarium and also Amalie Arena (formerly the St.Pete Times Forum).

It's fun to walk around and enjoy a quick lunch, but not too much to see there unless you are just passing through.

Plans to revitalize are in the works, so it should be getting better soon.
