Fly Me Away

By Meghan Gesswein |

I love to travel. My husband does not. I am determined to raise children with a sense of adventure and a love for discovering new places.

I spend a lot of time thinking about where I would take them, if we didn’t have time limitations and if money were no object. Sadly, those two things mean our vacation options are generally based around visits to the Grandparents. Which is cool, but Sacramento isn’t exactly what I have in mind when I think about introducing my children to new cultures and scenery.

No offense, Sacramento. I love you and your tomatoes and your proximity to both San Francisco and Lake Tahoe.

But, there are places outside of California that I want to visit. I hope that, at some point, we can find the time and finances to travel to at least a few of the places on my Family Vacation Bucket List.

    I would love to be able to take my family to Hawaii, on a Disney Cruise, New York City, Washington DC, Disney World, and drive all the way to Wilmington, NC on the 40. Hopefully, one day, we could make at least one of these things happen.

    Traveling with kids is definitely harder, but it’s worth it! This site is AWESOME for family travel inspiration!

    Gotta say I love your list – I’ve either been to or really, really want to go to almost all the places listed! (Bet you can guess which aren’t exactly on my bucket list… ;)
