Road Trip Getaway to Savannah

Savannah! Knowing that I lived in Georgia for a few years before, you probably expect me to say that I have visited Savannah several times. Truth is, that we had to move away for me to become interested in visiting. For whatever reason, we always traveled South, to Florida. On this last trip to Georgia, I decided that Savannah was a MUST! And I’m glad that we did it.

Day 1 –  We arrived and checked in at Hotel Indigo on Bay Street. The staff was welcoming and resourceful. The room was clean, modern and had a great view. After deciding what our night would look like, we went downstairs to Five Oaks Taproom for drinks and walked over to River St. for dinner at Chart House. We then walked around town a bit and called it a night – it’s age catching up with us. Just kidding! It’s really just parenthood. 🙂

Day 2 – We had made plans to check out the East Coast waters. 😉 So, we headed to Tybee Island for lunch and decided to try StingRay’s Seafood – the photo doesn’t do it justice; it was great! The staff was friendly, the food tasty and the beers cold. Great environment out on the patio. I recommend this place if you’re in the area – it is also very affordable but you do have to pay for metered parking.

After our meal, we spent the day at the beach in Tybee Island. We headed back to the hotel to get some rest before heading back out to experience Savannah’s night life. We walked around while deciding where to grab a bite and even though it was raining, lots of people were out and about too.

After dinner, we stopped at Wet Willies – River Street for frozen drinks. We took those to go and went to City Market, where we asked the locals about the best bars and night clubs. We ended up spending most of the night at Tree House Savannah – the atmosphere and music were great. 😉

Day 3 – This was our last day in Savannah – bittersweet – glad to be going back to see the girls but sad that our vacation had come to an end. Before leaving we stopped for lunch at Dubb’s Pub. Then, stopped at Below Zero – recommended by a blogger friend. Glad that I was able to visit, I love ice cream – and rolled ice cream was a cool experience.

Well, there you have it. A summary of our Savannah getaway. If you plan to head east, make sure to jot Savannah as an option. It’s a beautiful little city. Plus, now you have a few places to check out. 😉

A Day in Atlanta – Georgia Aquarium Adventure

First, are we friends on Instagram? If we’re not! Get to it. You’re missing out on all the live shares of my adventures. Like this trip to the Georgia Aquarium. Yes! It all happens there first and then I come to The Blog to spill details on everything. You can find me under Thirtyminusone_blog. 😉

So, last month I spent over three weeks in Georgia. It’s where my family lives and was home for a few years and where my husband and I met. We still have friends there and love going back to get away from the city life – ok, I do live in the suburbs but it’s a complete scenery change.

Georgia Aquarium

While I didn’t have any big plans for our time there. The Georgia Aquarium was a must. Why? Because it’s simply amazing! And because we have been taking our oldest since she was little. Now that she’s six, I thought she would appreciate it all a little more. And because our two year old is more aware of her surroundings, loves ocean creatures and I thought she would also enjoy it.

My husband stayed behind because he had to work, and the day that he flew into Atlanta, is the day that we choose for our adventure. After picking him up from the airport, we headed to the Aquarium. Buying the tickets was a seamless process, we bought them online which came with a savings; these were then emailed to me and easily scanned for us to access the Aquarium.

A Day in Atlanta

I was pleasantly surprised with the Dolphin exhibit. This was a new one for us, since we had not visited in a little over a year. Now, the tropical exhibit is hands down my favorite – it has always been. It’s just so colorful! And being able to talk about it with my six year old made it a little more special. She gets me, and was as fascinated as I was.

We spent a few hours there and then walked through Centennial Park before heading to Hard Rock Café for a bite. A few years back while in London, we visited what was the first Hard Rock Café ever, and since started collecting their glasses. Each time we visit a new city we try to stop by, get a bite and take a souvenir glass with us.

In all honesty, we didn’t do a whole lot, but it was the perfect family fun day. Now, if you’re ever in the Atlanta area, you have a few activities that you can add to your itinerary. You’re Welcome! 😉

Distressed High Waisted Shorts & Our Galveston Beach Adventure

Houston = Home! For six years now and I love it here! Oh the city life – though I really live in the suburbs. 😉 But it’s nice to have a major city close by, and even better to have a beach near by. I will admit that while Galveston Beach is not the most sought after beach location and its water may not be crystal clear. I absolutely love taking a trip our there. Just breathing in that ocean air brings back so many good memories.

Distressed High Waisted Shorts & Our Galveston Beach Adventure

So, I try to go as often as we can. While, I am more of a beach love, my husband would rather go to a lake or river. On this trip we agreed on the beach because the girls get to build sand castles, run along the shore, and play with the waves. Life doesn’t get better than this. 🙂

Our Galveston Beach Adventure

Galveston also has a lot to offer, great beach shops – in case that you forget any beach necessities -restaurants offering delicious food, ice cream shops, the pier, and much more… Some of my favorite places are The Spot, Saltgrass, Shrimp N Stuff, and Frios Gourmet Pops, just to name a few.

Getaway to Destin’s Sandy Beaches

Living in Georgia had its perks, we were right on the border with Alabama and only hours from Florida-Georgia line. This led to many visits to Panama city in the past. And our most recent, a trip Destin, Florida. We planned all the details of this trip about two weeks prior to traveling. As a birthday celebration for our oldest.

Let me tell you, it was a great trip. So, keep reading to check on my all recommendations…

Destin Beach

Lodging

I will admit that because we stayed with the Destin Army Recreation Area; I am not familiar with the service or quality of other hotels in the area. But if you are a military family, I recommend that you check them out. The room was spacious, there was ample parking, lots of recreational options and great location – right off the water and close to other Destin amenities.

Breakfast

If you are in Destin or near, you have got to check out the Donut hole. It’s a diner style restaurant which I could compare to IHOP; but better.

Panama: Part III – Bocas del Toro

Panama: Part III – Bocas del Toro

If you have been following along my Panama adventure, thanks for coming back to read the last post in the series! If you’re just joining me, thanks for visiting, you can catch up here.

On the previous post, I shared details about a five-point tour that we did upon arriving in Bocas del Toro. That tour was great for two reasons. One, it was an all day event and two, we got to see a lot more than we would have on our own.

Panama: Part II – Bocas del Toro

Before our trip to Panama one thing was certain – aside from visiting friends and family – we wanted to take on an adventure. The kind of adventure that goes on your bucket list and you feel accomplished to scratch off once you’ve done it. Bocas del Toro was just that for us, one heck of an adventure. Am I longing to go back? Absolutely! Am I trying to persuade people to visit? Maybe…

And if I was asked to sum up Bocas del toro in as few words as possible. I’d say it is Panama’s hidden gem.
