I travel for the Kids

Turks and Caicos Is the Perfect Caribbean Island

TURKS AND CAICOS – If we’re giving points for convenience, ease of planning, water gorgeousness, and we-know-how-to-roll-out-the-welcome-mat-for-visitors, I’m giving the blue ribbon to T&C.

A Few Days in Seville

SEVILLE, Spain – Culture. Parks. Long and lazy lunches. Moorish architecture. Iberian tapas. The whole family will refuse to leave Seville once they get there. 

How to Ski Apache-Style

RUIDOSO, New Mexico – New Mexico is an unlikely state for a ski trip. And Ruidoso isn't fancy. If it were a shoe, it would be a Hush Puppy. No frills, but reliable and gets the job done.

Paradise Found: Sugar Beach, St. Lucia

St. Lucia – A recent renovation has turned the new Caribbean resort into a completely low-key and casual sybaritic experience where your every whim is attended.

A Few Days in Vail with the Family

VAIL, Colorado – After a season of East Coast meteorological woes, one Connecticut family did the smart thing: They went to Vail. And found many reasons to go back.

Tacos and Tequila with Grandma

SAYULITA, Mexico – The adventurous grandma picks the place, the lucky kids follow along. 3 Fl. Oz. co-founder Alexi Mintz discovers the secluded and beautiful Riviera Nayarit town. 

The Kid Loves the Dude

WYOMING, USA – He will want nothing more than to ride for the next week, just like the rest of us. We head off into the big wide open. The Snowy Range mountains are in the distance, and the sky is painted a shade of blue I’ve never seen.
