PALM SPRINGS – They created spin art on vintage vinyl, felted tiny rocks, and painted T-shirts while screaming (with joy, I think) for hours.
Any surprises? The sugar cane plantations were interesting, but I didn't want to explore more. This trip was about relaxing and planting myself by the pool.
WEST VIRGINIA – My daughter found an empty ballroom and started dancing on the stage. Suddenly, she saw her moving image on the surrounding walls. It was heaven for her.
STOCKBRIDGE, Massachusetts – It was time explore some culture. Because it was raining and there was no laser tag emporium. So we headed to the Norman Rockwell Museum.
PASO ROBLES, California – The new Napa Valley is more laid-back, less expensive, and somehow cooler. Feel free to bring the kids. Everyone wants to unwind on the Central Coast.
THE BERKSHIRES – Hit the refresh button with a last minute escape (take the kids!) to the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.
PENNSYLVANIA, USA – After climbing a vertigo-inducing lookout tower and catching our breath, we got down to the river’s edge and rented boats. The water was a low in July, but a wonderful adventure: bouncy whitewater fun and spectacular sightseeing.
SEVILLE, Spain – Culture. Parks. Long and lazy lunches. Moorish architecture. Iberian tapas. The whole family will refuse to leave Seville once they get there.
DUBLIN – When your business is beauty, what's memorable about Dublin? For 3 Fl. Oz. co-founder Kate Duff, it's a traditional pub. With great music, the nicest people, and REALLY good Guinness.
KANSAS CITY, Missouri – The city has fine art, architecture, and music. It has more than 200 fountains, second only to Rome. It's worth it for the barbeque alone.
