Top 10 Reasons to Visit Tybee Island Georgia

When many people think of a Georgia vacation, they think of old plantations, magnolia trees lining cobblestone roads, and sweet tea.  Just 13 miles east of Savannah, GA you can immerse yourself in a whole different kind of Georgia. A short 30 minute drive and you can find yourself cruising along streets lined by painted sea turtle signs, dotted with little whole-in-the-wall restaurants with the best food you never knew about, and miles of sandy beaches along the Atlantic coastline. This is Tybee Island, Georgia, well-known to locals, but virtually unknown to many out-of-state visitors.

Weeki Wachee River – Best Place to Kayak in Florida

Best Place to kayak in florida

Last month the blog turned 2 years old! What better way to commemorate the occasion than to do something outdoorsy! I decided to return to the best place to kayak in Florida (also my favorite paddle location) for a kayak excursion on the Weeki Wachee River with my Outdoorsy Diva and Friends group. (Not a member of my group yet? You should be! We do fun stuff.) For this event I reserved our group kayak trip with Weeki Wachee Kayaking. I used a different outfitter on previous excursions, but their times tend to be a bit more restrictive and just wouldn’t work for this trip because we wouldn’t be able to get there until the afternoon. A friend referred me to Weeki Wachee Kayaking, which has leased a launch on the river on the property of Weeki Wachee Christian Camp.  (Weeki Wachee Kayaking provided a free kayak rental in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinion of my experience. Full Disclosures.)

Atlanta Glamping Adventure

atlanta glamping adventure

Ahhhh Atlanta, also known as the Hollywood of the South.  I love visiting Atlanta because there is an abundance of things to do and I’ve always had friends to visit who live there. My son and I have visited the MLK memorial, the amazing whale sharks at the Georgia Aquarium, and we’ve done the Snow Mountain winter wonderland at Stone Mountain. What you may not know is that Atlanta is a hop skip and a jump away from some pretty sweet places to get your nature on.  (See past post about Chattahoochee tubing and Anna Ruby Falls.) In fact, there are at least 8 Georgia state parks within an hour to hour and a half driving distance.  Read More »

A Camping We Will Go – First Time Camping Experience

Picture it…Florida….Spring Break….March of 2013.   We were eager, excited, and downright ecstatic about our very first camping trip.   We were also novices, naïve, and never expected what happened on this trip.   It was challenging but very memorable and whole lot of fun.  Most things didn’t really go according to plan so this trip goes down as one of the best misadventures we have ever survived.
