Atlanta Streets Closed to Cars on Sunday

The streets of Atlanta close down to automobile traffic and open up to all sorts of new possibilities at this time of year for Atlanta Streets Alive.

Beautiful Boston Views From Skywalk Observatory

I was about 11 or 12 when, on a family day trip to Boston, I first experienced a bird’s eye view of the city from the top of a skyscraper. We’d gone to the observation deck of the 60-story John Hancock Tower, and I was awestruck at the vast panorama of streets and buildings that spread out below.

Unusual Museums Throughout the US

Unusual Museums Throughout the US Most museums are buildings that serve as vaults for some of humanity's most culturally significant art and artifacts. Places like the Louvre in Paris, which houses the Mona Lisa, and the Museum of Natural History with its fantastic dioramas are classic examples of what most people think of when museums come to mind. Unfortunately, there are a large number of items and industries that have cultural significance that just can't find a home in a “normal” museum. Luckily, instead of being lost to history forever, there are plenty of unusual museums across the U.S. that cater to even the most obscure interests and cultural taste. read more »

Planning a Family Getaway: Disneyland Attractions in Anaheim

Disneyland Attractions One of the most “magical” and family-friendly destinations to keep in mind is Disneyland in Anaheim, Ca. The theme park was opened in 1955 and conceptualized by the “man behind the mouse” himself, Walt Disney. To this day, the 160-acre expanse delights over 16 million guests each year, bringing families face-to-face with the timeless characters they grew up with and the friendly new faces their own children have come to love. The park plays host to a number of iconic rides and attractions. Disneyland tickets are available year-round in the perpetually sunny Magic Kingdom, making it an ideal place for a family vacation. If you’re thinking about mingling with Mickey and Minnie on the West coast, here are a few of our favorite spots that offer a little something for everyone. read more »
