A couple of weeks ago our family was in the very unusual situation of having absolutely no Saturday plans. It was also raining cats and dogs which prevented us from our go-to plans of visiting a local park. With a rambunctious 5-year-old who is NOT cool with watching TV all day we checked the RCM […]
My family loves watching movies together, and it’s one of our favorite summer past-times. Last week we opted for a new experience, and headed west into Athens to visit the Cinemagic Drive-In.

Huntsville’s a great place for live music, and there’s no shortage of free, family-friendly concerts this summer – just take a look at the “Summer Concerts” tab on our Summer Activities Guide. But I’ll let you in on a little secret… there’s a concert series in town that’s not too crowded, has plenty of shade, […]
Summer vacation is my favorite time of the year. It is when the restrictions of travel are lifted for my children and we are free to go where the wind blows us! Last summer I decided to take the kiddos on mini field trips to keep things exciting and to explore the fun places that […]
