The Perfect Girls Day Out at The Golden Nugget Las Vegas!

Monday, August 22, 2016
Heather

I like to consider myself a Vegas expert; while I don’t normally consider myself an expert of any destination, we have been to Vegas seven times already this year, that’s right… seven times! And we aren’t done, we will visit at least a few more times. My last visit was for pure pampering! I decided to have a girls’ getaway, solely focused on relaxing. While the Strip can be fun, it’s not the place to go to unwind; if you are looking to chill at a slower pace, you will want to head to The Golden Nugget downtown!

Our Kids’ Idaho Adventure – And why they can’t wait to return!

Some destinations you just know will be a hit with your kids (i.e. Orlando, Anaheim, etc.) and others you know are more places you want to go and not so much a destination for the kids (i.e. that vineyard you’ve always wanted to visit in Napa Valley). On our recent trip to Idaho though, I really didn’t know what to expect and how it would tailor to our kids’ needs and interests. I knew we had some great kid-friendly activities planned, but I wasn’t sure how much they would like Idaho as a destination.

The Ultimate Friends Vegas Weekend Off the Strip

There is a huge difference in planning a friends Vegas getaway in your 20’s, and doing the same in your 30’s. My sister in-law learned this the hard way when she (in her mid-30’s) went on a weekend trip with a bunch of her 20 year old friends. By the end of the weekend she just wanted to crawl in a hole. Now don’t get me wrong, us 30 year olds can still party; but we need some downtime too, and if you can throw in some relaxation, it makes for a perfect getaway.

Our Romantic Venice experience in Long Beach!

Monday, August 1, 2016
Heather

We had many amazing activities planned on our recent trip to Long Beach, but none were quite as unique and special as our Gondola ride through the waterways of Naples, Long Beach. Our 14th wedding anniversary  coincided with our trip, and we knew we wanted it to be a spectacular anniversary. We weren’t sure what to expect, and even though my husband has been to Venice, neither of us had been on a Gondola before.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food and ways of life.

We love watching them learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world for the first time and made memories that will last a lifetime.
