Top Reasons to Visit the St. Louis Zoo

I can’t lie, the boychild and I love going to the zoo! Last year while we were in St. Louis visiting Danyelle, we took the kiddos to the St. Louis Zoo! St. Louis Zoo is a pretty large zoo spread over 90 acres of land with over 18000 animals from 700 species. There’s so much to see that it was hard for us to cover the entire zoo in one day. The kids had a ball! We did everything from checking out the penguins and flamingos to the monkeys. After all, you...

I am sure others feel this way as well, and a website has been created to help people share their travel experiences with one another on a site called TripTogether.com.

Washington, D.C.: Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, & More

I’ve been to the Washington, D.C. area many times, but up until now, hadn’t done the tourist thing. The first time I visited the area was back in 1998 when I was visiting a friend in Alexandria, Virginia. I don’t even remember if we went to Washington to see the sites or not–it was more about us spending time with one another than it was about seeing historic items. But that was then and this is now. I am an avid reader and historian, so of course...

Memorial Day Weekend on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City

During Memorial Day Weekend, I trekked to Atlantic City for some casino fun and to take the scene and sites on the Boardwalk.

As much as I love Vegas, Atlantic City gave me the opportunity to see a different perspective. Yes, there were plenty of casinos and shopping and...
