3 Great Tips To Make The Most Of Your Outdoor Family Adventure

Great Tips

As Seen On Monster Fish & Game. Traveling in the great outdoors here in the USA is not only an amazing way to spend time with your family but it’s also a great opportunity to discover and learn so much about the world around us. As a single mom who’s taken on the goal of seeing all 50 states with my kids (after 10 years and 14 trips we are at 42), I can tell you that adventure and learning can take place in … [Read more...]

Big Island Eco Adventures (Kapa’au)


So one adventure my kids and I have been dying to try is zip lining.  The Hawaiian Islands have a ton of places to do this somewhat new and trendy activity so if your dead set on doing it (and you should because it's a ton of fun), see where it best fits into your schedule.  For us, that happened to be on the Big Island and we opted for and outfit called Big Island Eco Adventures who were just fantastic!

Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World (Prattville)

Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama

If you’ve read my other itineraries, you know how fun Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World can be. Yvonne’s kids had never been inside one of these and were blown away at the size of this enormous store which sells everything for hunting, fishing, camping, and cooking under one roof. The kids could not believe the size of the fish in the huge tanks which represent all the local fish that you can catch.  We all tried on … [Read more...]

Diamond Lake Resort (Diamond Lake)

Diamond Lake Resort

Not too far from Crater Lake is Diamond Lake which is home to the Diamond Lake Resort, a really cool recreation area to just hang out, relax, and have some fun on the water. Mind you, we had an RV so we ended up camping here for the night, but you don't need a camper to hang out and enjoy a day out on the water or stay at their lodge-(I didn't stay there so I couldn't tell you what it was like).  We rented a pontoon … [Read more...]
