Travel Tips & Links

We have a collective goal of hitting all 50 states before Punk turns 18, and one or two foreign countries before Kooka is in college. During our adventures (mostly road trips), we've amassed a little bit of wisdom regarding traveling with kids, great places to stop, road schooling and dining out.  We're no experts (half the fun is in the exploring), but these are links to the info we couldn't live without:





500 Places to Take Your Kids Before They Grow Up: We love this book!  Published by Frommers, this guide is full of fun places to dream about.

Roadside America: Cool at kitschy places to visit as you traverse the US highways. 

Roadfood: A website dedicated to the greatest greasy spoons, diners and little-known nosh joints.

Visited States Map:  Create your own map of states (or countries) you've visited.  Create a link and post it on your site.
