Visiting the Go and Do Good  hotels
 (& beyond!)

For the bros’ fall break this year, we decided to take a road trip to Cincinnati, Ohio to experience a new state and to visit family friends that moved not too far away from the city. Just over the bridge from Kentucky, Cincinnati had a unique feel, offering a big city with lots of options to choose from for tourists. When searching for a hotel that gives back near the city, I discovered The Summit Hotel, a local hotel doing so much good for animals in need.

Imagine arriving from San Jose International Airport in Costa Rica, driving through windy roads to high altitude accommodations snuggled into the cloud forest: El Silencio Lodge. This gorgeous Relais & Chateaux property screams comfort upon arrival, with guests being welcomed by private security, horses in the field and beautiful facilities ahead in view.

The boys and I were so excited to experience Great Wolf Lodge, an indoor water park, in Concord, North Carolina, just outside of Charlotte. While there are many locations of Great Wolf Lodge throughout the country, the Concord location is close enough to us for a day trip. We packed our swimsuits, towels and set off on a fun adventure that we could feel really good about. Not only is Great Wolf Lodge is a fun childhood experience, it also does so much good for its communities around the U.S.

Admittedly, summer is my least favorite season in the Upstate. It is likely due to having spent 18 years living in Florida, wishing for a break from the heat. While I love having the boys home with us more and the freedom to travel and explore our beautiful area, the heat can be deal breaker. […]

Upon searching for hotels that give back in the Seattle area, I discovered The State Hotel, a boutique hotel with an amazing location two blocks form Pikes Place Market and other major attractions in Seattle. We were so excited to visit this charming hotel in-person and to highlight the good that it has done for others in the Pacific Northwest.

Located just two-and-a-half-hours from Sweet Songs Jungle Lodge lies Hopkins Bay Resort, also a Muy’Ono Resorts property, although offering beachfront views instead of the jungle. It was hard not to feel relaxed as we settled into our Two Bedroom Beachview Room, the most perfect accommodations for a family. These rooms boasted two separate bathrooms and bedrooms, a kitchenette and common room as well as an oversized patio with three separate entry storm doors perfect for playing on the porch.

We arrived in the jungle of Western Belize after a two-hour drive from the Belize City airport expectant and excited about all we would experience in Belize. A stop to Sweet Songs Jungle Lodge was the very best way to kick off a family trip to Belize, filled with family fun. Upon arrival, we were invited for a welcome drink and the boys immediately discovered a wooden see-saw that would become one of their favorite forms of entertainment.

What a joy it was to experience Hotel Valley Ho in-person! This iconic, mid-century modern hotel, fun for couples but also super ideal for families, was the perfect way to experience the great state of Arizona. Upon arrival to the hotel, the 1950’s-era theme is vibrant and Hotel Valley Ho pops with culture and fun. The location is ideal, just 15 minutes from the Phoenix International Airport and also within walking distance to all of the shoppes, restaurants and activities that Old Town Scottsdale has to offer.

Spring is a time of freshness and new and that’s exactly what we experienced at Pretty Place, a beautiful erected cross in the mountains in South Carolina. This cross which has been around for dozens of years at the YMCA Camp Greenville, helped the bros and I center our hearts on what is right during […]

The weekend finally arrived where Logan and I were able to spend some time away, just the two of us! We headed on the road, but not far from home, and chose Asheville, North Carolina and the beautiful The Omni Grove Park Inn. Situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains, The Omni Grove Park Inn has been hosting travelers for over a century and many notable figures have chosen this hotel for their stay, too.

We were swept off our feet as we approached the entrance circle of The Omni Homestead Resort and its vastness. The snow-covered buildings and lawns shone off the brick buildings and we felt as if we were entering a winter wonderland. Being President’s Day weekend, it was extra great to see all of the references to past U.S. Presidents and First Ladies as educational opportunities for the boys. We were ready for the fun to begin!

Although Barnsley Resort has been in the directory for what seems like a while, I was completely, pleasantly whisked away to a Christmas Wonderland while visiting Barnsley Resort during the Christmas season. With numerous family-friendly activities to enjoy year-round, Barnsley Resort quickly became a family favorite.
