Yes, I would say these things even if they hadn’t welcomed This Little Home of Mine there with media passes. ha! In fact, we didn’t even end up using our media passes, because we took advantage of their preschool program and then purchased season passes for the rest of us. The pricing was a no-brainer for sure! We’ll be heading back soon~

If you live anywhere near this favorite spot of ours, I would highly recommend making the trip. Even with little ones, we were able to experience so much – letting them run around in open fields as needed, of course.

My best tip for traveling with kids? Give them breaks before they start letting you know they need them – and snacks, lots and lots of snacks.

Another special part about this trip was exploring some of the local parks in the area. We simply Googled nearby parks and hit two or three different ones.
