With its natural beauty, abundance of wildlife and something surprising around every corner, Yellowstone National Park is a destination we, as a family, highly recommend. After booking our trip, next on my mind was what to pack for visiting Yellowstone. In this post I’m sharing with you our Yellowstone packing list to help you prepare for your own visit in summer. I’ve even put together a free printable to help you get ready for your own visit to Yellowstone.
For many years, Yellowstone National Park was top of our bucket list. Having seen a documentary about it, we knew one day we would visit. However, we had long thought of it as somewhere to go when our son was older. But, in 2016 we took a chance and, on a whim, booked flights, car hire and accommodation to make our dream of visiting this amazing place a reality. In this guide to visiting Yellowstone with kids I’ll tell you how to get there, where to stay and the best things to see and do in this unbelievable National Park.
While we were in Portland at the end of our USA road trip holiday, we were kindly given complimentary entry to Oregon Zoo in order to review it. In this post you’ll learn what we got up to in our Oregon Zoo review, and discover some hints and tips to make your visit to the Washington Park Portland Zoo a great one.
When investigating things to do in Portland with kids, I checked with the people in the know, members of some family travel Facebook groups, and many recommended we pay a visit to the Portland Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, or OMSI as it is also know. Here is our account of visiting OMSI with kids and whether it is worth it.
The last stop on our two-week USA road trip last year was Portland. I’ve spoken before about why we wanted to visit Portland but one of the aims while there was to have some down time after a lot of driving and to spend some quality time together as a family, out of the car. Our plan was to find fun things to do in Portland with kids, so our son could have some fun, and one things on our bucket list for the city was visiting the Portland Children’s Museum.
