I hate winter, so to combat the long stretch of cold ahead, I decided to book a fall Florida getaway with baby girl. We love visiting Orlando – both to escape the cold and to visit our Florida cousins. Every time we visit Orlando, we always find new things to do! On this recent trip, we decided to check out the Orlando Crayola Experience!

About Me, Travel

It feels so cliché to say I can’t believe 2017 is coming to a close, but it’s so true! I literally just sat down to write my 2016 travel recap and yeah, here it is a year later!

Despite a crazy, three-week long sickness, and working my tail off in the later part of this year, 2017 has been very good to me. Especially travel-wise. Which is definitely not coincidental. I have been on a mission to create the life I want to live – doing things I enjoy both personally and professionally. Which certainly includes the flexibility to be on the go!

Work-wise I continued to grow my math tutoring business, I worked all summer at camp and had the best time! Writing and creating this site has taught me so much, and I hope to really expand Momma To Go in 2018. My plan is to set some goals and get myself in a better working schedule balancing writing, social sharing and updating old posts. I’ve been learning more and more about SEO and hope to do some writing outside of Momma To Go!

Last year, at this same time, I recapped my 2016 travel year. A year, which brought a three-week trip to Hawaii, was hard to top, but we tried! So here is my 2017 Travel Year in Review!

Baby Girl and I would like to thank Aquatica Orlando for providing us with two tickets to facilitate this honest review. As always, opinions are all my own.

 

My family loves visiting Orlando!  We are so lucky to have cousins who live there – to hang out with and explore all the city has to offer! In Orlando, we are always looking for new things to do, and I have had my eye on an Aquatica visit for a while.  I was so excited to be invited to check out this water park on my recent Florida trip!

The first week in November, baby girl and I were so fortunate to spend an entire Monday at Aquatica and we are so excited to share all our best Aquatica, Orlando tips with you all!

I’m pretty reserved, and normally wouldn’t brag about being an expert in anything but one thing I can say I have down pat!

Beach Packing.

I am definitely an expert in getting a family ready for the beach and on to the sand!

Little man has a March birthday, and I started taking him to the beach his very first summer. When he was 5 months old, we spent a week at the Outer Banks with #thegirlfriends. We are so lucky to travel often to Atlantic City, NJ and Naples, FL; and to have spent last August in Hawaii. But we are even luckier that we live a 10-minute drive from an Atlantic Ocean beach!

We love hitting the beach as a family, and here are our MUST-HAVES for any family beach trip!

Most of the time, I write about family friendly getaways, and fun things to do with kids. Yes, I visited Vegas with just hubby, and Minneapolis and Baltimore with some girlfriends, but little man and baby girl do prove to be my best travel companions. Traveling with a 5 and 7 year old can be fun but busy and hectic. However, on our recent two-week trip to SW Florida, I realized there are a lot of calm and relaxing activities to be had in the Naples, Florida area. Here are my best picks for relaxing activities in Naples, Florida!

I hate the winter. I hate the cold, and the snow, and temperatures that prevent outdoor activity. I love the warm, and the sun, and to be outside as much as possible. So to combat the winter blues, I’ve realized that I need to head south several times each winter.

It’s essential for my survival.

I’ve been fortunate enough to visit Orlando twice in the last two months. Both trips were awesome and I blogged about specific activities here and here, but I am recapping it all in a 48 Hours In… post.

Even though I hate winter, I kinda secretly love February. Its always a fun month with a lot of activities and this year, a two week trip to Florida! And I don’t know if because February is shorter, but it always seems to go fast! Plus, the end of February signifies that spring is around the corner! In this busy month, here is some stuff I am loving!

I’m staring out the window at a full on blizzard and reminiscing about our trip to Orlando a mere two weeks ago! If you checked out my Chef Mickey review, you know that baby girl and I were in Orlando to visit family. A full-on Disney day wasn’t in the cards for us (plus I would have felt bad going to Disney without little man). But we did do a day to trip to Legoland Florida– and it was awesome! I highly recommend adding a day at Legoland to your Central Florida itinerary! Here is my Legoland Florida Review:

Last weekend, baby girl and I took a much-needed break to some warm weather. We spent five days in Orlando, Florida with my cousin and her three kids!

Now when people think Orlando, naturally, they think of Disney World. And believe me, Disney World is amazing! And tiring! And expensive! So on this trip we took a mellower jaunt to the Greatest Place on Earth – a character meal at Chef Mickey!

About Me, Travel

Recently, I have seen some other travel bloggers putting together both 2016 travel recaps and 2017 travel resolutions, and I figured what a fun way to look back at the year and all of the great trips we have done! And of course I have a few adventures I am excited about in 2017! I only just launched this blog in October, and did not get an opportunity to write about everything we did in the first three-quarters of the year! So without further adieu… I give you the Momma To Go 2016 Travel Recap!
