Nature

We did the Nature adventures as a family and it was so fun. Exceeded our expectations. If you are looking for a gift idea for someone who has everything this is the perfect gift! I bought them for my kids team coaches as a year end thank you gift along with Christmas gifts for family and friends.

Taste of the Country

This was so fun!! My sister and I bought this for mothers day and it was a great way to spend time together. This particular one was a lot of food/snacks along the way (which makes sense with it being called TASTE of country) but we were quite full throughout. We did as much as we could and it took almost the entire day but we had a lot of fun and loved every stop we went to. The only thing is one of the stops relates to a show, which luckily we watched and loved, but if you didn't, it would be less exciting. However, they did have an alternative options for each stop.

Wintertime Fun!

Enjoyed this trip the weekend before Christmas is 2023 with my sister. We loved the Christmas farm market at one of the first stops. We then had a lovely hike and did some more holiday shopping in some cute towns at the later stops. Highly recommend this trip! We are planning on going again in the early summer to check out the markets again when some more fruits/ veggies are available.
