Ho Ho, Let’s Go!
One way to celebrate the season is to pack up the family for some cozy vacation fun. And we’ve got three great options.
I love travel writer Ann Campbell’s article on San Francisco For the Holidays! The city is just a quick flight or a day’s drive away, yet the vibe is totally different from our SoCal home base. Ann’s festive guide will make you want to go!
Even closer is Great Wolf Lodge in Garden Grove, but this local resort is it’s own family-friendly world. Writer Rina Nehdar and her family are fans, and she offers the lowdown on how to make a holiday splash there this season.
We also have ski options nearby, and even some snow. If you haven’t skied with your kids before, check out Mimi Slawoff’s handy guide to First-time Skiing With Kids. Mimi, an avid skier since childhood, raised three skiers of her own and has great advice for parents who want to do the same.
Be merry and bright!
