Florida, Travel

My kids love animals and are always up for a zoo, farm or aquarium visit. On our recent trip to Clearwater Florida, we were so excited to be able to visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and Marine Life Rescue Center– not just to see all the great sea life, but to learn about how they rehab animals! That’s right, the Clearwater Aquarium is more than just a place to go and look at marine animals – it a working sea animal rehab facility!

The Best Aquarium in Florida! Plan your visit to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of Winter the Dolphin from Dolphin tale and Hope the dolphin from Dolphin Tale 2. This aquarium is also a marine life rescue center. #Florida #Clearwater #Tampa #TampaBay #FamilyTravel #ActivitieswithKids

Over Christmas break, I wanted to take the kids into the city to see the tree in Rockefeller Center. But I also wanted to do something else, something new (new to us at least) and different. I looked into the three pop-ups that are currently going on, Candytopia, Color Factory and the Trolls Experience. Honestly, we went to Trolls because it was the one of the three that wasn’t sold out for our date and it was close to Rockefeller Center. We had a great time at the Trolls Experience NYC and I’m excited to share our review with you.

Stuff I Love

I love sharing my destination guides and travel tips for taking kids around the world! But I also love introducing my readers to fun things they can do close to home. Unless you are a full-time travel family (and I have met many through blogging and social media) you are spending more time at home than traveling. For that reason, I like to have lots of activities in my back pocket to tuck away for a holiday or weekend day when we are just hanging on Long Island. Over the last year, we have been introduced to roller skating and it has quickly become my kids’ favorite indoor activity! So I am super excited to share with you some more info on the best place to go roller skating on Long Island and why I know you will love roller skating too!

Add roller skating to your list of favorite indoor activities. Check out the best place to roller skate on Long Island, United Skates in Seaford. Celebrate National Roller Skating month with special discounts! #RollerSkating #LongIsland #KidsActivities


I will be spending the next year as a United Skates Social Media ambassador. Our previous experiences at United Skates have been not sponsored. As always, opinions are all my own.

Momma To Go readers know we love our Lego experiences. So far we have visited Legoland Florida. the Legoland Florida Water park and At the beginning of this summer, we spent a day at the Legoland Discovery Center in Westchester.

On both of our Legoland visits we were able to visit new Ninjago exhibits. In Florida, the Ninjago ride has JUST opened, and it proved to be one of our favorites! At LDC, the giant play area has recently been revamped into a Ninja theme! Modeled after the Temple of Airjitzu, the attraction’s new LEGO® Ninjago City Adventure play structure puts guests’ physical skills to the test with more than 20 interactive features including a vortex spinning barrel, a spiral slide of lights, lightning buzzer bars, crisscross maze, vertical rope climb and more, as they fight to save Ninjago City.

Today we were super excited to return to the Legoland Discovery Center for their LEGO Ninjago Days!

I love where we live – especially in the summer months. Honestly, there isn’t too much of a need to plan big getaways, there is so much to do here on Long Island! But even though I have lived here almost my whole life, there was one place I was really hoping to get to this summer! So a few weekends ago we took a Fire Island Day Trip!

My family loves amusement parks and my kids love rides. They also can’t get enough of the pool! So I knew this summer we wanted to try a full-on water park for the first time. This week we decided to venture to Splish Splash water park in Long Island, New York for an awesome day of water rides! UPDATE: Excited to say this has become a yearly tradition! One of our favorite summer activities for sure!

You all know I love the beach and pool, but another summer (and spring/fall) activity that our family loves is to visit theme parks! This past winter we were lucky enough to visit Legoland Florida twice, have a brunch at Chef Mickey at Walt Disney World, and have visited our local amusement park, Adventureland, many times.

One park that has always made our summer must-do list is Sesame Place in Langhorne, Pennsylvania. I honestly do not think we will go this year, for the first time in 5 summers! I am a bit sad about this! But my guys have “graduated” to a bigger water park (we have a Splish Splash visit scheduled in a couple of weeks), but we have gone to Sesame Place for the past five summers and I am thrilled to share my best Sesame Place tips to help younger families plan their most awesome trip.

I love traveling with my little ones, but sometimes mom and dad need a vacation! Last fall we took a longer getaway to Las Vegas, and recently we went on short holiday to Greenport, Long Island. We have also taken day trips to this lovely North Fork town with our kids. Out in Greenport there is lots to do (and eat) for everyone!

There are so many things to love about Italy. The coffee, the food, the historic sights… but one of my favorites, is the wine! I love Prosecco, a cold white wine on the piazza, or a deep red with a big bowl of pasta. Yes, only in Italy can I tolerate … no enjoy, red wine.

So when our awesome DMC at Exclusively Italy arranged for us a vineyard tour and wine tasting, I knew this was going to be a highlight of our trip!
