Chimney Rock State Park

{{This article is part of our Asheville With Kids series.}}

Chimney Rock State Park

Travel about 30 minutes east of Asheville to Chimney Rock State Park.  Your reward: 75-mile panoramic views from atop this 535-million year old icon of North Carolina! The drive up the mountain takes about 10 minutes, and the stunning tree- and rock- lined road doesn’t begin to prepare you for the scene at the top.  The view from the parking lot is magnificent, and it is worth the trip even if you are not prepared to climb the 500 stairs to the actual Rock.

But, climb we did.  The stairs have plenty of resting platforms, and they were secure on the sides, as well.  I made my 5-year old hold the railing and we put the baby in a sling; it took about 15 minutes to ascend.  We were in awe with each step from the breathtaking views of Lake Lure (featured in Dirty Dancing) to the gorgeous mountain vistas.

Once at the top, visitors can pose on the rocks for photos, or sit peacefully to take in the slight breeze that accompanies the view.  If you are weary from the walk, as we were, take your rest with a cup of ice cream; there is a gift and snack shop.  My young son was thrilled with his lapel pin purchase, eager to show off his accomplishment. While we savored the flavors, Dad and the older kids continued to the Skyline Trail, the highest peak in the park with an elevation of 2,480 ft, overlooking Chimney Rock.

If you are looking to explore Chimney Rock further, there are multiple trails for hiking, including kid-friendly trails near the entrance.  There is also a trail to the mountain’s waterfall, but it is closed due to a mudslide brought on by the unusually wet summer this year. Great Woodland Adventure Trail features discovery stations for kids, each showcasing a locally-made sculpture.  The trailhead is just beside the Animal Discovery Den, which houses several live animals for kids to enjoy.

Asheville Biltmore Kids


{{This article is part of our Asheville With Kids series.}}


Tour the 250-room home of George Vanderbilt, American’s transportation tycoon.  This behemoth is the largest home in America and often-dubbed “America’s Downton Abbey.”  Want to go but feeling hesitant about bringing the kids? Not to worry! Biltmore caters to kiddos; they will have a blast. Homeschool Day is a very popular experience with homeschool families around the south.  Biltmore is also working on a new Homeschool Workbook, which will be available shortly.  (When it is, we will let you know via Facebook, and add a link here!)

We toured the home at our own pace, which took a few hours.  My teenagers loved the audio tour, as expected, but I was unsure my energetic kindergartener would hold up. Boy was I surprised! He adored the scavenger hunt that Biltmore made available for younger ones, but only part way through he had commandeered by audio tour and was engrossed in the rich history of each room.

After an inside tour, don’t miss a walk around the grounds of the mansion.  There are over 22-miles of trails.  Younger kids will enjoy the three ponds of the Italian Garden; the lily pads and Kio will mesmerize them.  Keep walking through the Walled Garden and down to the Conservatory; they can get the wiggles out and you can admire the gorgeous backdrop.  If you have older kids then consider extending your walk into the Azalea Garden, or out into the woodland trails.

Stable Café, beside the main house and garden, is the perfect lunch spot for a family.  My son indulged afterwards at the ice cream shop before our group piled back in the car and headed a few miles (still on the 8,000-acre property) to Antler Hill Village and Winery.  We felt very comfortable bringing the kids on the 30-minute wine tour; they enjoyed seeing the old clock which is still hand-wound today, and Lady Vanderbilt’s 1913 “C-Six” touring car. At the end the kids even had some sparkling grape juice while we indulged a bit at the complimentary tasting at the tour’s end.

After the tasting, we walked to the Village. This is a gathering space with gardens, restaurants, a new playground, a farm and petting zoo, and a plethora of outdoor adventure options.

Tupelo Honey Cafe

{{This article is part of our Asheville With Kids series.}}

Tupelo Honey Café

We had the pleasure of partaking in a breakfast smorgasbord while visiting Tupelo Honey Cafe.  Biscuits and honey came to the table with our coffee; they rose high and melted in our mouth.  We tried everything from the sweet potato pancakes to the eggs and bacon. It was a proverbial “Sunday morning” at our large family table, filled with generous helpings and friendly banter.  Tupelo Honey works hard to source their ingredients from local farmers, and the freshness resonates in each morsel. Even the baby was enjoying the fare, nibbling away at Daddy’s asparagus while we talked.

Tupelo Honey works for the singleton eating at the bar, or a large family of 6, like ours.  You know you’re at a kid-friendly joint when there are ten selections on the child’s menu, and it (like the main menu) offers gluten-free and vegan options.  The wait staff was awesome; even with a huge morning crowd, our server never missed a step.

I am most excited to share with you about the community work Tupelo Honey is doing for Asheville, and each of the cities where a Tupelo Honey Café resides.  For example, in Sullivan (near Greenville, SC), they partner with Mill Village Farms.  Mill Village Farms is a community farm like no other.  This non-profit employs the neighborhood kids of this underprivileged area of town, and teaches them job skills, organic agriculture, and entrepreneurship.  While they do this, they grow fresh produce for families in the neighborhood who are in need. If you are interested in learning more about Tupelo Honey and Mill Village, here is a great video.

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Asheville – Biltmore

{{This article is part of our Asheville With Kids series.}}

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Asheville – Biltmore

Location, location, location. DoubleTree by Hilton was an excellent choice for our family.  It was only a short drive into downtown for our visits to Tupelo Honey and Mayfels, we were literally minutes from Biltmore, and we easily jumped on the Interstate for our mountain adventures.

We opted for basic two rooms to better accommodate our family of six, but a smaller family will appreciate a suite with a fridge.  The convenient Market Place in the lobby made it easy to grab a coffee (love the Kuerig coffee maker!), snack, or on-the-go breakfast sack.  In the evenings we spent much of our time at the indoor pool, complete with hot tub and gym.  The free wi-fi made it easy to post some vacation photos to Facebook for our friends back home.

While we did not use it, room service is available.  The hotel is also connected to a TGI Fridays. Even in this farm-to-table restaurant wonderland, we opted for a night at Fridays. After a day of sightseeing with the kids, do not overlook the convenience of an in-hotel restaurant! There is a large, formal breakfast buffet available in the mornings, as well.

The staff were exceptionally helpful and polite.  They always greeted us with a warm smile, and offered to help with any of our planning.  They were even kind enough to deliver a pack-n-play to the room at the last minute.

As the nostalgic one in the family, one of my favorite things about this hotel is that the land it sits on was formerly part of the Biltmore Dairy.  You can even find life-size Jersey cow and milk wagon art in the lobby! The current owner is a member of the Vanderbilt family, and ensures the hotel contributes to the rich history of the Asheville area.

We would definitely stay here again.

Family-Friendly Cote d’Or Burgundy France

Filed under: Travel — Rebecca Kochenderfer @ 6:45 am

Burgundy with kids

Burgundy, or Bourgogne as the French say, is a region that calls to wine enthusiasts and medieval historians.  The vineyards and caves that dot the countryside are attractive and inviting; the historical villages and ancient monuments are a reminder of the wanton past in this land. Burgundy was its own independent state until 1477, and the most wealthy region of France then and now.

Within Burgundy there are four areas, each with their own contribution to the region.  Cote d’Or is the most popular for oenophiles, but it is also a region that kids and their families can appreciate.  So go. Enjoy the country; enjoy the wine. Rest easy knowing the kids will have a blast as well! Here are three towns with kid-friendly fun to get you started.



Flavigny is a walled medieval city of only about 300 residents.  No cars are allowed within the walls, so the city has retained its old-time charm.  As you walk the city you will notice several maps in strategic locations to help identify important houses and features.   Adults will not want to miss the Abbey, founded in 717, which is free to tour. Wait! Can you smell that scent? It’s aniseed. The kids will love a tour of the aniseed candy factory, next to the Abby. One final note: the movie ‘Chocolat’ filmed primarily in this ancient fortress.



The prime attraction in this Burgundy town is Hotel-Dieu, a 15th century hospice, which has been lovingly preserved and renovated.   Your kid’s imaginations will soar as they see the medieval medical tools on display.  The wards, kitchen and pharmacy are also on exhibit.  Once convinced of the marvels of modern medicine, head to a wine tasting in one of the large dark caves in this area.  Children are welcome on tasting tours, and they will feel like Indiana Jones navigating the wine tunnels. Mom and Dad may also enjoy a stop at the Museum of Wine whose 15th century building was once a meeting place for the dukes of the Region.



Should you be staying in the region overnight, Dijon is a choice location for your hotel.  It was one of the great European cities of the 14th century, and is still lively and bustling today.  Owl’s Trail is a wonderful way to learn about the city while keeping the kiddos interested and entertained. In this self-guided tour, children can hunt for owls (carvings, plaques and such on buildings in the area) as you wander the streets discovering interesting facts of the town (like the house with no roof!) Don’t forget a stop at Amora Mustard Museum. You can also visit a cheese factory, a truffle farm, and more.  Most museums are free, as well.


There are many more family-friendly excursions in Burgundy, but if time only allows for a short visit, Cote d’Or is the region to explore.  Have you been to this medieval land? Tell us about it!


5 Free Family Adventures in Switzerland

Filed under: Travel — Rebecca Kochenderfer @ 6:38 am

free family adventure switzerland


Switzerland is expensive.  There is no way to sugar-coat this truth. However, don’t let this stop you from visiting this land adorned with gorgeous mountain peaks and looking-glass lakes. Here are five free things to do for families visiting Switzerland.

Tour Swiss Parliament (Bern)

If you are bringing your children in the summer, then good luck getting them into the building; you might have to admire it from the outside.  In front of this majestic domed government house are a series of dancing fountains that entertain the children – locals and tourists – during the warm months.  Should you make it inside, free tours are offered most days of the year. During Session you can also hear debates and meet a Swiss official or two.  No photos are allowed inside. Bring your passport ID, and some change for a locker if you are carrying a large bag.


Explore the outdoors (Various)

Hiking trails of various length and difficulty abound in this country.  Families might enjoy such hikes as the Heidi Trail in Maienfeld, exploring the mountains and fields that inspired the famous story.  There is a Witches Trail in Schwarzsee where you can read about the seven legends and fairy tales of this land. Hike the Historic Railway Trail in Bergun-Bravuogn for striking views of the Rhaetian Railway line, or the Geology/Botany Trail in Lucerne, which starts at the Stancerhorn. Whatever your taste, download the free Swiss Hike iPhone app in order to download 32 hiking maps offline.


Visit a cathedral (Various)

Often, with the Alps and Matterhorn, as well as over 600 castles, cathedrals in Switzerland often go unnoticed.  These architectural masterpieces are gorgeous to behold, and they offer insight into the religious traditions of Switzerland and the Swiss canton in which they are located. Arguably, Lausanne Cathedral is the most impressive, with its decorative doorway, Montfalcon Portal.  St. Peter’s in Geneva is interesting in that it displays multiple architectural styles within a single building. The pillars, towers, and spires are breathtaking.  Cathedrals are a free marvel to behold all around Switzerland.


Ride around the city (Geneva)

In the summer months, rent a bicycle in one of six locations around Geneva for free.  From May through October you can cycle the city for up to four hours for free, and then return your bike to any of the rental locations.  If you want to tour the city in winter (or in a more climate-controlled manner) then hop on a tram, bus or train with your Geneva Transport Card, which is free to anyone staying in a hotel, hostel or campground in Geneva. You can even cross the lake for free in a yellow-taxi boat. Coming into Geneva via the airport? Don’t forget to pick up a ticket in baggage claim for free transport to your hotel.


Peek into the wonders of Emmental cheese (Affoltern)

Emmental is an iconic Swiss cheese, tracing back to the 13th century.  Its name comes from the river Emme, near Bern, which is where the cheese is thought to have originated.  Visit the dairy to watch the cheese being made; free tours are available several times a day. Call ahead to reserve your space, as tours fills quickly. The restaurant offers a variety of cheeses to taste. There are also walking excursions in the area of this picturesque valley, including the Emmental Cheese Route, which touts this delicious cheese, as well as other aspects of the local agriculture and other interests of the area. A free map and phone app of the route is available, including a fun scavenger hunt-type side story for the kiddos.

Family Fun on the Amalfi Coast

Filed under: Travel — Rebecca Kochenderfer @ 7:31 am


The Amalfi Coast of Italy is breath taking – no other words can describe it.  You may know it from John Steinbeck’s essay Positano, or you may recall this region of 13 municipalities from the stories of Hercules or Odysseus.  However you came to be familiar, it will certainly mark a memorable family trip to Italy. The Italian culture adores children and most Italians will go out of their way to accommodate and play with them.  Enjoying the local culture, lounging on the beach, and taking in the scenery will fill most of your time here, but if you are up for adventure then try these three family-friendly Amalfi Coast activities.



Walk the streets of Positano

This vertical city built on a cliff is the most photographed place in the world. Tourists do not come to “see the sites”, but rather to soak up the view, observe the locals, and enjoy shopping for colorful silks and juicy lemons.  Hire a car to the Church of Santa Maria Assunta for gorgeous views of the coastline and the sea. Walk the footpaths down to the city center, catching the scent of lemons and cypress as you go.  Be sure to grab a map of the footpaths so you don’t get lost. Children will appreciate the nooks and crannies to explore and hide.



Take a cooking class

Does anything say Italy more than a grand family meal?  Share time together in the kitchen learning to master the ways of Mediterranean cuisine at one of many culinary schools along the coast.  You will enjoy preparing, cooking, and eating together Italian style in an experience usually lasting six to eight hours.   Classes are generally held in the home-based business of a local family, and children are welcome with open arms, free to roam about the garden and fall asleep on the sofa if necessary.



Rent a boat and tour the coast

One of the most beautiful views of this area is from the sea.  Schedule a half- or full-day tour, or hire a boat and command your own adventure. You can take a dip in the water, tour the coastline, stopping at various seaside towns, and explore hidden treasures such as the colorful sea caves.  The Blue Grotto is most famous, but the Green Grotto is just as lovely and without the crowds.  Be sure to ask your hotel about complimentary boat rides; many offer a rental but do not advertise this service.

7 Things To Do In London With Teenagers

Filed under: Travel — Rebecca Kochenderfer @ 5:12 pm

London with Teenagers

London is rich with architecture, history and culture, but it can be tricky to make it fun for teens.  Consider the following activities that are sure to make this a memorable family vacation.

See a show in the West End. Take your pick of several world-class shows in this district reminiscent of America’s Broadway.  Flexible schedule? Secure your tickets at half-price or deep discount via tkts booths in Leicester Square on the day of the show.  If you go this route, view theater layouts online first, as diagrams are not available when you make your purchase.  Counterfeit ticketing is prevalent in this area, so be sure to buy tickets from a reputable source.

Ride the Serpentine Boats in Hyde Park. Hyde Park is great for running and rollerblading, but the most leisurely way to see this greenspace is by boat. Rentals are available on the north side from March – October. There are also various eating options around the park. For a taste of the culture, make your picnic near the Speakers’ Corner to hear the locals take to their soapbox.

Climb St Paul’s Cathedral. While Westminster Abbey was most recently in the news as the nuptial site for the Royal Wedding, St Paul’s Cathedral is a more welcoming landmark for younger visitors.  The church is open and bright; teens will enjoy the climb to the Whispering Gallery and onto the colorful Dome for breathtaking views of London.  Romantics will be happy to know that this second largest domed cathedral was the wedding site for Charles and Diana.

Wonder at Stonehenge. OK. I’m cheating. This prehistoric mystery is two hours out of London; there are several tours available if you are not up to hiring a car.  But yes, it is worth the effort to see this circular series of gigantic rocks.  Regular visitors cannot visit inside the ring of boulders, but various after-hours tours are available for those seeking access to the inner circle. There is also a gift shop and several places to get a soda or ice cream.

Indulge at a London Market. Whatever your teen’s passion, there is sure to be a London Market in which to coddle that obsession.  Brick Lane Market is a fun place for clothes and eclectic finds.  Broadway Market showcases local artists and farmers, tasty treats and vintage wear.  If you are looking for more upscale designer fashion and art, try Camden Lock Market.  Enjoy the street performers and awesome architecture at the indoor market at Covent Garden London.  There is something for everyone and sure to be a market near you.

View the city from the London Eye.  This Ferris-wheel sends you more than 440 feet in the air over the Thames for a spectacular view almost 25 miles around London.  The ride is 30 minutes long and can be taken day or night (or both) for reasonable rates.  You can also opt for a ticket that includes a private capsule, 4D theatre experience,  or River Cruise to see Big Ben, Parliament, St Paul’s and Tower Bridge from the water.  Whatever your option, buy your tickets online for a significant savings.

Explore WWT London Wetland Centre. This haven was voted best Nature Center in the UK.  Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city without leaving London.  The Centre is teeming with wildlife including birds, otters, water voles, and more.  The wetlands and various installed art make beautiful pictures – and it is easy to get lovely wildlife photos without an expensive camera lens. If you are looking for an in-depth study, consider taking one of several guided tours.

Educational Fieldtrip: Cat in the Hat at The Center for Puppetry Arts

Filed under: Travel — Lesli Peterson @ 7:29 am

Cat in the Hat

Theodor Geisel, also known as Dr. Seuss, first published the Cat in the Hat in 1957 as a response to an article that said the current school primers were not beneficial to students. It is targeted at six- and seven- year olds who have mastered the mechanics of basic reading, making it the perfect summer reading series (The Cat appears in six Dr. Seuss books) to keep your little one’s minds spry over summer.

We had the privilege of seeing The Cat in the Hat at The Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA.  This beloved story comes to life with Sally and Nick left at home on a rainy day, seemingly destined to overcome their boredom by themselves.  Things take a turn toward fun when The Cat in the Hat shows at their door, demonstrating a series of boredom busters, including the clever balance of the Fish on his umbrella while steadying himself on a ball…with a cup of tea, some books, a cake….and the list goes on.

As Sally and Nick try to decide whether they are delighted or frightened, The Cat reappears with a large wooden crate. Inside are Thing 1 and Thing 2, who edge the chaos up a notch or two, destroying the house and driving the Fish to a new level of anxiety. My son later indicated that this upheaval was his very favorite part.

Once Nick finally corrals the Things, The Cat comes to the rescue with his incredible Picking-Up Machine, cleaning the house and destroying any evidence of mischief and frenzy.

While based on a play originally produced by the National Theatre of Great Britain, it is Atlanta’s Center for Puppetry Arts that created on site the puppets and set of this production.  They are masterpieces of design, and draw the audience into the house and hearts of Nick and Sally, using clever color and puppetry techniques (and bubbles from the ceiling don’t hurt, either.) I felt like I was actually experiencing Dr. Seuss’s original classic.

If you live in Atlanta, or are passing through June 13 – July 28, 2013, be sure to set aside time for this treat.  I have seen many shows at CPA, but this one will surely be marked as legendary, on caliber with their Rudolph Christmas show!


The mission at Center for Puppetry Arts is as follows,

The Center uses the art form of puppetry as a means to provide educational experiences that encourage creativity, support school-day learning, fuel holistic development, and provide accessible, hands-on opportunities to participate in arts activities. The Center’s live puppetry performances, hands-on workshops, and guided museum tours provide creative arts experiences to students that aren’t available in classrooms while also providing teachers with opportunities to infuse the arts into their curriculum goals.

If you are not a resident in the Atlanta area, you can still learn about this wonderful art form through their distance learning events and educator resources.


Are you interested in learning more about The Cat in the Hat, or using some FREE Cat in the Hat resources for encouraging your young ones to read over the summer? See our Cat in the Hat Homeschooling Pinterest Board.

10 Free Things to Do as a Family On Your Next Vacation

Filed under: Travel — Guest Author @ 3:38 am
10 Free Things to Do as a Family On Your Next Vacation

Enjoying a free activity – Geocaching – while on vacation in Huntsville, Alabama

Summer is here, and many moms and dads are gearing up for vacations to have some fun and re-connect as a family. While it’s not easy to get around high airfares and gas prices, there are lots of fun and free things families can do on their next getaway. Here are ten of my favorite free activities to engage in when we take family vacations.


1. Explore Public Art Sculptures. If your kids are too young to enjoy art galleries and exhibitions, consider public art sculptures located in many cities across the country. Your kids will love The Traveling Man in Dallas and The Bean in Chicago.


2. Go on an Alphabet Photo Tour. Give each child a camera (a disposable camera will do), a smartphone or an iPod Touch to use on an Alphabet Photo Tour. Start with the letter A and have your children take pictures of what they see that start with that letter, like an antique store or an ambulance.


3. Go to a Free Summer Concert. Free outdoor concerts can be found in just about every city during the summer months, so look for free concerts in the park. These are a great way to introduce your children to various musical genres, as well as to new dances and cultures.


4. Volunteer While on Vacation. It’s easy to re-connect as a family when you take the time to help those in need while on vacation. If you’re planning a trip to the Caribbean check into Together for Good, which lists schools and orphanages in need of basic supplies you can donate in-person.


5. Gaze Up at the Stars. Wherever you are, head to a quiet spot, lie on your backs and stare up at the constellations. Check out online kids game, Constellation Hunt, to identify what can be found in the night sky. Many science centers and national parks also offer evening sky watching programs.


6. Splash in a Waterfall. If your vacation plans will take you to a state or national park, scout out the waterfalls. A true reward after a family hike is to splash in a cold waterfall, so pick a park with a few different waterfalls and wear your swimsuit.


7. Try Geocaching. Geocaching is an outdoor game that revolves around hunting for real-world treasures. Look for hidden containers, called caches, using your smartphone. If you find a cache and take anything out, be sure to replace it with something of equal value, so have the kids pack trinkets for trading.


8. Take a Nap Together. After a busy fun-filled morning, take a break with a rejuvenating family nap. It’s a nice way to bond with your kids and a great way to recharge before a busy afternoon of summer vacation activities.


9. Go on a Picnic. Many parks have picnic tables and restrooms, so pack a picnic lunch and enjoy a day in the park. Whether taking in a city park or a national park, go on a fun, exploratory hike with your kids on your way to the picnic area.


10. Plan a Day of Free Family Fun. Pick a day of your vacation and plan a “free day” in which you only do activities that are free, like playing in parks and going to outdoor concerts. A quick Google search for “free things to do” and the city you’re visiting will turn up a number of free events and attractions.


For more family activity suggestions, check out my free ebook, 100 Activities to Do as a Family This Summer. It’s packed with family-focused ideas, tips and advice to help ensure a fabulous summer.
