We went on a Disney Cruise! {Travel Tuesday}

I am SO excited to share with you that we just got back from our first ever Disney Cruise! We originally had booked a week to Atlantis and after some recent negative reviews about the property, we did a switcharoo and booked a last minute Disney Cruise on the Magic.  It was seriously the best decision ever and I am already looking to book another one! Because we were so last minute and we planned to travel over Spring Break, our options were a bit more limited.  We ended up booking a 5-night cruise out of Miami and the only negative we had was that it wasn’t longer.  We can’t wait to book a 7-night out of Port Canaveral!

I plan on sharing ALL the things about the cruise and I will review our excursions and experiences over the next few weeks.  I did a lot of research before sailing so I will try and share as many things as possible to help any of you that might be looking to book a Disney Cruise for yourself or for your family.

Our Top 3 Family-Friendly Florida Weekend Getaways {Travel Tuesday}

For our family, 2019 is the year of experiences.  We have been through a lot the past 5 years and during those struggles, we have truly realized what is important to us.  Instead of toys or trinkets, we have decided that we want our family to get out more and explore this beautiful world we live in.  Specifically, we want to explore more of our gorgeous state of Florida.  Florida is such a huge state with some of the most breathtaking beaches, parks, springs and experiences.  We can’t wait to share with you some of our destinations and why we love them.  To get started, I have shared our top 3 Florida destinations we have already experienced as a family.  There are so many more we want to visit and I am so excited to add to this list!

30a – 30a has a special place in my heart and will always be my number 1 for family-friendly Florida destinations.  I grew up near-by in Destin, Florida and there is something about 30a that always makes me smile.  The beaches are gorgeous, the food is delicious and the small neighborhoods up and down 30a are truly magical.  I highly recommend staying at WaterColor Inn and Resort.  In addition to saying at a fantastic resort, your family can also bike to nearby Seaside for a day full of homemade ice cream, the best grilled cheese and a fun day of shopping.  WaterColor Inn and Resort is located directly on the beach and even has a kid’s club for your littles!

What to do on a Rainy Day in Destin {Travel Tuesday}

Crystal Beach, Destin, Florida

Destin, Florida has some of the most gorgeous beaches in the world.  The emerald waters and white sands are seriously heaven on earth.  Growing up there, I took advantage of the beauty and really started to appreciate it more once I moved away.

Crystal Beach, Destin, FL

Fortunately, we travel back home to Destin a few times a year and we are so lucky we get to spend so much time on the beach.  When the weather is warm and sunny there is so much to do for the kiddos (stay tuned for a post full of my favorite things to do with kids in Destin).  But when it is raining, it can get a bit tricky to find things to do that are family-friendly.  Here are 5 things to do in Destin when it is raining:
