We are a family of three ( mom, dad and infant son) who love to travel, both domestically, particularly to the NW, and overseas when we get the chance. In addition to leaving town at most every opportunity, I enjoy photography, home brewing, gardening, cooking and soccer.
When on a trip we want to stay somewhere comfortable, but location is likely more important since we probably won't be in the room much. We always attempt to scope out great eateries, farmers markets, and bars and breweries that are off the beaten path rather than the more obvious choices. Being active whether it be on a hike, kayak or bike is also usually in order. Ultimately we like to get a feel for what it would be like to live in our destiation city or town rather than to visit, even if we are only there for a short time.
