When thinking about getting on a plane with two 4 year olds and flying 5 hours across the country just to spend 2 days hiking and then repeat it all over again to get back home, most moms would start hyperventilating. It’s true, preschoolers aren’t the easiest to hang out with in general, then put them in a tin can for hours straight and the resulting nightmare can give anyone a heart attack. Between the why’s and the constant whining and the snacks and having to sit still for 5 hours, you would think that the majority of sane people do not plan short stints across the country.

Winter Romance at the Beach: St. Simons Island, GA: Featuring: The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort
Typically, on the Southeast coast of the United States, the beaches there in the cooler months tend to cool down a bit as well, while still maintaining a comfortably mild temperature. While others may jet set off to beaches that are hot and humid to escape the winter months, many people embrace the season as it is, and enjoy the break from the heat. If you and your partner are looking for a romantic beach getaway this winter, but don’t want to jump right back into the dead of summer, then consider taking a trip to the beautifully historic, elegantly romantic town of St. Simons Island, Georgia, where The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort peacefully awaits your arrival.
Gone are the days where children would run around acres of lush acreage in boots and farm dresses from sunup to sundown, playing tag and building secret forts in the woods. You no longer see many men with weathered cowboy hats riding horses while they herd their cattle about, or women tending the homestead while gathering fresh roots and eggs for a hearty dinner. You probably can’t imagine a modern day household without a TV set, five telephones, or family dinner around the table for every meal.
But, what if that’s what you long for? What if part of you wants to go back in time to a simpler era, where family values prevail and traditions are steadfast. What if you and your family desperately need an escape from today’s fast paced world? Then it’s time to dust off the kid’s riding boots, buy cowboy hats for the whole crew, and book some tickets to sunny Santa Barbara, California, where The Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort will quietly be waiting to transport your family back to a time where Instagram and BMWs never existed.
