Traveling of any kind requires planning. Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, there are many factors that go into planning your trip, and safety is one of the most important aspects. After determining where you are traveling to, you must select where you are going to stay. If you do not have friends or family in the area you are visiting, you most likely will need to stay in a hotel, motel, or rental property. In these cases, it is very important to consider the safety of you and your family or traveling partners.

This spring break was a bit out of the ordinary for Elena and I (Dani) and our two kiddos. If you’ve been around Daily Mom at all, you know that we have a bad case of wanderlust, especially when it comes to us two. Half of the grand travel gestures we toss around never come to fruition, but this time was different. Elena decided to spend every extra minute she had – and trust me, there are not many extra minutes in this power woman’s day – on planning the perfect kid-friendly, with an educational twist, ten day trip on the other side of the country. Her hard work paid off, and we are currently – I’m literally sitting on the lawn of Tanque Verde Ranch writing this post – traveling through the state of Arizona, soaking in all the sunshine, desert heat, and cowboy facts we can find. Our first leg of the trip landed us in Tucson, at the best dude ranch in Arizona, the Tanque Verde Ranch. We’re pretty okay with just staying here for the whole week, as it’s a western paradise that fulfills us in every way, but our restless souls will ultimately move on tomorrow. So here is our diary entry into these last three days that were spent on an authentic ranch, together with our little cowboy and cowgal, Eli and Lexi.
Nestled halfway between Charlotte and Atlanta, amidst the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, sits the quaint mountain town of Highlands, North Carolina. A town that is pristinely maintained, with bustling boutiques, inspiring cuisine, and breathtaking views, the Highlands is home to a uniquely European style retreat that spans the town, giving you the feel of staying at a one-room, private bed and breakfast, yet delivering a wide variety of upscale accommodation options. It’s basically a hotel resort spread out and amongst the town, providing a homey feel and an interactive vibe. This winter, enjoy the bare tree beauty and the crisp air that surrounds Old Edwards Inn & Spa, while you retreat to their retreat.

As winter starts to settle over most of us in the US, our moods drop, our energy levels dissipate, our skin pales, and our hearts start wishing for the warm sun again — at least for those of us who are summer babies and suffer from self-diagnosed seasonal affective disorder. Don’t let the snowbanks and looming months of scarves and earmuffs get you down this year. Escape it all for a week, round up your other winter-weary friends and family, and book a ticket to year-round sunny Turks & Caicos.

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.
