When was the last time you felt truly relaxed and completely connected with all that is going on around you? Life certainly has a way of taking over. Between work, personal obligations, hauling the kids to sports, birthday parties, and class trips, the list just seems endless. Sometimes, with the monotony and business of day to day responsibilities you start to feel worn down as a person, mother, and wife. Slowing down is a foreign concept to many couples and families, yet it is the most overlooked way to rest and recharge. If you are looking for a getaway, whether just for adults or for the whole family, you simply cannot overlook the Emerson Resort and Spa located in the picturesque Catskills.

This spring and summer, we want to inspire you to hit the road and visit new places. Weekend getaways are perfect for the busy family wanting to travel. I’m Elena, Daily Mom’s managing editor and lover of all things travel. I want to share my city, Naples, Florida with our readers. I am always jetting off to other locations all over the world, but I call Naples home and know that it is a fabulous place to visit. If you want to visit Florida this summer, I think you should add Naples to your itinerary. Here is my personal list of places to visit and see while you are in my gorgeous city on the Gulf!
Easter is first and foremost a religious holiday. People gather in churches (sometimes for the first time all year) to celebrate The Resurrection. Of course for us moms, there’s another side to this beautiful holiday – the Easter Bunny. Where the idea to have a man-sized rabbit hop around depositing eggs came from, we may never truly know, but every kid loves a good egg hunt! Couple all of this with the fact that it’s often a three day weekend for most employees, and you’ve got the makings of a great vacation. Here are a few great getaway ideas for this Easter, all on the East Coast, complete with Sunrise Services, chocolate bunnies, and the most comfy beds we could find!
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. And we say they are missing out!
At Daily Mom, we are obsessed with travel. While we do travel without our kids sometimes, we are always looking for the best places to go with our kids. Traveling as a family is the best. You get to take on new experiences as you explore a city together. The memories we make while traveling with our kids are precious. If you are ready for your next family friendly getaway, Atlanta needs to be on your list! This city in the south provides a very fulfilling family vacation that is packed with activities and delicious food. Plan for a long weekend here and know that you will head home, reluctantly, after taking in Atlanta as a family.
Travel is a passion for the team at Daily Mom. We’d travel all the time if we could, but that’s just not possible. One way that we all travel as much as we can is by taking weekend getaways instead of long vacations. You can take a weekend getaway with almost no notice and have the best time ever. In some ways a weekend getaway is superior to longer trips. However, just because you are taking a quick trip doesn’t mean you shouldn’t plan that trip. Get the most out of your weekend getaway with these planning tips.
