Planning a trip to Hawaii? Be sure to stop for a cup of tea at the Ali'i Kula Lavender Farm, where you can gaze out over the blue Pacific from the foot of a lavender meadow.

Looking for a bit of whimsy in Upstate New York? An aura of romance permeates Boldt Castle, a rare jewel from the Gilded Age, where over 700 couples have exchanged wedding vows.

Are you looking for something unique in the state of Washington? Seattle's Olympic Sculpture Park features works by some of the foremost names in modem art. What's more, it's situated over a lush green swath that overlooks the Puget Sound.

Planning a trip to Florida? Why not stop at Tampa's Big Cat Rescue, where you can see endangered cougars, tigers, and lions in a protected sanctuary?

Passing through Indiana? Discover a world created in miniature at The Museum of Miniature Houses and Other Collections in Carmel.

We enjoy roadtrips and would love to find new places to enjoy with the children. We know some of the obvious places but would love some that are a little different.
