Culture and Picnicking in the Berkshires (with Video)

2020 Update: some Berkshires picnics (e.g. at the Mount!) are still possible this summer! Our followers must know by now that the  summer is not complete for us without the visit to the Berkshires – a mountainous region in Western Massachusetts (about 2.5-hour drive from our suburb south of Boston) with plenty of beautiful nature …

Family Weekend in Niagara Falls Ontario

Family Weekend Roadtrip to Niagara Falls, Ontario (Video included!)

Until this weekend, our longest WEEKEND roadtrip has been to Hershey, PA (I am not counting college trips though- we were on a serious mission and got a little “carried away”).  Having 3 weekend days on our hands, we decided to conquer Niagara Falls, Ontario (Canada) with a side trip to Toronto (approximately 7 hours …

SUMMER  2020 update: Tanglewood Festival is happening online, but grounds are open for visits with prior registration.

Mother’s Day Ideas In and around Boston

Mother’s Day (on May 12 this year) is a great excuse to spend time with Mom.  Go against the crowds this year and celebrate just before or shortly after the official calendar holiday;  better yet – plan several celebrations throughout the month of May! My Mom and I plan to have one of our May celebrations …

Family Outing at Coppelia (by Boston Ballet). There is spring somewhere!

I could not believe my eyes when I opened the curtains on a Saturday morning this weekend (at the end of March!) and saw the new snow on the ground! But any flurries in the forecast have settled down in time for our mom-daughter outing to the Boston Ballet’s Coppelia.  Even if the weather is …

Kids Holiday Matinee at the Boston Pops: What to Expect

As a family, we try to take advantage of Boston’s world class cultural attractions every chance we get.   Attending Boston Pops Orchestra’s Kids Holiday Matinee at the Symphony Hall seemed festively appropriate for December holidays, but when we first attended a couple of years ago, we had no idea what to expect.   So we put together …
