Best Cape Cod Beaches

Best Beaches on Cape Cod

Cape Cod peninsula, which extends into Atlantic Ocean from the southeastern Massachusetts, offers some 600 miles of coastline.  There are over a hundred beaches – with dramatically diverse scenery, water and sand features. We are lucky to live less than 90-minute drive away from Cape Cod and are visiting often this summer. It is about …

The Nutcracker Season is Open at Boston Ballet (our visit report and backstage video)

As much as I like to lead my family along on my weekend agenda, they are all grown-up enough now to have their own!  So this year, my daughter was the one who decided that we are going yet again to The Nutcracker at Boston Ballet.   We were lucky to be invited to the Opening …

Fall Weekends To Do Ideas in New England

Fall Weekends in New England

While my favorite  New England season is summer, fall comes very close second. With an ever time-consuming summer pass time (the beach!) no longer factoring into our weekends, there is time to appreciate many other outdoor celebrations in New England – within a short drive from Boston. Here is what’s on our TO DO list …

Culture and Picnicking in the Berkshires

Our followers must know by now that our summer is not complete  without a 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 to see in any season. Our favorite time to visit is summer because it is the …

Tanglewood Summer for Families (with Video)

SUMMER  2020 update: Tanglewood Festival is happening online, but grounds are open for visits with prior registration. I used to think of a Tanglewood concert (in Massachusetts Berkshires) as a romantic date night idea. Over the last couple of summers however, attending a Tanglewood concert has become our family’s tradition (it is still part of …

Our First Ever WEEKEND VLOG! Afternoon Tea at Blithewold Estate!

For recent Mother’s Day Sunday we headed to a nearby Bristol, Rhode Island for an AFTERNOON TEA (not to be confused with HIGH TEA- you will find out the difference if you watch our VLOG).  First, we toured the rooms of the historic early 20th century BLITHEWOLD ESTATE with an audio guide and then we …

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 …
