Cabo San Lucas

My recent articles concentrated on local daytrips but I’d like to deviate this week and share the experience my husband and I experienced recently.

For the next daytrip suggestion, I’ll concentrate on historic Georgetown. A long time ago when my husband and I were dating, we’d go skiing then stop on the downhill drive from Eisenhower Tunnel in Georgetown for dinner. By the time we ate a bite, the heavy traffic had cleared away and it was smooth driving into Denver.

Entertaining The Kids In Metro Denver

The unseasonably warm weather this March fooled Coloradoans into thinking spring is actually here. However, I’ve experienced Colorado snowstorms in May. My Texas brother swears it snowed one Fourth of July when he visited Denver and we attended a fireworks show. I remember it was cold; my pictures prove that I loaned his wife a heavy coat.

Little did she know that sometimes a destination can only be reached by airplanes or boats. With gas prices rising hourly, Channel 9 News did a study recently on which is cheaper: to fly or drive. So, I did a comparison of my own for our Minnesota trip to celebrate a 100th birthday over July 4th.
