One of the main reasons I love October (besides our birthdays) is because of the State Fair. I’ve loved going since I was a kid, and I always love taking my children whenever I get the chance. I’m not going to lie, it’s gotten crazy expensive over the years; so I don’t go nearly as much as I like, but when we do we always try to make sure we have as much fun as possible.
To close out our summer we visited the Carolina Panthers training camp. Last year while living in Boston, we visited the New England Patriots training camp, wearing our Carolina Panthers shirts of course!
The kids love going, they get to see their favorite football players and participate in awesome activities. It’s the perfect way to spend a summer day with the kids. We usually go during the week to avoid the crowds and find better parking. If you have time this summer, check out your local team’s training camp.
These events are free and open to the public on certain days. It’s best to arrive early to ensure parking and a great seat. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to get autographs from players as they go to the field.
Hilton Head Island, South Carolina is one of South Carolina’s greatest coastal treasures. It’s also one of our favorite(and in my opinion) the best travel destination for families. We have been coming to Hilton Head for years. We have celebrated weddings, reunions, nearly everything under the sun, on this beautiful little island.
On the island, you won’t find the typical go-carts, amusement rides or surf shops that you may find on Myrtle Beach or Folly Beach. However, what you will find is a top-notch family dining, mini golf and of course the beach. What I love the most is that a majority of the island is pet-friendly!
Mitchelville Beach Park aka Freedom Park is located in Beaufort County on Hilton Head Island. This beautiful beach is definitely off the beaten path, with its undisturbed beach charm and nature trails, this is one place your family needs to visit
