Hey! It’s me … PlayDrMom again! This time I’m here to share another one of my favorite places to go with the kids … Lloyd A. Stage Nature Center, in Troy, Michigan.
It’s been a couple of weeks since our last visit to this local Nature Center … and I’m sure, by [...]
I can’t believe it took me 12 years of living in San Diego before I finally made it to this museum. Located in beautiful and historic Balboa Park, The Nat is a fantastic way to spend a day with your kids, especially a hot summer day in a city where air conditioning [...]
Birch Aquarium at Scripps, located in La Jolla, offers a fantastic (and much more affordable) alternative to Sea World for families looking to explore Southern California’s marine life minus the crowds and shows. The aquarium, part of UCSD, is dedicated to education and conservation.

It’s PlayDrMom again! This time I’m here to tell you about a great place we stopped on our travels in the Northeast U.S.
On our grand adventure in New England we spent one night, 2 days in Ogunquit, Maine. I choose to make this stop on our trip because my parents brought me [...]
We love the aviation museum in Warner Robins GA. It is huge and there is so much to see. We took my nephew many years ago and it was a big hit with him. So, my husband and I knew when we had kids, we would have to go [...]

We wanted to keep our four toddlers happy while we visited the ‘happiest place on Earth.’ We started out on this mission two weeks before our trip with a crash course in Disney characters. We read Disney books, saw a few episodes of the Mickey Mouse Club [...]
Every young child in the Sacramento area knows the train museum: the huge, shiny engines on display; a real locomotive cab you can pretend to drive; the model trains winding through detailed landscapes; the toy train tables upstairs; and, of course, actual train rides!
Located in historic Old Sacramento, the California State Railroad Museum [...]
It’s me, PlayDrMom, bouncing in again to tell you about another great place we found to play.
How could you drive by this place and NOT want to go check it out?!? We knew we wanted to go when we heard about its opening and finally got to check it out last [...]
