Dreaming of Summer #daytrips




 Aiden and I like to make the most of our summers.  We are on the go a lot and have a lot of fun.I know it's still a little early but I am already thinking ahead to what we can do this summer.  I came across a list of fun places in NC to take your children and after reading it, I realized that we had been to a lot of the places listed.  These are some of our favorites.  If you live in NC, I hope you have or will give them a try. 

 
Carowinds
Visit the Carowinds website to learn about all the fun to be had there.  We have season passes and spend days during the summer here.  


Tweetsie Railroad
We have been to Tweetsie twice and have really enjoyed it.  When we go, we usually spend a couple of nights because there is so much to do in the area.  Check out Tweetsie and head there for a visit. 

Here are some other places we visit while we are in the Tweetsie area:

Chimney Rock
This one scares me but it's amazing once you get up there!  Chimney Rock is a must see and do. 



Grandfather Mountain and the Swinging Bridge
Another scary on for me, but Aiden loves it!!  He went across this bridge when he was 2 years old with his Daddy and I stayed on the other side. I have never actually crossed the bridge because I just can't do it!! Head over and check them out on their website.


Cape Hatteras Lighthouse
There is so much to do in this area.  We spent a couple of days exploring here.  You will love it.  Check out their website to see what all there is to do.  We did get stranded because it rained really hard and we were out and about and the road to our Bed and Breakfast which was near the lighthouse flooded.  That was an experience.  We had to spend the night back in Kill Devil Hill in a hotel.  





Ocracoke Island
Aiden loved pirates and was super excited to visit Blackbeard's favorite Island.  Ocracoke has many fun things to do.  We rode the ferry over from Hatteras and spent the day there. 


I would love to hear about where your family likes to go during the summer!  I love making memories and exploring with Aiden!  Isn't being a Mommy the best?
