What a day we had hiking the Devil's Staircase portion of Wisconsin's Ice Trail in Janesville a few weeks ago! Looking forward to hiking it again in the spring! #hiking #nationalhikingday #hikingtrails #iceagetrail #mwtravel #janesvillefun @explorejanesvillewi #hikingfun #nature #naturelovers #hosted #trails #discovermidwest #midwestmoment #awesometravelbloggers #alittletimesandakeyboard
NEW POST CLICK LINK IN PROFILE: 3 UNIQUE PLACES TO VISIT IF YOU LOVE THE MOVIE, 'A CHRISTMAS STORY.' 🎅🤶
The holidays are quickly approaching and all I can think about are family traditions: bright lights, decorated trees, festive markets, and cozying up to watch a few heartwarming classics.

I know, I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet so it's crazy to talk about Christmas BUT I can't help it! We just visited a place near us that has the original Macy's in New York window displays from A Christmas Story. They've been on display for a few years now and we have never been. 
A child of the eighties, A Christmas Story, was always a favorite in our house. It slowly crept up in many homes as an American tradition across the nation. One cable channel even plays it for twenty-four hours straight over Christmas eve and day in a true marathon fashion.
I’m not sure I would consider it sentimental necessarily, but the hilarious struggle of 9-year-old Ralphie Parker forever made an imprint in our hearts.
The movie, wrapped in nostalgia and a realistic perspective, flourishes at portraying the good, the bad and the ugly of the holiday season.
Whether you could relate to the loving doting mother, the hard-working crabby Old Man, the silly younger sibling, or the serious older brother, the family dynamic rings true to many households.
Looking for a unique Christmas trip idea?
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE HOLIDAY MOVIE?

We are big fans of history and architecture. We found this gem in @fergusfallsmn. It is the Fergus Falls State Historic Hospital. The building is in the Kirkbride style and opened to patients in 1890. #hosted  #FergusFallsMN

I’m working on a post about our visit to @putnammuseum in @visitquadcities. There were a lot of exhibits and I can’t possibly include them all in the post. Like these interesting birds right outside the ancient Egypt room. My kids breezed right by the birds the case in their rush to see the mummies, but I had to pause. It was a cool room. Side note: It’s part of the ASTC reciprocal program so if you’re a member of @omahachildrensmuseum, you get in free. 👊 #visitquadcities #hosted

Today was a good day to take the kids to Mahoney @negameandparks - they had a lot of energy to burn. The new Venture Climb area is awesome and a good deal - $12 and the kids could climb and play in the huge active center all day.

I'm getting into the holiday spirit a little earlier this year. 🤶🏻I already started listening to Christmas music and watched a few @hallmarkchannel Christmas movies.🎄I also visited @bronnerschristmas in @frankenmuth where you can experience Christmas year-round. 🎅🏼

It's that time of year again. The "A Christmas Story" Comes Home exhibit is back at the Indiana Welcome Center in Hammond Indiana. I finally got over to see it last year before they packed it up for the year.

I took some pictures of the exhibit. I have a link in my Bio.

This year's exhibit will be on display starting tomorrow November 10, 2018, until December 31, 2018. Don't wait until the last minute like I did.

If you go early, you and the kids can see Santa.

Know of any other hotels in Missouri with unique pools?

This is my favorite time of the year- when I can throw on a sweatshirt and a pair of boots and hit the trails at one of Ohio's state parks. Did you know that Ohio offers free admission in its state parks? Just one more reason the Buckeye state should be on your #bucketlist. Do you love fall too? 🍁🍂🍃

"There's so much beauty to behold in the landscape of a downtown."⠀
⠀
Many of our trip destinations involve visiting the downtown areas of metropolitan cities. We find them to be filled with possibilities. For years the cities were subjected to urban flight, which propagated the growth of suburbs. In the past couple of decades this trend has seen a reversal. People are seeing the benefit of living in the urban core, where amenities are all within walking distance.⠀
⠀
For travel bloggers this is a huge bonus. We can minimize our driving time and spend more on visiting sites. Our visit to Des Moines, Iowa was a prime example of this concept. developers, along with the city planners, have been working for years to create an urban district that includes attractions, shops, and dining destinations. We were able to park our car and walk to almost every location on our three day itinerary. You can read our overview here.> https://buff.ly/2z6Kfib⠀
⠀
This same style of exploration is becoming more commonplace, as other cities are improving their downtown pedestrian paths to increase foot traffic. Some cities are even connecting different districts by using transportation methods that engage residents and visitors alike. Kansas City installed light rail that moves people between multiple districts, which are all seeing the benefit. This same type of system is being installed in Oklahoma City.⠀
⠀
What cities are you seeing this same style of redevelopment occur?⠀

This is where you’ll find me once the weather hits full winter mode in Omaha. No need for airfare; @omahazoo is my tropical getaway.😎🌴

There's no place like home. I love living in Ohio, but I admit that I didn't appreciate my home state very much until I moved and it wasn't my home any longer. You know that saying how absence makes the heart grow stronger? That's how I felt. When I no longer lived here, I missed it. Salt Fork State Park was one of the places I'd missed as I spent quite a bit of time in Salt Fork during my early teenage years. Where is home to you? .

We love to travel and experience new destinations. Like many of you, it's a chance to meet new friends and sample other cultures.t the end of our trips, we always know we will be returning to our hometown. Like a comfortable chair, it just feels right being back here. We know that it's just a matter o Af time, before we are back on the road, but in the meantime we will soak in our home in the Midwest.⠀

Just in time for Halloween! 🎃 I’ve created a West Michigan haunted road trip that maps out some of the most iconic “haunted” spots in the area. Maybe you’ll spot a ghost or two….or three!👻 Clickable link in bio.

If I sent out Christmas cards #GoPro #travelwi I might use this scene. On our canoe paddle on the Birchwood Canoe Routes, an October snow dusting gave new meaning to the word “snowfall.” Scott from @bullmoosepatrol portages a @wenonah_canoe Prospector as I photograph from a Wenonah Fusion. See more photos in my new blog post- link in profile or copy/paste here https://travelingted.com/2018/10/19/birchwood-canoe-routes-wisconsin/

Lucky us! The longest canopy walk in the United States is located right here in my home state. It just opened this month. So, of course, we had to go see it! It was pretty amazing! We highly recommend a visit to Dow Gardens in Midland, Michigan so that you can experience it for yourself. #canopywalk #dowgardens #whitingforest #midlandmichigan #mwtravel

We went to @figgeartmuseum to see “French Moderns: Monet to Matisse, 1850-1950” (don’t miss it). However, looks like we dress more like contemporary art lovers, doesn’t it? 😆 Side note: this is the only museum I’ve visited with crocheted art coveting the trees in front. I’ll have to dig up a photo of one. #visitquadcities #partner

The Merchants National Bank in #grinnelliowa is one of eight #jewelboxbanks designed by Louis Sullivan. A step inside the front door reveals this incredible stained glass and prairie style chandelier. .

"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off of our souls."⠀

This weekend we are escaping to Lucas, Kansas for some artful exploring. This grassroots art community is about three hours from Kansas City, but a world away from the our normal routine. While the small town has been on our radar for a while, it was the urging of a local friend who pushed us to move up our visit. (Thanks, Jenny!)⠀
⠀
While Lucas would make a good day trip destination, we are actually heading out Friday evening, so we have all of Saturday to explore. Be sure to follow along on our "Story" to see what we uncover in this unusual destination. ⠀
