Travel Tips

There is no better place than Crayola Experience to let your children’s imagination run wild. With multiple creative experiences, your day will be filled with fun and color.

 

If you are looking to visit a Crayola Experience when open and ready for business, there are locations in Chandler, Arizona; Easton, Pennsylvania; Mall of America, Minnesota; Orlando, Florida; and Plano, Texas. The Crayola Experience is a favorite for school trips, camp excursions or just a fun-filled day with the family.

 

As soon as you step into the Crayola Experience you won’t know what to do first — make sure you grab a map to help you navigate through the fun. Most of the attractions are included with admission, but some cost extra so make sure you keep an eye out for those.

 

Depending on when you go and how crowded it is, you might not be able to do everything, but there are a few must-do attractions your children will love.

 

I went to the Crayola Experience in Easton with campers last summer and the one thing they all wanted to do was create their own crayon. At the Wrap It Up attraction, kids get to pick the color of their personalized crayon and let their creativity fly while naming it. Next, they can print out the label and wrap it around the color they picked.

Another popular attraction is Melt and Mold; here you get to pick out two–three crayons, load them into the machine and then watch it melt down into a ring, car or critter to take home as a free souvenir.

 

Some other things you can’t miss at the Crayola Experience include the Color Playground, Character Meet-n-Greets, Drip Art and Modeling Madness. Other attractions may vary, but these are consistent at all locations.

 

To see the hours and attractions for each location, visit Crayola Experience and pick which location you are planning to visit post COVID-19.

Embark on a Fall Foliage Road Trip Through New York, Vermont and More

THE BEGINNING OF AUTUMN in America offers a time to savor the last precious moments of summer against the countryside’s mosaic of reds, yellows, oranges and purples. Before long, the chill of winter will enter the air and the trees will grow barren. This is not news to most of us. Indeed, leaf peeping has become ubiquitous. Most states have 24-hour toll-free hotlines to keep you informed of nature’s progress ... and then there’s the traffic. It seems the entire population of New York City and Boston climbs behind the wheels of cars on congested New England roadways. Thus we’ve tried to avoid the mainstream routes so you can truly appreciate the kaleidoscopic splendor. After all, a fall foliage road trip provides more than a mere drive. It also incorporates picking apples, tasting cider and hot doughnuts and leaving your vehicle behind to take a much-needed scenic walk to a lonely waterfall, where autumn’s colors reflect off the water.
