What kid doesn’t imagine being a prince or princess in a royal palace? Germany can provide settings for kid’s best imaginings of royalty, with beautifully preserved and restored palaces that were once homes of real kings and emperors. Here are three our kids found the most awe-inspiring.
With technology advancing faster than ever, children globally are becoming attached to devices. Adults too. Our Netflix queue and ever-expanding inbox call our names even when we’re on vacation. We carry distractions with us everywhere, and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to truly connect with your loved ones.
As you drop from the lip of a wooden half-pipe, your body whipped up by gravity as the tube curls back and launches you, spinning and flying into the air, your kids finally realize just how cool you really are. This may not be you, but the guys who broke bones in the 70s and 80s, trying to land those perfect tricks on their skateboards or bikes, who crashed into the merciless concrete of empty pools, are all grown up now and have kids of their own. Like most parents, they want to teach their children what they know but they also want to protect them from getting hurt. The solution is Woodward, the most state-of-the-art, indoor/outdoor extreme sports park with 12 locations across North America. My son and I attended the opening of Woodward Park City in Utah on Dec. 14, 2019.
