Handicrafts to Look for in South America

One highlight of any trip to South America is all the amazing local shops, handicrafts and authentic pieces you can take away as a memento from the trip. Not only is the shopping aspect a fun family activity on your next trip, and you get away with some great gifts, but the entire experience is a fun memory to have with the kids. The extra special attention you pay to the tradition and craftsmanship behind a simple piece we may take for granted at home is all the more special on a family trip.

The Peninsula Beverly Hills makes staying in a suite even sweeter! Guests who book one of the hotel’s elegant suites are offered complimentary use of a luxury BMW for the length of their stay.

Maine’s Winter Family Fun

Heading north for the winter may seem like the last thing you want to do. From packing all the down-feather coats and warm boots to loading the kids up in the cold, it can seem a lot less like a vacation and more like work, but, for snow bunnies and winter-loving families, it’s all worth the effort.
