We have been able to enjoy several trips to northern Kentucky/Cincinnati area and made some great memories at classic Cincinnati fun spots. But recently I met a lady who is making it even easier to create great family adventures. Adventures Around Cincinnati – A Parent’s Guide to Unique and Memorable Places to Explore with your Kids is a great resource to help plan your summer fun!

Adventures Around Cincinnati Book Giveaway

My husband and I love to take our kids on day trips. We regularly pack a cooler, grab the camera and pack the family in the van with a general idea of where we are going and take off on an adventure. Our kids know that when we head out on our adventures, we will end up making some fun memories and doing something unexpected. Our Facebook friends have come to expect that while some families take one or two big trips a year, we squeeze in as much fun in a 24 hour period as anyone they know.

Adventures Around Cincinnati coverAdventures Around Cincinnati is a book written by 2 moms who know how to pack adventure into every day. The book is divided into 3 sections. The first section is full of ideas on how to plan adventures with your kids. There are some great tips to making sure your outing is as successful as possible.

I love the tip about making sure you call ahead before you drive to a destination. You never know if plans or hours will change. A simple call can help ensure success.

The second section is a full, detailed list of everything you can imagine in Cincinnati and surrounding areas. Since my parents are just across the river, I plan to go through and highlight the places we all want to visit on our next trip North.

Each adventure destination has contact information, admission fees, hours of operation with basic information and tips.

This is a must have resource for anyone traveling through or to Cincinnati, OH or the surrounding areas.

Visit the Adventures Around Cincinnati Website for more information, photos, stories and ideas.

    I like the fact that we don't plan day trips - they often happen spontaneously in our house. One minute we'll be watching the morning news, the next minute we'll be hopping in the car and leaving for the day!

    I LOVE this giveaway and definitely want this book! We have yet to go to Cincinnati with the kid!

    I love planning local day trips because we can block out an hour or two and do something fun or interesting. If there is more to do or see, we can always go back!
