Five for the Road is a Family Travel & Lifestyle Blog that Inspires Families to Enjoy Life’s Adventures at Home and on the Road.

Welcome to Five for the Road!

Each family has their own story. Their own family adventure. Each family is unique but we all have the same goals-to grow and connect with as a family.  I share ways to inspire family connections, create memories and enjoy the moments at home and when traveling.

Why…Five for the Road?

As a kid I loved getting in the car and going for drives. They were mini-adventures. Often stopping for ice cream along the way or at a park. It was the feeling of togetherness and family bonding. We connected. Now more than ever that connection needs to be nurtured. Families are busy and prioritizing family time is so important to me.

I started Five for the Road to encourage families to embrace their own family adventures. It could be a day trip, a mountain climb, or playing baseball in your backyard. Its about creating those lasting family connections.

Everyone’s road is different but we all have the same goal: creating a happy family life.

4 Fun Facts to Get to Know Me

Theme Parks are My Happy Place.
Disney, Universal, Legoland, Hershey Park, Busch Gardens!! I love them!! I am constantly following the latest news and attraction updates and I am usually planning our next theme park visit. Theme parks are my happy place and I love helping people plan their visits just as much as I love planning ours.

I LOVE to plan our Family Travel and Adventures.
I am always researching and planning our travel adventures. I have folders and notes on my phone of dream places I’d like to visit or epic road trips I’d like to take. We plan mystery days for our family a few times a year that include lots of stops and surprise places. I love itineraries and researching! This excitement is part of the vacation for me!! This love of planning helped push me to start this blog too. I was sending travel tips to friends by email and they all encouraged me to start!!

Family Traditions are so important to me.
The moments I remember most about growing up are the traditions we made as a family. Movie nights, cutting our own Christmas tree, summer vacations. They all make my memories from childhood so full. I want this for my children. I want them to remember their childhood as a time filled with family memories and togetherness.

Five for the RoadI live in yoga pants, graphic tees, and on coffee!
I am in yoga pants almost every day, coffee in hand. I like to be comfortable!

So that’s me! I want to share my passion and inspire your family too!! I believe in staying authentic and want this blog to be a place you can find easy and fun things to do with your family without all the research and planning that goes into it. Take a look around and please comment or contact me. I love to hear from you. I’m so excited you are here!
