Go on a Safari Wilderness Experience in Central Florida with Kids


Have you ever made friends with a water buffalo? We did! And you can too when you go on a Safari Wilderness experience in Central Florida.

We were so happy to be invited to visit the Safari Wilderness Ranch in Lakeland, during our recent family trip to Florida. They offer a rare and unique experience that my family will not soon forget. We enjoyed spectacular up-close encounters with free roaming ostriches, llamas, zebras, African watusi and many other species, including endangered ones! Many animals came right up to our safari vehicle and we got to hand feed them, which was incredible! 

The Vessel at Hudson Yards & So Much More to See and Do


The Vessel at Hudson Yards is NYC's New Landmark


Have you seen New York City’s newest landmark?

Meet the Vessel! A new kind of public landmark. It’s NYC's new landmark and the centerpiece of the new Public Square and Gardens at Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s west side. The Vessel (as it is known for now since you can suggest a new name) is an architectural masterpiece meant to be climbed and explored  — 154 interconnecting staircases, 2,500 steps, and 80 landings. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen in NYC and the city views are incredible as you climb to the top!
