What is the best tip for going on your babymoon to Maui?

Have an idea of what activities there are to do in Maui, but don't make a strict agenda. Just do what you feel like doing for that day. If there are activities you know you want to do while you're there, search online at least 1-2 months before you go to see if any reservations are needed, especially since COVID has occurred. Reservations are needed for dinner at a lot of good restaurants and even some state parks. Definitely have a photo shoot done through Flytographer!

Check Groupon for affordable couple massages, that was a nice bonus we did. Utilize some of the scooters around town, makes for a fun trip and can really save your feet.

Amy's Travel Tips for Charleston

What are the best places to eat and drink in Charleston?

Mex 1, which was recommended to us by our photographer, Michelle. We went there after photos, sat outside on the top deck and had amazing Mexican food! Highlight was the "Shark Attack" drink for the kids. Kids were asking to go back again and again...even after we left Charleston.

What are the best things to do in Charleston?

Besides our photos (isn't it fun seeing the town before people are all around?!?), we enjoyed The Market and especially Callie's Hot Little Biscuit! Those biscuits were phenomenal and they even make their gluten free ones from scratch-just give them 45 mins., so plan ahead! We loved Sullivan's Island and spent the day at the beach after enjoying a meal at Mex 1. We enjoyed walking The Battery in the evening as the sun went down, and kids were able to get the last of their wiggles out around the park and canons.

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Charleston?

Take them down to The Battery at the end of the day to get their wiggles out. Great view, walking path, plenty of parking, and our kids favorite...canons! Pack some snacks if you go to the Yorktown. There is so much to see, and we ended up leaving after 3 hours because we didn't have food with us (they have food trucks, but that day it was just sweets and coffee). Louise BBQ and Mex 1 were both fantastic options that are family friendly.

A really great walk is to wander over the Longfellow Bridge to Cambridge and walk along the Charles River. Great views of the water and Boston and it's so close you wouldn't even know you left the city!

Each season has something fun to do - yes even winter. Going on a clam chowdah crawl can take the best part of day if you also have a glass of wine or two at each stop and I promise you won't even notice the cold!
