Adventure Ship Bolero Sailing Charters – New Bern, SC

Want to get a different perspective of the New Bern area?  Book a sailing with Captain Paul on the Adventure Ship Bolero!  Captain Paul has over 35 years of sailing expertise and is a wonderful source of information and history of the area.  He offers 1 1/2 hour day and sunset cruises on the Neuse River (we did a sunset cruise and it was lovely).

Captain Paul is wonderful with kids and before they even get on his ship, he gives them a safety speech.  While on the water, he will let them have a turn at the helm and tells great pirate stories.  It will be a kid-favorite activity!

Alpine Lake Loop Trail – Great Basin National Park – Baker, NV

We really enjoyed hiking on the Alpine Lake Loop Trail (we had it to ourselves) and we found it suitable for younger kids.  The trail passes two beautiful alpine lakes, Stella and Teresa Lakes, with great views of Wheeler Peak.  If you still have energy, you can add to your hike a short walk to view the ancient Bristlecone pine grove.

Bodie State Historic Park – Bridgeport, CA

Bodie State Historic Park is truly a gem!  If you are in Eastern California, you MUST go!  Bodie is a genuine California gold-mining town and at one time, had a population of nearly 10,000 people.  This boom town was quickly abandoned when the gold ran out leaving stores with goods still on shelves, homes with furniture and the school house still with writing on the chalkboard.  The remains of this town have been preserved in their state of "arrested decay."  It was seriously one of my most favorite places I have ever visited in my life.

There is no camping opportunities in the park.  The road into Bodie is only paved part of the way, the rest is dirt and depending of the season, can be rutted.  It is well worth the drive and once there, parking is ample.  Don't forget to take the short walk to the town cemetery. It completes the picture of how hard life must have been in this remote town.
