Topgolf Orlando

We had great fun playing the interactive golf games and you could easily spend half a day or an evening playing and eating or drinking. What I especially liked was that you could still score points even if you couldn’t hit the ball particularly far, this means it is also great for kids or people like me!

The Great Escape Room Orlando

If you are going to do any escape room with your autistic child, choose this one! Samantha is brilliant. She has much experience working with autistic children and knows how to handle anything that might come up. She explains clearly and gives enough thoughtful help to stop frustration. She is also more than capable of dealing with meltdowns or any other situation that may arise. When you book you can request that Samantha be supervising your room and they will arrange a time with you that she can be in the room with you.

Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester

I was pleased to see how much thought has gone into welcoming autistic guests to the Legoland Discovery Centre, especially taking into account so many autistic children love lego!

The 9/11 Memorial and Museum, New York

That is a day that most of us old enough to remember will never forget, those scenes etched in our memories forever. It is a day that changed so many lives around the world and one that should never be forgotten, along with those that unnecessarily lost their lives. It is a day our children should know about so those memories live on forever.

Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, PA

We walked the first long corridor of Eastern State Penitentiary, with it’s high ceilings, frequent doors, and its eerie silence, broken only by our voices and the head set I was wearing. It was easy to imagine being locked up in silence and this is how it was in the beginning. A state of the art prison system, where, once prisoners entered it’s doors, they were kept in solitary confinement, never seeing or speaking to anyone. When it was necessary to move from their cells they were blindfolded so as not to see another person by mistake.

A ride on an Amish buggy with Aaron and Jessica’s Buggy Rides, Lancaster Pennsylvania.

Arriving in Lancaster County in the 1720s, the oldest and largest Amish community in the country is the Amish of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. When I found out that Lancaster was kind of on our way from Washington DC to our next stop in Philadelphia, I just had to take the kids there! The Amish way of life has always interested and appealed to me so I was quite excited about this adventure.

The Medieval Times dinner and tournament, Baltimore

Our evening meal today was as exciting as a meal can be, in fact you could say we had a great knight (and yes I did spell that wrong on purpose!) For tonight we headed to Baltimore and stepped back in time to an era of knights, jousting and horses.
