Happy October!

Vintage Little C&G, in Hilton Head
Our very dear friend (and talented C&G graphic designer) is getting married soon, and we are very excited to watch him tie the knot. So I'm in the midst of travel planning for our brief weekend away and coming up with things to keep us busy after the nuptials.

It would be so lovely if there was a C&G style website for the city we're headed to, which would make my life much easier. But right now I'm stuck digging through various tourism websites, and being reminded why I started the blog in the first place.

Googling "travel with kids" in whatever selected city doesn't get you very far. I'm always interested in the insider information, what other families have done, what's worth the time and what's not. There's a lot to choose from where we're headed, and we've only got a day and a half. I'm all about efficiency, and of course where we can go for snacks and cocktails after our adventures. Which means I have a lot of windows open on my laptop right now, between Google maps, Yelp, Trip Advisor, and various online travel magazines.

As I've been narrowing down our itinerary, I realized it would be helpful to do some posts about putting together a plan. It's been a while since we've gone to a new city with the little C&Gs, so this upcoming trip requires some actual research. There's a lot of content on C&G about things to do in various cities, but I'd like to add information about how to tie those activities together. A perfect example is Venice, an amazing city with endless things to do, so how did I make an agenda for our three days on the island.

I always find my ideas for summer travel start to form in the early fall, so hopefully C&G will inspire you to start planning for 2014. Until then, happy October!
