Silverwood Theme Park

Have you visited Silverwood Theme Park & Boulder Beach this year? Well, if you haven't, there's still time to get in on the fun, plus you're just in time to check out Scarywood, which makes a visit to Silverwood Theme Park even better!!

Located 43 miles northeast from Spokane, WA, and only 17 miles from Coeur d'Alene, ID, Silverwood Theme Park is a 200-acre property with more than 70 rides, shows and attractions including their new giant water slide, Riptide Racer, which opened earlier this season. 

Even though the summer-only Boulder Beach closed on September 5th (the same weekend as their Coaster Classic Car Show), the rest of the park is still open on weekends. Scarywood starts on September 30th and runs until October 29th (annual park closing), where Halloween guests will be trick or treated to screams, roaming monsters and haunted attractions that are sure to give you nightmares!

Are you ready to go? Several hotels offer Silverwood Theme Park packages for families which includes an overnight stay and admission tickets, such as the Best Western Plus Coeur d'Alene Inn. Plus, there's also a popular RV and campground onsite that comes complete with free WiFi and discounted theme park admission tickets.

Jurni: The Ultimate Sit-On, Carry-On Suitcase

I've always had a love-hate relationship with my carry on luggage. It's hard to find something that's practical, affordable and, heaven forbid, offers something new?? Take a look at this innovative carry-on made by Jurni, it's a great response to that old adage: built a better mousetrap. Jurni's slogan is The Ultimate Sit-on, Carry-On Suitcase. That's right, I said sit. Let's take a look!

Made by a UK company that brought the kids ride-on Trunki suitcase to the world ten years ago (see just one of them below), Jurni is its latest Indiegogo funding success. This sleek, airline regulation compatible carry-on is made from durable, hard plastic and can hold up to 220 pounds, meaning the average person can wheel themselves around the airport anytime they'd like! 

Besides it's unique rideability, Jurni also has a really cool portable pod on top the suitcase that's removable. It's perfect for those necessities you need to easily get at during your flight. Other features include a hidden compartment in the bottom, extra storage in the flap, and an awesome removable shelf that allows items in the suitcase to be stacked vertically, hence taking up less room.

Aimed at the hip millennial crowd, Jurni wants to offer stress-free traveling while providing cool accessories like an organizer set, a wash bag and even a Jurni charger. It comes in 3 colors, plus there's a 2-year guarantee and all the parts are replaceable.

3 Great RV Road Trips to Take this Fall

Fall is the best time to travel in an RV as there's less traffic on the road, plus the weather is cooler overall. How much time do you have? Where are you located, or are you renting an RV? What interests you? So many questions, I know, but here are 3 great RV road trips to take this fall!

Florida Keys

Florida Tourism
This is one of my favorite places to explore - there's so much history and unique things to do, plus the Keys are naturally beautiful in themselves. There are tons of campgrounds to enjoy along the 127-mile stretch of highway that starts in Miami and divides the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, with Bahia Honda State Park and John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park being popular stops. Marathon is home to a Turtle Hospital and the famous Seven Mile Bridge; Key West has the Southernmost Point, Butterfly & Nature Conservatory, and the Ernest Hemingway Home. Key Largo offers an interactive Dolphin Plus adventure, while all of the Florida Keys entice scuba divers and fisherman from around the world.

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park
Having opened in 1872, Yellowstone was the first national park in the world! There are 12 campgrounds to chose from in this 2+-million acre nature extravaganza, and the 9 visitor stations/museums will be more than happy to help you plan your days in Yellowstone National Park. Activities can range from watching the iconic Old Faithful Geyser, to hiking, biking, fishing and picnicking, where you might see some of 67 mammal and 285 bird species that make Yellowstone National Park their home. Be sure to see the Paint Pots with their almost unbelievable striking colors, Mammoth Hot Springs and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.

Pacific Northwest

Orca Whales Passing The Patos Island Lighthouse
Seattle is one of the most popular Pacific Northwest destinations, and is home to attractions such as the Space Needle, Pike Place Market and the Seattle Aquarium, where visitors can learn all about the local coastal species. If you're into hiking, check out Mount Rainer National Park (southeast of Seattle) or take a Washington State Ferry from Anacortes over to the San Juan Islands where you may even see killer whales! Other options to explore the area include visiting Mount St. Helens and North Cascades National Park.
