    A Day Trip to Wilmington NC | Railroad Museum & USS North Carolina Battleship

    We have a new tradition of going to the coast every summer with the family with the kids before they head back to their dad’s. I haven’t been to Wilmington NC in a good while, so we spent the day there visiting the USS North Carolina Battleship and the Wilmington Railroad Museum.

    10+ Pretty Epic Places To Visit While In Louisville, Kentucky

    Louisville, Kentucky is largest city, sits on the Ohio River along the Indiana border. Every May, its race course Churchill Downs hosts the Kentucky Derby, a renowned horse race whose long history is explored at the Kentucky Derby Museum.
