Spotlight Thursday: Daytripping Mom

Welcome to

Do you ever sit at home racking your brain, trying to figure out what fun activity or event to attend with the kids?  I know I do!  Before the “blog age”, I used to wonder the internet aimlessly, looking for things to do, lost in a world of infinite information.  Nowadays, I have my go to list of sites to read to keep me up to date with new family friendly activity information.  For all things Southern California, I often turn to Daytripping Mom.  Aracely, the writer behind is always sharing discounts, giveaway, free museum days, and endless activity ideas with her readers.  Besides being a great site for locals, I think her site is a valuable resource for families planning on visiting Southern California as well.  Here are some recent examples of why I think her site is so great:

  • After reading her post on where to see the Rose Parade Floats up close after the parade,  I have marked in on my calendar for next year.
  • She is always putting together these great lists or free museum days or discounted fun attractions like this one about free and cheap things to do around Southern California.
  • There always seems to be some sort of giveaway going on like tickets to Elmo’s Birthday Party at the Discovery Science Center or tickets to Sealife Aquarium.

If you live, love, or visit Southern California, add Daytripping Mom to your blogroll.   You can also find her on Facebook and Twitter.

Stay tuned for a great Huntington Beach themed Monday Madness which will be co-hosted by the OC expert herself, Daytripping Mom…
