Tucked away on one side of Charleston lies the South Carolina Aquarium, the destination of choice by the currently shark mad 3-year-old (in keeping with the travel tradition that we have that the children also get to decide a little of what we do/see on each trip).

Wild Florida. One of the things we love best about Florida is its incredible nature. We visited Circle B Reserve in LakeLand yesterday for a spot of Alligator spotting…
