5 Fun Things to Do with Little People (6 and Under) on the Royal Mile

I know, I know. The Royal Mile is just so touristy. And it is.

You have to do it. Now that that’s out of the way though, let’s talk about how much this traveling tribe really did enjoy being there. And our tiny travelers? They’re already making…

Every trip we need to find a way to take a vacation from our vacation. When we’re at Florida’s Emerald Coast, we find that break, that grounding place, at Ft. Walton’s Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park. And each time we’re in that part of the world, we keep going back (because, you know, OTTERS…
