Vacation anyone?

We always say we will but we never do - go on vacation that is. I mean a real vacation, not just visiting relatives in distant lands. Today I was dreaming about getting Taka' out of the city this summer and began to seek out some places. All of these places seem to have nice reviews and aren't too far away. Maybe, just maybe I can manage to convince the men of the family to leave the hustle and bustle behind :) 

Time Out Chicago Kids had a great review for Feather Down Farm in Northwest Illinois. This reminds me my childhood, growing up on the family farm. It may be a little pricey but probably money well spent so a city slicking family can get back to basics. 

Wisconsin's Blue Mountain State Park also looks like a place our family would enjoy. Biking, camping and hiking - what's not to love? 

The last place I found that reminds me of growing up back home is Blue Springs Ranch. They have swimming, canoeing, hiking, etc and cabins if you're not up for roughing it.  

Hopefully we'll get to one of them this year to enjoy a little family time away from home.
