It’s called the ‘Thousand Islands’ but even cooler is that there are actually more than 1,800 sub-continental pieces of land that make up the region. The islands, in the St. Lawrence River, straddle the border of the U.S. and Canada. Today, the region is a hub for outdoor enthusiasts who come for hiking, boating and kayaking. But the history of the area can be explored much deeper in places like Gananoque.

The Victorian town, in Ontario, on the Canadian side, is often called the gateway to the 1,000 Islands. In this video we have show you some of the top spots to visit on a trip, including a cruise with the Gananoque Boat Line to spots like the massive Boldt Castle, a tour with 1,000 Islands Helicopter Tour for incredible aerial views and a bike and picnic along the the Rideau Canal. When it comes to a place to stay, you don’t want to miss the Gananoque Inn which offers easy access for water activities like boating and fishing and is walking distance to the main street for breweries and restaurants.

  • I’m all for weekend getaways close to home, especially with an infant in tow. And even better when we find a spot where our dog, Titan, is treated like a King! Which is why the Limelight Hotel was our top pick when we were headed to Aspen, CO. Plus, it's centrally located, has a great restaurant for dining and drinks, an incredible Continental breakfast and the decor and design gives a nod to a mix of contemporary styled blended with the outdoors.

  • When I travel, I love walking around to explore but that often means my heels stay put. Then I found OTBT - Off The Beaten Track - Shoes. Some of my favorites are Flower Child in Red Sutter - which are comfy with a rubber outsole & cork footbed, but at the same time very chic to keep style on the road.

  • Our date nights are now a party of three. We love spots like The Melting Pot for fondue. We arrived at 5:30 and was 9:00 before we knew it. #datenight

  • When the mountains call we love exploring the biking trails in Aspen, CO. Our go-to outfits from Club Ride Apparel are super comfy for biking, but also perfect for a stop for drinks at one of Colorado’s breweries. Here I am wearing the Trixie top & Joy Ride shorts that are lightweight and come with a zippered pocket for storage. TJ is wearing the Bolt Western-inspired shirt, also from Club Ride Apparel.
