Summer vacation is here! And so is the summer issue of Twist Family Travel Magazine! It’s full of tons of great content including the best family vacation ideas! Summer is my favorite time of year so this was a fun issue to get to work on. So far our family has stuck to a few of our favorite destinations (Palm Springs and the High Sierra Mountains in California). But I think we are all itching to start exploring a little more. Swiping through Twist Magazine online is certainly part of the cause for this wanderlust. The content and contributors that Andrea and Keryn have pulled together are really fantastic! Plus they have an awesome giveaway to a gorgeous hotel in Carlsbad, CA! Head to Andrea’s post to enter! The magazine covers everything you need to inspire, plan or shop for your next family vacation. For this issue I contributed a super simple fruit dessert that is perfect for your Fourth of July block party plus a round-up of great weekender bags. My recipe (on page 60) doesn’t include any cook time, just a little bit of prep. It’s super easy and totally delicious and the kids will love them!
I’m obsessed with weekender bags! I found four (head to page 11) that are super stylish and practical. I use mine for traveling but they are also the perfect size for packing up our family when we head out for a day of exploring or to swim at a friend’s house. I also wrote a review of the Pacific Edge Hotel in Laguna Beach (page 47)! The photo above was taken in the lobby. It’s the perfect summer vibe and a great way to welcome you to this beach front hotel. This hotel should be included on your family vacation ideas list, for sure. Find out why in my review!
Plus, their restaurant, The Deck, serves AMAZING food! This is my favorite chacuterie board. Ever. That’s reason enough to stay at a hotel, right? But trust me, there are many more reasons why this hotel is one of my favorites.
