    We're all headed to Cooperstown, NY for a week of 12u baseball this summer. Should be a good time with all the other team families. Gonna take the boys to Niagra Falls on the way home. I hear that this tournament is quite the spectacle and a life long memory for the kids. I'm excited to hang out with the other dads at the cabins and do some fishing too.

    Took the family to Gulf Shores last fall. Very nice place. You guys should have a blast. If you get a chance take the boat ride out to watch the Blue Angels practice, that was the highlight for me! Drinking beer and looking for shells on a sand bar with the Blue Angels flying overhead was surreal!

    That's a good time there. I lived on base for two different three year tours in Pensacola. I think it was every Wednesday they would practice. It was cool to be able to put that on the weekly schedule and just stop and watch them.
    Add in the pink Gulf shrimp and a cold one and boom. Small piece of heaven!

    I asked this as we stopped by Devil's Tower on my way home from Iowa. I have a mental list of where I want my kids and wife to go but this is a good opportunity to start building an actual list and action plan to get them to see more than just Wyoming. I want them to see that there is a lot to our world.

    Wife & I have been to the Caribbean 3 times over the last 10 years, that’s our preference.

    Kids were old enough (4&6) last year, so we did a Myrtle Beach family trip. Disney cruise this December, gotta be better than standing in line for hours and hours.

    Well said Scott, there’s a lot to see out there. Exposure to as much as feasible is critical IMHO.

    On our trip out to new Hampshire we are going to hit Niagara falls and then on the way home hits Gettysburg, Philadelphia(liberty bell and museum) and Hershey Pennsylvania. I like adding thing like that to our trips to places

    I am lucky where I can scout/fish/hunt out my front door so we go to a big city (other than denver lol) to see the wildlife at least once a year. Multi day river trips also take a week or so out of the summer. I have 2 young girls so Disneyland for a week - this year Disney world while cliche is also fun. Hope to get the entire family down to the patagonia region of chile to fish/kayak if not this winter next.

    Lots of these little mountain towns also have festivals - jazz, blues, mac n cheese, bike, beer, wildflowers, and we travel to hit some of em every year. Once July hits it is backpacks and fly rods on scouting trips looking for deer.

    Always wanted to hit the gulf coast been a lot of places never there and it looks like a great place to visit w family.

    We started taking a summer camping trip in the rockies in the summer, a few years ago, as I've shared b4.

    Yes, part of the trip will coincide with a 1/2 day spent where I drew a tag-so maybe not exactly 'non-hunting', lol, but most of it is hiking, fishing, sightseeing. We've seen Mt Rushmore, Devils Tower, Hobo Hot Springs, and stumbled on a neat town festival last August in Buffalo, WY.

    We just tent camp at public facilities mostly in the national forests, BLM or grasslands, but we usually plan to go out on the town the last day or so, where we will 'glamp' at KOA or private campground with showers to clean up from days in the mtns. Our biggest cost is fuel for the tundra, otherwise, its very econmical.

    I know the thread is about 'non hunting' but all that time on the ground in the summer pays dividends in the fall. You know the lay of the land: where to camp, get gas, truck stops to lay over if the weather gets nasty, and so on.
