NOLA – Audubon Insectarium & Butterfly Garden!

Great hands-on learning fun at the Audubon Insectarium & Butterfly Garden in New Orleans, Louisiana! | ourtraveingtribe.com

The Tribe hasn’t shared where we’ve been or what we are doing in awhile!  That doesn’t mean that things haven’t been happening, it’s just that after being on the road for over 7 years, we sometimes want a break from sharing! lol.  But, we’re back, ready to show you some of the fun places that […]

Tips for visiting the San Diego Zoo…

We loved the hippos at the San Diego Zoo!

While we were staying near San Diego, we chose to lay low over the Christmas holiday break.  That was a great choice for us, and we loved the rv park we were in, but that also left only one week to do what we wanted to do in San Diego!  So we packed in as […]

Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, OR – why we went back!

watching the sharks in the Passages of the Deep area in the Newport, OR aqaurium

One of the very first destinations that we stopped at on our first year out, was the Oregon Coast Aquarium, in Newport, OR.  Since that time we have measured all other aquarium visits against it, and I have often wondered if its high ranking in our esteem was partially influenced by it being our first […]

Family travel on the cheap with reciprocal zoo and museum memberships…

alligator snapping turtle at the OKC Zoo...

  One of the many things that we love about being mobile, is that we are able to take the kids to visit fun and educational places all across the nation, including zoos, aquariums, children’s museums, and science museums. Now that we have been on the road for over 5 years, we have learned some tips […]

One of the things that I love about traveling with kids of all ages (we have 9 with us, ages 2 to 18), is that we have an excuse to go anywhere! LOL!  We need to go to the children’s museums for the littles, the science museums for the middles, and unique stops like the […]

Greensboro Science Center – check out their new Sciquarium!!!

This past week the kids and I went to the Greensboro Science Center – which happens to be a museum, zoo, and aquarium, all wrapped up in one great destination!  The museum covers all sorts of topics, and does so through a variety of different types of exhibits!  They have recently completed a major addition […]

Audubon Aquarium, NOLA…

The Audubon Zoo was such a hit that we knew the Audubon Aquarium would be fabulous too!  We surely were not disappointed! The area in front of the aquarium is under construction (but it does not interfere with the entrance); a public water park is in the works.  😀 Right inside the entrance is a […]

Audubon Zoo, NOLA (that’s New Orleans, Louisiana ;) )…

During our 2 weeks in Louisiana, we were able to spend 5 days at the Bayou Segnette State Park near New Orleans.  A couple of those days were spent visiting New Orleans. One of the days that we went into NOLA, we stopped at the Audubon Nature Institute’s Zoo. Located in what is now the […]

Visiting the Houston Zoo…

Friday, the tribe drove into Houston (TX), to do something other than fishing.  😉  We spent the day at the Houston Zoo!  The zoo had excellent parking, and the grounds were clean and well kept.  After getting through the gate, the first place that we went was the aquarium building…The tanks were well lit, and […]

Texas State Aquarium, yep, MORE pics ;)

We had two favorite places at the aquarium.  Our favorite ‘show’ was the dolphins…  The aquarium has 2 dolphins.  They are kept in a large tank with an underwater viewing area… Topside, Peanut got in trouble for leaning past the rails… For the show, the majority of the tribe sat in the ‘splash’ section.   Caleb, […]
