We do a lot of traveling (hence the blog) and visit a lot of places. We usually have a great time wherever we go. Sure, sometimes it’s fraught with disasters but in the end it winds up being fun (at least that’s how we remember it after a few years).
However, this past week, I experienced the best trip ever.
My daughter and I went to Storybook Land. Now, this is not really a “big” trip. It’s only about an hour away and only two of us went for one afternoon. None the less, I’m categorizing it as a trip.
Here’s why it was the best:
- we didn’t rush
- it was clean
- we walked all over without missing the stroller
- everyone was nice
- we had no expectations
- the weather was perfect
- we loved the rides and the exhibits
- there were no tears (NONE, that is unbelievable but true)
- it was age appropriate
- nobody got car sick
This all happened even though:
- it was expensive
- we had to park far
- it was crowded
Storybook Land is filled with all rides and small exhibits related to kid’s stories. I say exhibits because I don’t know what else to call them. Here are some examples of the exhibits:
A big sculpture of Moby Dick with his mouth open you can stand in
Snow White’s house that you can look in the windows and see and hear the elves singing and dancing (and a Dopey figure to stick your head in)
See, exhibits, right?
They also have rides, like:
They have a few rides that are faster, higher, and overall a bit scarier but my daughter doesn’t like those yet, so we stuck to the smaller rides.
Storybook Land is perfect for three through eight-year-olds. Younger or older can certainly go but I don’t think they’d enjoy it as much. It really is a clean, well-kept park that is lots of fun!
