Black Walnut Point Inn - gay Chesapeake Bay B&B

Gay Chesapeake Bay B&B On Tilghman Island

By any measure, Black Walnut Point on Maryland’s Tilghman Island is unique. A private gate and a half-mile drive through fifty seven acres of bird sanctuary leads you to a natural paradise and our six-acre island of lawn.

As the sun rises over the Choptank River and sets over the length of Chesapeake Bay, you’ll enjoy sea breezes, ocean waves and endless gorgeous water views at our gay Chesapeake Bay B&B.

Our property is chock-full of wildlife – a pair of nesting eagles, osprey and black ducks, migrating butterflies, water fowl and singing birds. You may even see dolphins, skates and schools of bluefish out on the bay. And the back dock, looking out over the cove, is the perfect place to watch the herons fish.

Fort Frederica National Monument on on St. Simons Island – 2TravelDads

Fort Frederica National Monument on on St. Simons Island - 2TravelDads

The Golden Isles are a wonderful destination along a Georgia Coast road trip. They are beautiful and full of history. Fort Frederica National Monument is located on St Simons Island in the Golden Isles, and is a gorgeous spot to explore, especially on a sunny afternoon.

. Fort Frederica National Monument for Kids

Historical sites rock for traveling new places with kids. Here’s why: they’re a snapshot of a moment in time that we’ll never experience again. Sometimes those sites are really well preserved and you can step back in time with little use of the imagination. Heck, sometimes there are even folks in costumes to help you imagine. And then sometimes you visit an historical site that is all but gone, like Horton House on Jekyll Island or Fort Frederica on St Simons Island, Georgia.

Where did it go? If it’s gone, should you still visit it? We’ll help with some answers and tips for visiting Fort Frederica in the Golden Isles of Georgia, but let’s just say first that it is totally worth the stop and even something you should carve out time for…as long as you’ve already had a beach day. Anyways, keep reading because yeah.

Incredible Hikes to Take Your Breath Away – Keep Calm and Wander

Incredible Hikes - Mt.Sinai

These 6 incredible hikes will take your breath away. It did to me and I could still remember how these hikes changed me as a traveler. I was never a fan of hiking, especially when the scorching sun is unforgivable. But I learned to adapt to harsh weather conditions and make sure I wear appropriate clothes. 

Nature is therapeutic. In fact, in Canada, doctors can now prescribe trips to National Parks to enjoy nature. And what better way to enjoy nature than go on a hike? It doesn’t matter how long or how physically-demanding it is. A walk in the woods or enjoying silence by the lake is a break from the topsy-turvy world out there. Of course, for the adventurous and physically-fit souls, the mountains, the cliffs, the deep oceans, and other natural wonders are waiting. 

Let me show you these 6 amazing hikes that really blew me away.

Incredible Hikes #1 – Great Wall of China

While I was living in Beijing for 5 years, I had opportunities to climb and hike the Great Wall of China so many times. I even attended the first ever electronic dance rave held at the Jinshanling part of the Great Wall. It was chaos but fun
