See, the problem with taking frequent family road trips is that it gets to be a part of you, and you end up needing to hit the road as frequently as possible. We didn’t travel anywhere this month. It’s killing me.
However, staying put gave me the opportunity to plan out our next several adventures. Travel planning is almost as fun as the travel itself; without all the back seat fight refereeing. (“Stop singing in your brother’s ear. Let your sister pick the DVD. Give him back the pretzels. Did you just take her last sip? LET’S ALL PLAY THE QUIET GAME!!”)
In a few short weeks, the Go BIG family is wheels up! Here’s what the next few months look like:
February – Pittsburgh, PA
The world’s largest permanent robotics exhibition – “roboworld” – at the Carnegie Science Center
The world’s largest collection of Jurassic dinosaurs at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History
March – Philadelphia, PA
The Philadelphia International Flower Show, the world’s largest indoor flower show.
(reminder to self: refill Matt’s Zyrtec prescription.)
The World’s Largest Clothespin (outdoor sculpture)
The 9th Street Italian Market, the largest outdoor market in the U.S.
April – Williamsburg, VA
The world’s largest living history museum, Colonial Williamsburg. (We went last summer, but didn’t cover much ground as the temperature was hotter than the surface of the sun. So we’re going back, this time with Grandma and Grandpa!)
May – Cleveland, OH
World’s largest collection of rock memorabilia, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
World’s largest rubber stamp, the “Free” Stamp in Willard Park
If you know of any other “world’s largests” in these cities, spill it!
