Let’s Travel: Florida, Part 2 – The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

Welcome back for part two of my Let’s Travel: Florida blog. Hopefully, you enjoyed learning about St. Augustine. It really is a lovely little city with plenty of history and charm.

Now, let’s move on to the second part of my trip…Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter! This part of the trip fulfilled a bucket list item for me. Harry Potter has been a huge part of my life from the beginning. I have always loved to read and I can remember the moment that I got the first Harry Potter book. My grandmother picked it up for me as a present…and as they say, the rest is history!

Let’s Travel: Florida, Part 1 – St. Augustine

Another month and another trip…I seem to be traveling quite a bit lately. Not necessarily by design, a lot of the trips have been last minute, but this one has been in the works for a while now.

I really wanted to go on a real vacation and I really neeeeded to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter πŸ™‚ Yes, I am a 30-something and I freaking love Harry Potter – deal with it. However, I knew that I wasn’t going to spend almost a week with just Harry Potter. So, to get the most out of the trip it was split into 2 parts:

1) St. Augustine and the beach

2) Harry Potter

For this reason, this trip will be presented as a two-part blog!

So here we go! Part one – St. Augustine!

Healthy Road Trip: Wilmington, NC

Being healthy on a road trip can be hard…you spend long hours in a car with nothing to do…there are convenience stores and fast food along the way…I get it!! However, it can be done! With a little preparation and a plan to stay active while you are away it will be like you never left the comfort of your daily routine!

For this trip, we drove to Wilmington, NC. If you have never been I highly recommend it! It is a cute little beach/river town with tons of things to do and see.

Here is how I stayed on track while on the road and what we got up to in Wilmington!
