Attending the Awe-Inspiring Houston Art Car Parade

When I moved to Houston, I noticed something different about the cars I saw on the road in my neck of the woods. While driving around the Heights I remember seeing one car painted with colorful cat faces and another covered in Day of the Dead figurines. When I finally learned these cars were associated with the Houston Art Car Museum and annual Art Car Parade, I knew I (and my family) needed to see more. We now try to go to the parade every year, and it never disappoints. 

Koreatown with Kids: Best Places to Shop, Eat, and Play

One of the best reasons to endure the cost of living and the crowded streets of New York City is just how easy it is to explore other cultures with your kids. There are vibrant ethnic enclaves around every corner, but few quite as vibrant as Midtown Manhattan's Koreatown.

Developed in the 1980s, this small enclave can be found between West 31st and West 33rd Streets and Fifth Avenue and Broadway. The main drag is Korea Way, aka West 32nd Street between Broadway and Fifth Avenue. Although the district is small, really just two city blocks, it is packed with more than 100 shops and restaurants. If you can't see them, look up. Much like Seoul, the businesses in K-Town are stacked on top of each other to maximize space.  

We've rounded up 13 of the best places to explore in Manhattan's Koreatown as a family, so read on before your next outing. Peruse our Neighborhood Guides for more NYC nabes to explore, including those in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.

Scariest Haunted Houses and Attractions in Connecticut

Halloween isn't all pumpkins and hayrides. For many, this time of year is more about thrills, chills, horror and fright and less about trick-or-treating (or trunk-or-treating). Good thing Connecticut has some of the scariest haunted houses you'll ever find! These frightful attractions are geared towards older children, teens, and adults and not recommended for very young children. If you're looking for the real deal, check out our post on the Real Haunted Houses of Connecticut. For those who just want to have a spooky-good time, then a haunted house attraction is just the thing. From amusement parks filled with zombies to empty summer camps and abandoned school buildings, there is something to scare the pants off of everyone. We've rounded up the scariest haunted houses across the state, and a couple that are right over the border, for all of your frightful fun this Halloween season. Check it out...if you dare!
