If you remember, last fall we had the chance to check out the 2017 Mazda CX-9. And if you know me personally, I’ve raved about it ever since. It was just one of those vehicles that sparks conversation with strangers, and impress passengers. This mid-size, three-row crossover SUV is a great family friendly vehicle with the looks and performance to please everyone. With three rows, families with the

You don’t have to go far to end up in the wild west! Located a little over an hour from the Bronx, Wild West City is celebrating it’s 61st year of bringing western heritage and fun to generations of families. So on a beautiful Sunday morning, we jumped in the car and headed to the wild wild west to see what it was all about. Wild West City
If you recall, we last spent some time in the Hyundai Elantra Sport back in 2015. So,we were excited to spend another week in this year’s model to see what changes had been made and what features remained. With a 201 horsepower 1.6L Turbo GDI engine and your choice of either a 6-speed manual transmission or available 7-speed dual clutch transmission, the Sport really stands out among the Elantra family.
By Pope Jackson Anyone who knows me, knows I love outdoor sports. As a member of the Bronx River Alliance I paddle the river as much as possible. Nothing gets me excited like amazing experiences right in my backyard. NYC has never had a shortage of these, but the outdoor adventures were limited. Well the wait is finally over. Two new attractions featuring three exciting experiences have been completed
Earlier last week we had the fun opportunity to check out the new Nature Trek at the Bronx Zoo. With an awesome structure to trek and climb and some pretty cool stations to explore and play- be sure to plan out some time to spend here on your next trip to the zoo. Nature Trek is included in your Total Experience ticket and no food or drink
We recently had the chance to check out the Lenovo Yoga Book. What feels like a cross between a laptop and a tablet, it’s an insanely lightweight device with a halo keyboard, real pen, and 15+ hours of battery life. It can be opened up and used as a laptop, folded and used like a tablet, or you can turn the keyboard off and sketch with the real pen
It is the wise mother who gives her child roots and wings. Mother’s Day is just around the corner. May 14th to be exact. And if you’re looking for something special to get for the mom in your life, we’re loving this ancestry kit idea from 23andMe. It’s a great way to bond over family history and spend the day hearing stories, looking through old photos, and learning
This year’s Girls Night Out at the New York International Auto Show with the ladies of SheBuysCars was another fun night of talking cars and fashion, with plenty of vino and bubbly to boot. Whether you attend the auto show to search for your next car in your price range or simply to keep up with the latest in luxury from automakers, it’s an annual event many look forward
Last month we spent some time with the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander GT. With this V6 Engine complete with third row seats, we were ready to test it out as both a car for travel as well as a vehicle for larger families. The Quartz Brown colored Outlander arrived on the eve of our anniversary weekend, so after dropping off the kids with family, we headed thirty minutes north of
When our friends over at Verizon asked us to check out the Google Home, I was very curious to see how I’d feel about it. While Google is my best friend and my life would be a hot mess without the many apps and services it provides- I wasn’t quite sure if I’d ever want to bring something like the Home into my home. But, I was curious to try it
Our little family loves to explore. While school and finances may not allow us to travel internationally as much as we’d like, we appreciate all that the world has to offer- starting in our own backyard. So that means local road trips and exploring. And while a larger vehicle for longer trips might be appealing, the savings factor with a smaller car is what allows us to travel more.
