About UsHow We Vacation is a family travel blog that documents our adventures from coast to coast and the tips and tricks we learn along the way. We’ll take things overseas (eventually), but for now we’ll focus on our family’s journey across the good ole U-S- of A! As we say “Let’s Go Everywhere!”


Emily keeps busy as a stay-at-home mom and loves to bake and read. She is a popcorn snob, a chapstick addict, and loves all things Judy, Audrey, and Lorelai. Her next bucket list item is to see the Northern Lights. Her favorite restaurant, right now, is Founding Farmers in Washington, D.C.


Jeff works in public relations and loves gardening, American history, ’90s country music, and Fantasy Football. He is an aspiring magician, a frustrated golfer, and loves that feeling of discovering a new city for the first time. His next bucket list item is to explore the Maine coast. He has enjoyed every square inch of Washington, D.C., and his favorite restaurant is Lambert’s in Austin, Texas.
