About

Hi there! Welcome to A New Dawnn where every day is a new adventure! I’m Dawn, a Jersey Girl with a serious case of wanderlust. I’m mom to a 5 year old and a 15 year old, so every single day is a new adventure! Having two kids almost ten years apart is the best of both worlds. I get to experience things from my teen’s point of view as well as getting to live all the best moments of childhood all over again with my preschooler.

We are a multi-cultural family raising our kids bilingual and incorporating our Hispanic heritage into everything we do, even when we travel. Like that time when we partnered with GoRVing to encourage the Hispanic community to embrace camping and give it a try!

We love to travel and I wholeheartedly believe that one of the best gifts you can give your children is the gift of travel and experiencing new places and things. Material things don’t last but the memories we create together when we travel live on forever.

ABOUT THE BLOG

When I first started A New Dawnn, I had no idea it would grow into what it is today. I enjoy inspiring other parents to take the trip, create memories with their families and when you’re home and unwinding,

I hope to continue to inspire other parents to pursue their love of travel and traveling with their family by helping them find the perfect vacation spot to create family memories through travel that will last a lifetime.

Traveling, whether it’s a weekend road trip Massachusetts or a staycation right here in Philadelphia, allows us to get away from the hustle of everyday life and what seems like never ending activities and to-do lists. It lets us create memories with the kids and unwind, even if it’s only for a few days.

You’d be surprised at just how much you can get done in just 3 days. In fact, I’ve found that for most destinations, 3 days is the perfect amount of time!

I believe that some of our greatest memories are made through exploring the world around us. A few years ago I made the decision to begin homeschooling my oldest and now my daughter. This allows us to take our love of travel and combine it with hands-on learning experiences for all of us.  I love introducing my kids to the beautiful world around them and seeing the world through their eyes is priceless.

A self proclaimed car chic, my husband and I even met over our mutual love of Camaros. Here, you’ll find plenty of car care tips and tricks and our Road Trip Diaries series where we share our take on the different cars and trucks we drive all over the U.S. on our road trips. We even recently bought back the 1987 Chevy Camaro IROC-Z that initially brought us together. We’ll soon begin the major project of restoring the car and hopefully I’ll be featuring some of that on here too!

I hope to inspire other parents to pursue their love of travel and traveling with their family by helping them find the perfect vacation spot to create family memories through travel that will last a lifetime.

Traveling, whether it’s a weekend road trip Massachusetts or a staycation right here in Philadelphia, allows us to get away from the hustle and bustle of our crazy work schedules and what seems like never ending activities and to-do lists. It lets us create memories with the kids and unwind, even if it’s only for a few days.

You’d be surprised at just how much you can get done in just 3 days. In fact, I’ve found that for most destinations, 3 days is the perfect amount of time!

Other trips call for more time and we plan those a few times a year too. Like our once in a lifetime Disney Cruise to Alaska.

We’ve experienced new things, saw things we never imagined and created memories that we’ll all treasure for the rest of our lives and we can’t wait to do even more! I can’t wait to see what I check of my travel bucket list next!

Thanks for joining me on this wild ride!
