Travel Adventure: Sandusky, OHIO

 Disclosure: I received discounted media rates on our hotel during this trip. 
Visit Ohio #travelblogger

When you think of Sandusky, Ohio, what do you think of? Cedar Point? Probably. However, we didn't go to Sandusky to see Cedar Point (this time). We went to Ohio to set out on an adventure, to find what else lies just over the border of Michigan and to spend time as a family exploring.

Let me take just a quick second and share with you a little about my long term goals. Over the next year my goal is to travel throughout the entire USA and then hopefully abroad. In traveling the US, I want to find out what makes America great. Do we still have that "sparkle" that we used to or is that old fashioned amazement gone? During my travels I hope to see, taste and hear the tradition and culture of America. To find the hidden treasures on the back roads of Route 66 and taste a New Orleans beignet.

Be A Hero, Help A Cause, Join the Run! @thesuperrun

The giveaway below has been provided by The Super Run

Do you fancy yourself to be a superhero? Being one may be easier than you think. So what is a superhero? A superhero is someone who cares about the well being of others, someone who stands up for someone when they cant stand up for themselves. Being a superhero is about having heart. If you've got heart, then you will want to check out a new multi-charity event that is all about giving back and having tons of fun.


Originating in Detroit, MI, this family centered event brings together tons of local charities making it easier for superhero's like you to help even more of them. On September 6th the Super Run will be making it's debut in Ann Arbor, MI. Super Hero's (participants) can sign up to run either a 1K or 5K race to help benefit their favorite charities. Along with the race, there will be family centered activities such as moonbounces, face painting, DJ's, magicians, and other goodies such as stickers and bubbles for the kids.

Check out this short video to learn more about this event and how/why it was started:


You can learn even more about this event and sign up to attend the Super Run on their website at http://www.superrun.com. You can also check to see when the Super Run is coming to a city near you!
