I would almost bet that you did not know there was a Visitor Center dedicated to PEZ Candy. I would also bet you didn't know it was home to the largest PEZ dispenser in the world! Did you know that on top of all of the memorabilia you can view and items you can buy, you can also take a peak into the PEZ production area? I took a visit to the PEZ Visitor Center located in Orange, Connecticut (I bet you didn't know there was such a place as Orange, Connecticut) and I'm spilling all the beans, I mean PEZ!

When planning trips in the past, typical Google searches would be, "closest restaurants" or "closest bars". But now, traveling with a 9 month old, the first thing I Google are "kid-friendly activities". Going anywhere with a 9 month old is different in a lot of ways; places we visit, types of restaurants we go to and most importantly, what we pack.
A few years back I was awarded the opportunity to travel out to California for a work trip. We would spend our working days in Oakland and work basically sun-up through mid-night. Due to a misunderstanding with out hosts, my coworkers and I found ourselves with an entire day free of work obligations. We decided to take the BART over to San Francisco and explore.
