Welcome to fifi + hop, a travel blog dedicated to unique destination recommendations within the United States, international vacation reviews and travel tips. We have a focus on family travel and trips and vacations with kids, as well as those get-aways without. We all know how important child-free trips can be!
My name is Corey and I am the founder of fifi + hop. I have always loved to travel, ever since I was a young teenager when I did a volunteer program in Greece. I later spent a college semester abroad in Spain, getting a job so that I could stay a few months longer that summer. In my early 20’s I did a work abroad program in Costa Rica, traveling around the country as well as some other parts of Latin America on the weekends. In my late 20’s and early 30’s I worked at MoMA in New York City and helped run a private membership group, where we took our members around the world to art biennials and events. Travel has always been a part of who I am. And then I got married and had kids! But that didn’t stop me…
You see, life with kids doesn’t have to hinder your pre-parenting wanderlust – whether it be your own back yard or beyond, there is so much to be seen, and so much to show our children. More and more people are traveling with young kids than ever before. Just look at New York City – what used to be a seedy Times Square has now become a family vacation and destination mecca. From cities to historic towns, from art spaces to cultural sites, from the coast to the mountains to the countryside, there are so many places waiting to be explored by the whole family.
I am a big advocate of local travel as much as further afar in the United States and Abroad. My grandparents were world-class travelers but had a saying: “get to know your own country first”. While I love to travel internationally, I hear their point! Especially living in a place like the United States, where there is so much to explore. My goal for this blog is to be a travel resource for places both near and far, and trips small and big.
