Looking Back: Should You Take Your Toddler To Oktoberfest?

With Oktoberfest 2017 underway (and ending on October 3), I felt it would be a great idea to re-share a post which I wrote about the festival a few years back.

The majority of people might think of Oktoberfest as a beer-filled festival full of drunks and they would be correct to an extent. However, the festival is also family-friendly with yummy food, fun rides and appealing music playing in the tents.

Take a look at my post, “Should You Take Your Toddler to Oktoberfest“.  Feel free to share your thoughts. Would you bring your toddler to Oktoberfest or would you rather experience an adult only version? Continue reading Looking Back: Should You Take Your Toddler To Oktoberfest?

Flashback: Should You Take Your Toddler to Oktoberfest

With Munich’s Oktoberfest 2016 heading into its final weekend, I thought it would be fitting to re-share a post about our experience at the festival back in 2013.

Most people think of Oktoberfest as a festival for adults. However, the event also has appeal to kids. There are rides, great food to chow down on and when you head into the tents, you’re bound to hear some fun music.

Check out my post “Should You Take Your Toddler to Oktoberfest” and let me know- would you take your toddler to Munich to celebrate or prefer to leave the little ones home? Continue reading Flashback: Should You Take Your Toddler to Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest Attendance Falls, Should You Attend?

Munich Oktoberfest

The biggest beer celebration in the world, Munich’s Oktoberfest recently came to an end. I wasn’t so surprised to read an article from Yahoo related to the event. Yahoo wrote that Oktoberfest attendance falls amid German border controls.

According to the article, 400,000 less visitors came to the event than during the previous year. This accounted for 400,000 less steins of beer being sold. Wow, talk about a big decrease. I wonder how this affects the economy of the city and jobs related to the event?

When Kim, Lucas and I went to Oktoberfest in 2013, we had an amazing time and would love to go again. Continue reading Oktoberfest Attendance Falls, Should You Attend?

Oktoberfest, Route 66 & Pizza: Oklahoma Trip: Day 2

Change of Heart, Heading to Oktoberfest Tomorrow!

A couple of days back I wrote about Day 1 of our recent trip to Oklahoma. The main purpose of our visit was to experience Oktoberfest in America at Tulsa’s take on the event.

This trip was very economical to book with the help of miles, points and cash. If it wasn’t for miles and points we’d probably not take these kind of excursions. Find out about all of my trip booking details here.

Day 2 continued where we left off, heading back to Oktoberfest. We then decided to visit a couple of fun Route 66 attractions before heading to what I read was the state’s best pizza. Continue reading Oktoberfest, Route 66 & Pizza: Oklahoma Trip: Day 2

Oktoberfest, Ice Cream & Racing: Oklahoma Trip: Day 1

Change of Heart, Heading to Oktoberfest Tomorrow!

Last week I wrote about having a change of heart and our decision to head to Oktoberfest.

With the big festival ending in Munich the week before, we decided to head to an American version in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Some of you might wonder- why Oklahoma? My typical answer when asked why I am going to a place is, why not? (With a variety of travel goals and one being to visit every state in America, this would get one more checked off the list!) Continue reading Oktoberfest, Ice Cream & Racing: Oklahoma Trip: Day 1

Change of Heart, Heading to Oktoberfest Tomorrow!

No, not that Oktoberfest in Munich- it ended a little over a week back.

Over the past month or so I’ve written some posts about our time at Oktoberfest. This made me really feel Oktoberfest-sick (kinda like homesick but for the festival).

With Kim and I having some time off from work I started to look into various options. We were only considering domestic trips. I also came up with two criterion for picking a place. Continue reading Change of Heart, Heading to Oktoberfest Tomorrow!

Jumping At Munich’s Oktoberfest

Last year I finally got to experience Oktoberfest, an event that I’ve been wanting to attend for quite some time. (Check out my trip planning post here.)

We had an amazing time, spending around 4 days visiting and drinking in the massive beer tents. Our visit to Oktoberfest was a very interesting one, especially since we experienced it with Lucas (he was around 1.5 at the time).  Continue reading Jumping At Munich’s Oktoberfest

Top 10 Oktoberfest’s Around the World

With Munich’s Oktoberfest ending recently, I was curious to find out about other places around the world that would be worth visiting in the future to see their take on the festival.

I had been actually reading into the best places to go for Oktoberfest around the U.S. initially. Kim and I were hoping to visit an American Oktoberfest this year. However, between the festival dates and not finding decent pricing (with either miles or cash) to get us to one of the cities, it just wasn’t meant to be.
