Local: Weekend Escape at Foxwoods

So far we’ve covered a lot of fun family getaway ideas on Bronxmama. But we know how important it is for parents to have some me time as well- whether it’s a date night, girls night out, or just grabbing a close friend and hitting the road. While the Real Housewives might have the money and childcare options to plan week long trips to exotic islands, for many of us
