VeraVise WOW travel is an outdoor family travel blog written by an Appalachian Girl (that’s me 😁) who loves hiking and outdoor family travel. When we aren’t hiking or taking extended family road trips, we love visiting Walt Disney World or exploring small urban down towns.

The name VeraVise is a combination of the words Veracity, which means to be truthful in your words, and Advise. We strive to offer the honest and helpful advice that inspires outdoor family travel adventure.

The WOW travel aspect reflects a desire to share truly amazing destinations. As business owners ourselves, we strive to WOW our clients with our service. As customers, we appreciate businesses who do the same and gladly share those businesses with you.
