Welcome to Hoff To See The World!

February 1, 2021
The Hoffmann's enjoy Cannon Beach, again!  Cannon Beach is the top thing to do on the Oregon Coast.  Hoff to See the World.

We are so happy you are here! There are so many places on the internet you could be right now, and you chose to spend a moment with us. Thank you!

We are the Hoffmann’s, a family of six from Seattle, Washington.

Our conundrum is this: As individuals, Ryan and Monica love to travel, but as parents, we have two boys with autism and two more kids with ADHD. True story. We also have careers, own a home, and our parents aren’t getting any younger.

These aren’t the easiest years to wander planet earth, but this is exactly what we feel inspired to do!

So why create the Hoff to See the World website?

We started this website for three primary reasons:

1. It will make an amazing scrapbook for our family.

2. Our research, planning, and photos seem to inspire those around us.

3. We want to share what we’ve learned about traveling with special needs children. Maybe your children aren’t special needs, still it’s hard to take them in public. We empathize.

Honestly, we have surprised ourselves by creating this website. If you would like to know more about why and how we did it, you can read about how Hoff to See the World became a blog.

    I first found your articles about Charleston and found them so helpful in planning our trip next May. I couldn’t believe you would be so generous and spend so much time helping others, especially with a family requiring so much special attention. And then I read that we belong to the same church – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It all makes sense and made me very happy and tearful. Thank you, thank you, for your service! Now I can’t wait to read all your tips about other vacation possibilities.

      This makes me so happy, Cheryl. Thank you for the affirmation. You are correct that writing these articles takes a good deal of time — the family is supportive of it, mostly, as long as the testimony of family and Christ is clear. We absolutely loved Charleston and we hope you feel the same way. Our ward in Ladsen, SC was one of all-time favorites. Thanks again, Cheryl. God bless you! Let us know if you have any questions.
