Blogs We Love!

Spring is in the air, and if you're like me, the warmer weather has you daydreaming about getting away.  Whether you're researching possible vacation spots that are great for tots, looking for clever family travel tips, or trying to find that unbeatable travel deal, there are a few sites (besides this one, of course!) you won't want to miss!  Check out some of our favorites below:

Destination Sites:
Family Travel Files - domestic and international family travel ideas and tips!
Have Baby Will Travel - the premier site for all things travelling-with-baby!
Best Kid Friendly Travel - destination ideas and recommended itineraries!

Travel Tips:
Pint Size Pilot - everything from helpful tips to product recommendations!
Delicious Baby - the ultimate resource: tips, recommendations, it's all here!
Travelling With Kids - great long-distance flying guide and tips!

Travel Deals for Families:

Priceline - destinations, lodging, and transportation at discount prices!

Dreaming about and planning the trip can be as much fun as the actual excursion itself!  Don't forget to get the kids involved (if they are old enough); let them help you settle on a great destination, share photos, stories, books and other media that will get them excited for the trip, and encourage them to get involved with packing and selecting attractions and activities that will be fun for the whole family.  Remember, preparing for the journey is half the adventure!

Safe and happy travels!
