If you haven’t yet stopped by or subscribed to Family Travel 411–my site for independent travelers with kids of all ages–I think you’ll find there are some compelling reasons to do so. Especially if you like to travel. With kids. And are making any plans to do so any time now through their college years. 😉
I created Family Travel 411 for parents planning travel with tots through teens, and my team of contributors and I have been busy creating 4-1-1 destination guides for some of the best and most exciting places you might like to take your kids in North America and around the world. Here are four reasons why I think you should be sure to bookmark–and subscribe to–our sister site.
1. Turn-key destination guides to make planning your family’s next trip a breeze.
Whether you’re craving a National Park escape to Yosemite or Zion; a European jaunt to London, Cordoba, or Coastal Slovenia; or perhaps something even more exotic… Langkawi, Chiang Mai, the Sacred Valley of Peru, or Kyoto perhaps? You can browse our destinations guides easily by simply using the “Destinations” tab on the main menu at the top of each page.
2. Entertaining–and award-winning–tales of family travel.
And in addition to tales of family travel… the occasional “momcation” for those who might really need one. Should you take your kids to a museum dedicated to Ernest Hemingway–or drag them into a Florida swamp riddled with alligators and pythons? Bookmark these for your the next time you have a lengthy wait at the airport–or find yourself in need of an armchair adventure. Check out:
