January 25 #TMOM Twitter Party – Must-See Destinations in 2016!

As the EastCoast TMOM, I’m all about the right side. I’ve been from Maine down to Florida and everywhere in between, and I know that I love being on the Atlantic Ocean. Yes, this is my favorite real estate when it comes to travel.

But I have to admit that when I read Traveling Grandmom Diana Rowe’s series on the Best Places to Take Your Kids in 2016, my mind started heading in a different direction – and so did my travel plans. When I’m considering places to go this year, I am seriously contemplating heading west. As I told the writer herself, I’ve always wanted to see orcas in the wild. Then Diana told me about the wildlife in the national parks of Washington and Colorado, and I was hooked.

Sure, we all have our favorite β€œgo to” places when it comes to spending our vacation time. For me, it’s summer at the Jersey shore, long weekends in New England or the Mid-Atlantic, and of course at least a week at Disney. But what if we stretched our boundaries and decided to visit somewhere new in 2016? Think of all the adventures we’ve been missing while vacationing in our comfort zones!

Open to a new destination, but not sure where to go? Well, once again, it’s TMOM to the rescue! Check out the round-up series, then join us at the #TMOM Twitter party on January 25, when we’re sharing our picks of the must-see destinations for families in 2016. Be it around the corner or around the world, we’ve been there….and we love to talk about our travels and hear all about yours. So join us for another fun hour of travel talk on January 25!

WHEN: January 25, 9-10 p.m. ET (8-9 p.m. CT; 7-8 p.m. MT; 6-7 p.m. PT)
