Whether you’re looking for a quick weekend getaway, want to visit that bucket list destination, or plan to venture overseas, at TravelingMom and TravelingDad, we’ve been there and packed that. Our first-hand experience will give you the insights, tips and advice you need to book The. Best. Family. Vacation. Ever.
We’ve been there.
We’ll tell you what works for families and what doesn’t. From the most popular tourist destinations to off-the-beaten-path explorations, you’ll get practical, expert advice to help plan an adventure that is just right for your family. Our traveling moms and dad writers, with kids old and young, dive deep into each destination to provide you with practical advice and recommendations for where to say, what to do, how to get around, and more.
We are about bringing families together.
Family vacations are good for the family, good for the soul and good for the planet. They take us away from day-to-day distractions so we can tune in to each other. No matter how perfect or imperfect your family vacation, the memories will last a lifetime. We know how hard it can be to take that vacation. From schlepping baby gear to convincing teenagers, there are a million reasons not to go. Our mission is to make it as easy as possible.
We are like you.
Families come in every shape and size. Families with toddlers. With teens. With Grands. Multigen. Skip Gen. Sandwich Gen. And any other Gen you can conjure. No matter which Gen describes your family, we’ve got a writer who travels the way you do. We understand the challenges of finding a sitter for Fido. Or Grandpa. Or the house. Of finding a destination that will please everyone from your college age son to your hard-to-please Cousin Cathy. No, planning the perfect family vacation isn’t easy. But we’ve got advice and information that caters to a wide variety of interests and activities.
We are about inspiration.
Travel has the power to open hearts and minds. It inspires a love of nature and diversity of thought and culture. In short, it is a recipe for a brighter and more sustainable future. But where should you go? What should you pack? How do you get the most out of your time together? We’ve been there. We know which products will make the trip easier and which hotels have the services you need. We know what works for families and what doesn’t. And we know that the benefits of a family vacation are always worth the effort it takes to get there!
We are local, regional, national and international.
Our “we’ve been there” approach to family vacation planning and inspiration gives you a parent’s perspective on where to go and what to do. We feature cities, states, national parks and landmarks in the U.S. We know the best beaches, resorts, water and theme parks. We love International destinations, too, from the Caribbean, to Canada, Europe, and beyond.
We are trusted.
TravelingMom leaders are sought-after industry experts. From Good Morning America to CBS Radio to the Today Show, we are the family vacation experts. Major brands such as Disney, Marriott and General Motors partner with us. We visit the destinations and use the products. We seek out family-friendly. We prioritize options. We keep safety top of mind. When our respected travel writers recommend a destination or a product, you can trust that recommendation comes from personal experience. We want you to visit that place or buy that product because we love it and believe you will too.
We are more than destination info.
