About

Welcome to the new FamilyTravel.com.

After more than fifteen years of providing family travel resources, we are excited about our updated editorial focus and travel-friendly design. Whether you’re an armchair traveler, a city seeker, a National Park explorer or a global adventurer, we want to be your wellspring of Family Travel information and inspiration.

Note that our definition of “family” has expanded.  The game has changed. Combine the geographic spread with the multi-layered demands of the modern family and what do you get?  Folks who are time-starved and hungry for connection. 

Often the only time we see our extended tribe is when we gather at a beach house, a ski resort or a high mountain camp ground to celebrate a special family event.  So we plan to provide plenty of creative suggestions for gathering the clan in ways that will be as much fun for Aunt Gloria as Baby Ben (and for his parents). 

In between those multigenerational meet-ups, we hope you plan time away with your children, your siblings, and those friends who are often more like family than…well, you know, those truly treasured friends!  

Expect thoughtful travel writing and inspired photography from our intrepid crew of professionals. Browse our pages for tips and ideas for great weekend getaways, thrilling adventure trips, traditional summer vacations and off-the-beaten path exploration. 

You’ll also find gear and book reviews, luxury and budget booking options, great travel deals and opportunities for trading travel secrets.

We hope you enjoy the new FamilyTravel.com and will spread the news to your friends and family. We invite you to return time and again to share your stories and to enjoy our window onto an amazing world.  

 

Go far. Grow close.
