Top 25 Family Travel Blogs to Follow for 2014

Family walking on cliffside path holding hands and smiling

Traveling with family and especially young children can be a wonderful, frustrating, memorable, miserable, wacky and wild experience. All of the above, probably on just one trip. Navigating these waters can be tricky for first time family travelers or even most veterans. It is not easy finding activities that suit a 13-year-old who thinks she is too cool and a 4-year-old who thinks Pixie Sticks are the only acceptable meal. As a parent you need advice to create the ultimate experience for both yourself and your young children so we highly recommend the below-listed bloggers as a must-follow this year to help you do just that.

Bohemian Travelers

Come visit our family of 5 as we weave in and out of a family travel lifestyle. - Mary, Travel Bohemian @TravelBohemian

Boston Mamas

Boston Mamas was one of the first hyperlocal blogs in the country; I created it because I saw an editorial hole that needed filling! In the last 8 years I've evolved the site to give local and visiting families lots of ideas for things to do (in particular, via the recurring Weekly Blueprint and Weekend Roundup features), as well as evergreen resource-driven lifestyle editorial (e.g., food, fitness, work issues) and personal parenting stories. I know I'm biased, but I think the result is a really wonderful and varied mix of content that seeks to simplify life for parents and also foster connections. - Christine Koh, Boston Mamas @BostonMamas

yTravel Blog

From dreams to reality, we want to help you travel more and create better memories. We know there's a yearning inside of you to travel and you just can't settle until you find a way to make it happen. We know that feeling. It's been the driver of our lives since 97. We've been living a life of travel for that long and we want to help you do the same. This blog is for the dreamer fools- the ones who don't believe their bum should be making imprints in sofas and go after the dream life. It's for those who want a little bit more. It doesn't have to be the year-long round the world trip, where you scrimp on every dime and sleep in dog kennels and eat baked beans. It's just about you making more time for what elevates your happiness and sense of inner peace. That little bit more of you time, of love time, of chill out time, of adventure time, of deeper connections, and better memories. It's for those who just want to tell more enriching stories and have something to laugh about in the years to come. It's about embracing the now before it's too late. You get to define how that looks, we're here to help push you into it. - yTravel Blog @ytravelblog

  1. Hi. I am a French mother of three kids with whom I love to travel. As I consider classical guides to be often ill-adapted to families, I decided to launch my own! On http://travel-with-my-kids.com you will find plenty of information and many stories stemming from families, which will help you organize trips to various destinations around the world. A real helping hand for overwhelmed parents! Hope you'll enjoy the french touch ;)
