Top 25 Travel Blogs for Families, 2012
The ideal of family travel - fun and relaxation for all - and the reality - toddler meltdowns and hotel mishaps - don't always coincide. But never fear: Babble's Top 25 Travel Blogs for Families is back, and each of these sites is packed with information on what you can do to make your family's vacation truly enjoyable. We brought back favorites from last year's list and combed through your nominations to bring fresh voices to the conversation. So whether you need to know what to pack while flying to grandma's with a toddler, how to travel the world with your family on a budget, or where to arrange a private cooking lesson in Provence with a Michelin-starred chef, we've got you covered. It's time to stop worrying, start planning, and, most importantly, get moving! (And if we missed a blog you love, nominate it here!) - Paula Sadok

Who: Debbie Dubrow, mom of three, Seattle, WA
Why we love this site: This indispensible resource gives helpful travel tips on a slew of topics: Keeping your toddler busy on airplanes, the best toys to pack, how to deal with children’s jetlag, baby-proofing your hotel room, and more. You can also browse city guides for vacations in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Each guide includes a list of kid-friendly hotels and restaurants and suggest places to visit and shop in that location. We especially like that Dubrow takes her role as global citizen seriously and uses her influence to promote Passports with Purpose, an annual fundraiser created with three other bloggers that raises money for one particular project each year. Previous donations have been used to build schools in Cambodia and Zambia and an entire village in India.
