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: Elizabeth Thorp, mom of three, Washington, D.C.
Why we love this site: A planning site for busy moms, Posh Brood is run by Elizabeth Thorp and her team of bloggers, who rate hotels based on their amenities and services for children. It’s not enough for a property to have a beautiful space and excellent service; they must also cater to the littlest members of the family to earn Posh Brood’s seal of approval. The site is divided into several vacation categories – Beach, Eco, New York City, High Roller and Pets are a few – and focuses on higher-end chains such as The Regency and The Four Seasons, along with standalone classics, like West Virginia’s Greenbrier. Recent posts include a celebrity guest hotel review from actress Amy Brenneman.
