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: Suzanne Rowan Kelleher, mom of three, Saratoga Springs, NY
Why we love this site: Kelleher takes a journalistic approach to this blog, writing honest, no-nonsense advice that makes We Just Got Back a parent favorite. Its content has appeared in various news outlets, such as ABC, MSNBC, and Frommers, and it’s easy to see why. The site is organized by deals, tip sheets, insider guides, and free printable packing lists and travel games. Kelleher provides strategies for what to do in case you and your children get separated (put your hotel’s business card in your kids’ pockets, buy your children metal ID bracelets with their names and your cell numbers), how to speed through security lines (no belts, everyone in slip-on shoes), and offers trip ideas for everything from adventure vacations to cultural and educational travel.
