Two Kids and a Map | Jen Close
Who: Jen Close, mom of two, Florida
Why we love this site: With a focus on Florida and the mid-Atlantic states, this blog is full of mom-tested suggestions on everything from hotels to hiking the Appalachian Trail. Looking for the best activities to keep kids busy on a plane? Close provides lists of toys and games that engage all ages (Travel Kiddy kits and Doodle 123 are musts) and will help the time fly. And her mix of high-low adventures – from America’s water parks to Zermatt, Switzerland – make this an entertaining and helpful resource. Plus, you’ll get the real scoop on national parks and Harry Potter World at Universal Studios, all huge hits with her kids.
