Traveling with kids is messy, aggravating, frustrating and wonderful, just like raising kids. Taking the Kids is your best family travel resource for how to get the most fun-and memories-out of your family vacations as well as the most bang for your travel buck. Eileen Ogintz has over 20 years of experience as a journalist, writer and blogger tracking travel trends. She is also a mom who has traveled with her three kids and others in the family from Orlando to Yosemite, the Caribbean to Alaska, to Europe and beyond. Taking the Kids’ main purpose is to help you show your kids the world, have a good time in the process and build memories that last a lifetime.
Welcome to our Taking the Kids Cruise Guide for 2013, researched and updated by our intrepid intern Becca Tash. More kids than ever are cruising with their parents in the Caribbean, Europe, Alaska or far flung destinations like the Galapagos Islands and even the Arctic.
The first-ever TMS Family Travel summit brought together national travel media with top marketers to brainstorm how we could work together to improve and de-stress the family travel experience.
We are delighted to announce the new TakingTheKids app that provides fun and education for families touring New York City on several walking tours. Try it out on the Brooklyn Bridge, in Times Square or in Central Park on your next visit to the Big Apple.
