Twitter Tuesday: 14 Family Travel Bloggers to Follow

I haven’t been blogging here at Kidventurous for too long. I actually had to go reference the About section and noted that it’s been nearly a year already that Kidventurous has been here on the web. In that time, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and follow some fantastic family travel bloggers who have so much to offer in terms of advice, tips and experiences. Take a look at 14 of my favorite traveling mom bloggers:

@CajunMama: You’ll find Traveling Mamas creator, Shannon Lane, on Twitter throughout the day, tweeting out fun family travel posts. A Louisiana native, you’ll also feel the pride for her home state as she frequently tweets about New Orleans and Lousiana.

@CiaoBambino: When I first started Kidventurous, Ciao Bambino was one of the first family travel blogs I discovered. I love this blog because they post frequently and explore so many different destinations from exotic locales like Marrakech to the happiest place on earth, Walt Disney World.

@CindyRichards: As editor of Traveling Mom, you’ll find lots of sound family travel advice. Even better, join @CindyRichards and @KimOrlando each Monday at 9 p.m. ET for their weekly Twitter chat. Just follow #TMOM on Twitter to join in the fun.

@LuxuryTravelMom: This popular New York mom blogs about luxury family travel, most recently taking a couple of trips out to Park City, Utah with her four kids. She frequently tweets out her travel tips, especially ski tips, but also stop by her blog for her experiences at Atlantis, Paris, DC and more.

@Mommy_Points: Recently recognized as a top reader pick among family travel blogs by Parents magazine, you’ll find a real expert here on using credit card and hotel points, as well as airline miles, to earn free or reduced cost travel.

@MotherOfAllTrip: Mara at The Mother of All Trips is another family travel blogger I started to follow from the get-go. She’s frequently on Twitter and I love her first-hand posts on her adventures around Boston, in particular. I hope to go this summer, so it’s great to get her thoughts on various stops.

@PoshBrood: Just like Kim-Marie at @LuxuryTravelMom, Elizabeth at Posh Brood is all about luxury family travel. She just took her family, including three young kids, out to Colorado for a ski vacation, and is headed to France next month. Look for tweets as she experiences France for families.

@TheVacationGals: If you’re looking for mom-approved reviews of popular vacation spots, family-friendly hotels and travel gear, this is a good travel blog to follow on Twitter. Tweet them a question about any of their reviews and you’re sure to get a prompt and helpful response.

@TravelAndKids: I’m a big fan of how-to and round-up style posts (as you may have noticed), so naturally I’m a fan of this blog, Traveling with Kids. You’ll find lots of informative posts here, like six great carry-on items when traveling with kids and seven holiday travel tips.

@TravelWithKids: This Twitter feed is updated frequently with family travel ideas, like Quebec City and Hershey Park, as well as money-savings strategies and top iPad travel apps. You’ll also find various events calendars and travel deals from time to time.

@Trekaroo: The Talking Trekaroo blog focuses primarily on what to do in the U.S., and I love their feature with ten things for families to do in a different state nearly every week. They also tweet out budget-friendly tips and how-tos to make travel with kids more fun.

@TwoKidsAndAMap: I really like this family travel blog because she not only posts about fun family attractions and destinations (e.g., Destin (FL), Georgia Aquarium, etc), but she also hits on broader topics like travel experiences that will stick with kids and planning a staycation in your own town.

@WorldTravelMom: I recently met @WorldTravelMom (aka Tawanna Smith) at a meet-up for travel bloggers and she’s definitely a rock star. She’s very down-to-earth and touches on popular topics on her blog, like how to break the habit of last-minute packing and the importance of cruise ship drills.

Are there any other family travel bloggers that you read on a regular basis? Let me know in the comments section below. I’d love to get to know them too.
