About


Welcome to Tips for Family Trips!

I’m Allison, founder and editor of Tips for Family Trips.

Planning a family vacation can be a lot of work, but it’s worth every minute and every penny. Family time is precious. Travel enriches the mind and creates shared memories that families can cherish for years to come. In short, travel makes families stronger, smarter and happier.

This is a blog about your family, not mine. I write about what I wanted to know before we left home, and what we learned while we were there, so your family’s trip can be better, easier and less expensive.

About Me

I live near Salt Lake City, Utah with my husband and two children. We took our first child on a 2,000-mile road trip when she was four weeks old and have been traveling as a family ever since. When my son completed cancer treatment, we celebrated with a California vacation the next day.

My family loves to travel pretty much anywhere, but we face many of the same limitations and challenges as other middle-class families. We stay busy with work, school, extra-curricular activities, volunteerism and extended family, which we enjoy. We travel during school breaks and we travel on a budget.

Tips for Family Trips has diverse team of family travel experts, living all over the United States. No matter what kind of travel you love most – Disney, national parks, beaches, camping, luxury, budget… – we probably have something for you!
