Welcome to Tips for Family Trips!
I’m Allison, founder and editor of Tips for Family Trips.
I founded Tips for Family Trips five years ago with the belief that travel is good for families because it makes them stronger, smarter and happier. My goal is to give you the information you need to make the best travel decisions for your family. I also hope to save you money (click the link to find out how), so that you can travel more often!
I live near Salt Lake City, Utah with my husband and two children. We took our oldest 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 treatment for cancer, we celebrated with a California vacation the next day.
We love travel, but have the same time and money problems as most middle-class families. I’m happy to go just about anywhere, but I especially love road trips, national parks, theme parks and cruises. We are familiar with both the well-known and out-of-the-way attractions throughout our home state of Utah.
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!
