Welcome to KidTripster!  Come get to know us.


Launched in 2016, KidTripster is an online magazine, providing expert information and inspiration to families traveling with children anywhere in the world.  

Simply put, KidTripster is written by parents for parents.  

That makes us different than your mega travel sites and magazines.  We only focus on family-centered travel, and we do it better than anyone else.

We've designed our website so that you can access information about travel destinations in three ways:  1) You can search by location.  Our writers and their families have explored every continent in the world.  Ok, maybe not Antarctica, but believe it or not, we're working on that one!  If you're looking for destinations in the USA, use our handy regional maps.  2) You can search by vacation type, including City, Beach, Escapes (not city or beach), Outdoors, Ski, Cruise, Theme Parks, Water Parks, and Road Trips.  3)  You can search by keyword in the upper right hand corner.  Our goal is to help you plan a meaningful and memorable family vacation anywhere.

We also have a number of special features.  If you're traveling to a city, look for our 10/10/10s.  We've curated the top 10 family-friendly Plays (activities), Stays, and Eats for major cities around the world, in most cases, written by parent-journalists who actually live there.  We also give kids a voice through our KidTripster Teen program.  Here, you as a parent can get honest insight from teens who've "been there, done that," before you plan a vacation.  And don't forget to check out our Travel Tips and Travel News sections to help you save time, money, and your sanity!

Finally, please take a moment to connect with KidTripster via our newsletter.  Simply provide us with your email address on the right side of our website.  Don't worry, we won't spam you.  You don't have time for that and neither do we!  Also find us on social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest (we think that Pinterest is a particularly good tool for planning a family vacation).  That way, you'll be able to keep up with all of our new content and photos. 

Thank you for supporting KidTripster.  We look forward to traveling the world with you!
