4 Tips To Help You Take Your Family On The Perfect Weekend Getaway | #Travel


weekend getaway

We are a family that loves to travel. Lucky for us, my husband has Mondays off, so when we can take the girls out of school, we do. We love going on three day adventures. From Canada, to Pennsylvania, to Massachusetts, we try love adventure. If it is within driving distance, we will plan a trip there. Now I want to share some tips I have learned to help you become a master at weekend getaways too!

Diono Radian RXT

Where ever you are going, I know you want to keep your kids safe on the journey. All parents do. Diono is a brand that you can trust. I should know, I have been using them for years. My oldest daughter is in one of their boosters, and my youngest just got a new Diono Radian RXT. My girls never complain about being uncomfortable, and are always strapped in tight. As a mom, I am overly impressed by Diono, and I think you will be too!

Travel Tray

Travel Trays are literally the coolest thing for traveling kids that I have seen in a while! Simply put them in the cup holder and you are done with set up. My girls love having these because they can use them to play or eat during long trips. My husband and I love them because they keep the food and toys on the tray, and not strewn about the car. Talk about an easy clean-up.


myCharge Portable Charger

When I am traveling with my family or for a press event, I am always using my phone. Taking photos and video, recording audio, and of course staying current on social media. Because of this my phone battery tends to drain pretty quickly. Luckily, there are such things as portable chargers out there and I want to tell you about one of my favorites, myCharge hubmini. The reason I love this one so much is because it has two (yes two!!) charges. It also comes pre-charged so you can pack it in your bag the day you pick it up. The built in cables allow you to charge your iPhone and/or micro-USB devices. Yes please! So stay charged while on the go with myCharge!


Book With TripAdvisor

If you are planning a trip to, well, just about anywhere, I highly recommend checking out TripAdvisor! You can book from start to finish in just a few minutes. It is the world’s largest provider of tours, activities and attractions, with more than 56,000 bookable experiences in 2,500 destinations worldwide. They even have 24/7 customer service and a low price guarantee. You really can’t beat that, can you? I love that I can sit down and plan my entire vacation with a couple clicks of a button – and check out and pay all at once. Plan your next vacation with TripAdvisor and see how easy it is for yourself!
