We sure have done our share of traveling with a kid in tow – I like to think that I am getting close to being a self-proclaimed expert in packing for a family trek.

I am going to use this post as a running collection of all of the travel reviews that I have shared.  We tend to aim for attractions/destinations that are very kid friendly – and whenever possible, I share tips for saving money while you’re out and about.
