I’m good at telling families why they should visit a destination:
“You have a wonderful way of distilling the essence of each site you visit in a way that sets each apart and highlights its best features. It’s a pleasure to work with you.”– Dutchess County Tourism, NYS
And I influence vacation purchasing decisions:
“We changed our Mayan ruins tour after reading your Riviera Maya post. Coba was fun!”— NYC Dad of 2
Introducing FamiliesGo! & Eileen Gunn
Learning to Travel With Kids: The Questions:
Before we became parents, Rich and I traveled far and wide.
Once Tiny Traveler came along we had a lot of questions: Could you take a child to Cambodia? or Peru? Do we have to go to Disney World? How do we read or watch TV in a hotel room when our child is sleeping six inches away from us? And how do you keep a 1, 3, 5, 8, 12 or 15-year-old entertained in a way that engages you, too?
Providing Better Answers:
I looked around and found no good answers. I talked to a lot of other parents and found they had the same same questions and no answers.
Parents love great family vacations, but we dread the time and effort it takes planning a family vacation. Getting our most basic questions answered can be hard. And we don’t want to get it wrong.
At FamiliesGo!, I believe families can travel almost anywhere with kids of almost any age, as long as they have good information and the right expectations (and extra snacks). My job is to provide parents with the inspiration they want and the information they need to head off into the world with kids in tow.
I provide accurate and digestible itineraries, reviews and planning tools. And I always keep the unique needs of parents in mind. Some of my most popular posts spring from the questions parents ask me.
What Makes Eileen & FamiliesGo! Unique?
I’m curious and as a trained journalist I’m known for looking at the places I visit from different points of view and for asking insightful questions.
I always seek out the activities, sights and restaurants that are overlooked as family friendly, but that families can absolutely enjoy.
I write engaging, conversational and authoritative content and I capture the key details and the flavors of the destinations I visit.
In addition to influencing travel decisions with my website content, I’m known as the family travel expert among family, friends, my socia media circle and my Brooklyn community. I provide long-term positive word of mouth for places I partner with and provide frequent recommendations in person and over social media.
