About FamiliesGo!

Eileen Gunn of FamiliesGo!Learning to Travel With Kids: 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? How young is too young for exotic inoculations? Do we have to go to Disney World? How do read or watch TV in a hotel room when your  child is sleeping six inches away from you? And how do you keep a 1 or 3 or 5 or 8-year-old occupied in a way that engages you, too?

Seeking Good Answers: We looked around and found no answers, or not very ones. We talked to a lot of other parents and found they had the same frustration. While parents love great family vacations —the bonding, the photo ops, the memories— they dread the time and effort it takes planning them because it’s so hard to get their most basic questions answered.

Providing Better Answers: This is where FamiliesGo! comes in.  We provide original, high-quality advice and information and we keep the unique needs of parents in mind at all times. We don’t crowdsource because we think this creates more work than help for parents, we don’t write about places our writers haven’t been to because we need to be on the ground to give parents truly useful advice. We create tools and posts based on what parents tell us they need.

Bringing Brands and Users Together: Then we connect our audience with quality consumer and travel brands that fit our users’ unique needs. We work with brands in a variety of ways. We can create custom content for you for our website and social platforms. How? We can also create content for your websites, blogs and publications. We can be your ambassador. We can manage  or co-host your Twitter party or let you sponsor ours. Learn more about branded content, #MOMtravelchat, social engagement and more. Contact us:
