More About Us

Our Purpose:

Learning to Travel With Kids:

Eileen gunn of familiesgo!

Before we became parents, Rich and I traveled far and wide. Once Tiny Traveler came along we had a lot of questions about where and how to travel with a child. We looked around and found no answers, or not very appealing ones.

What Parents Want: We talked to a lot of other parents and found they had the same frustrations we did. While parents love great family vacations —the bonding, the memories, the chance to introduce their kids to new places and experiences — they don’t like the large amount time and effort it takes planning them. It’s so hard to get the most basic questions answered and if you make bad decisions there is the guilt that you ruined your family vacation.

Providing Better Answers:

  • We provide original, high-quality advice and information.
  • We keep the unique needs of parents and kids in mind with all of our editorial and custom content.
  • We don’t crowdsource content.
  • We don’t write about places our writers haven’t been to.
  • We create tools and posts based on what parents tell us they need.

Bringing Brands and Users Together: 

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.
