Learning to Ski and Loving It

As a novice skier, preparing for a ski trip to Vermont with my daughter was a bit intimidating. She’s a great sport but, at only 5-years-old, I knew that the process of renting/fitting gear, layering appropriately, and making this experience fun enough so that she’d want to accompany me regularly, was going to be tough. Yet, from the moment we arrived at Okemo Mountain Resort for the Media Weekend, I knew we were in for a treat.

Risks Rather Than Regrets

“The sign, guys! We’re almost there!” I exclaim. The Notch envelops us in trees, boulders, and mountains stretching as far as my eyes can see. We are less than a half hour from my favorite place on earth: Smugglers’ Notch.

Von-Trapped!

People often say they need a “change in scenery.” Usually, they mean a break from the city, or a getaway to the beach; hardly do they ever trade forests for forests. In true rebellion, my family abandoned the trees of Northern New York for the trees of Stowe, Vermont during the summer of 2013. (www.trappfamily.com)

Re-Visiting Our Original Tiny Traveler Award Winners: 1998 to 2015

So, Family Travel Forum set out to discover the best getaways for new parents with infants and toddlers under 3-years of age. After months of research, investigative reporting, site inspections and networking with parents, we came up with 10 great resorts that were certainly above the curve when it came to pleasing babies and parents.

Road Trip USA: Leaf Peeking in New England

The beautiful nature, charming towns and friendly faces make Vermont and New Hampshire a perfect choice for a family road trip.

Vermont’s small size and sparsley-traveled roads make it super for a family driving trip, and October brings leaf peepers to view nature’s annual display of autumn colors. The northern part of Vermont is remote enough to never truly be crowded. Of course, you'll  need more than colorful leaves to keep the kids entertained, so I've suggested stops that provide a variety of more active pursuits.
