Family Travel Forum has provided trusted vacation planning resources for traveling the world with kids since 1996. Over the years, our staff and contributors who Have Kids, Still Travel! — as well as their children, our interns, professional writers and our community — have maintained a rich and up to date library on the latest destinations, products and trends.
The company’s travel guidebooks and family of websites include:
- TheFamilyVacationist Blog
- TheFamilyVacationist e-newsletter
- America’s Most Popular Family Vacations (e-book, 2016)
- Complete Idiots Guide to the Best Family Destinations (Penguin, 2011)
- Amazing Places to Take Your Kids: Hundreds of North American Adventures (PPI, 2006)
We strive to provide accurate and honest destination research, including firsthand reviews of tropical and ski resorts, reunion destinations, attractions, holiday weekends, family festivals, cruises and all kinds of vacation ideas. FTF also offers content licensing to other media, and family travel consulting services to the travel industry.
Founded by business professionals with first class travel industry credentials and global family travel experience, the independent, family-supported FTF community shares honest information, informed advice and practical tips; all designed to make family trips a rewarding, healthy, better value, hassle-free — and as our kids would say, funner — experience for everyone.
