“Top value for hard-earned vacation dollars is among the criteria for Family Travel Forum’s Top 10 Getaways awards,” says publisher John Manton, “so we are particularly pleased to honor a family camp in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of Minnesota and a cottage colony in France’s Loire Valley where a family of four can vacation for less than $90 per day.”
“And for the first time,” he adds, “parents able to splurge on a round-the-world cruise or a deluxe Caribbean spa will also find superior child-centered programs for their infants and toddlers.”
The independent, award-winning Family Travel Forum has been recognized with the National Parenting Seal of Approval and ‘Best of the Web’ awards from Forbes and Conde Nast Traveler magazines, as well as by CNN, ABC, The Travel Channel, American Baby, Child, Diversions, Family Life, Ladies Home Journal, Redbook, Frequent Flyer, Time, Travel Weekly, Travel Age, USA Today, Yahoo!
