I’m very excited to kick off the week with a new look for Hip Travel Mama! HipTravelMama.com is for families who love luxury travel that fits their style and budget. Here I will share our travel experiences and thoughtful tips, hip destinations and trip ideas to help you plan your next luxury family vacation. Being “Hip” is more than staying at high-end hotels. It is an attitude about traveling with kids. It’s about being in the know and making smart choices about your family trip planning and maximizing value and experience every step of the way.
Travel planning starts in our community and with people in which we have shared experiences, interests, family style and budget. Often, my best vacation ideas or advice comes from a neighbor, a colleague, a mom at school, or a parent on the playground. There are also many outstanding resources for family travel online today and just like families, many varying styles of family travel and types of trips. My friends will contest that I am most passionate about finding and sharing unique high-end properties in fun destinations that are family-friendly and affordable, and that’s what you can expect to find here. It’s true that some five-star hotels and destinations are just not suited for family travel. However, there is a growing list of luxury hotels, destinations and resorts that are catering to families and moms who desire the same pampering and luxury travel experience they had before kids.
Hip Travel Mama will focus on four areas of luxury family travel:
- Hip tips: tips for luxury travel with kids
- Fun trips: ideas for fun trips and hip destinations
- Food and wine: regionally inspired family-friendly recipes, dining and wine picks for parents
- Luxe style: stylish and functional kid and travel products
What is most important to you in planning a luxury family trip? Experience? Amenities? Value? Let me know in the comments, or email me and tell me what destinations or advice you’d love to see here and how I can inspire you in your luxury family travel planning.
