I recently wrote a guest post on How to Get Luxe For Less on Your Summer Family Trip for Zulily.com. If you haven’t yet booked your summer trip, this article includes some great tips on how to find good summer family travel deals, where to look to book family-friendly properties, as well as how to find deals on stylish clothing and gear for the family. One trend that I’m looking forward to exploring this summer is glamping (glamour camping). The Wall Street Journal Magazine recently did a write up on glamping and local Seattle lifestyle magazine 425 Magazine reviewed the beautiful Lakedale Resort. While you may pay more for glamping than traditional camping, we think its worth the splurge and we are looking forward to doing a little family glamping this summer. We’ll provide a closer look at family glamping next month.
