Jennifer Michaels, the founder of Family Travel Planet, launched this site for parents who wish to teach their kids about unique family travel destinations -- all while keeping them entertained enough to not throw lollipops at the passengers seated in the next row!
Mrs. Michaels is the former Family Travel Expert for VisitFlorida.com and also the mother of two young boys. She and her husband desperately seek to avoid what they’ve dubbed the “Aggravacation.”
This site will give you the dos and don’ts for your family vacation -- before you pack your bags, taking the guesswork out of what to bring and where to go. You can find family travel tips, family vacation ideas, discount travel options, travel packages and cheap travel ideas.
From family-friendly destinations like beaches in Florida to http://www.runningy.com/ in Oregon, our site will lead you to the best family travel destinations around the globe.
FamilyTravelPlanet.com is the premier SUPERMARKET for family travel... a one-stop shop for all your travel needs. Our Journey Store is packed with must-have travel accessories and family travel gear.
We promise to help keep everyone entertained on the road, in the air and on the sea. Whether it's surviving a long road trip or an airport delay, they'll make sure you have plenty of tricks to pull out of your bag on a family vacation.
Family travel can be stressful, but it should be fun! Travel with kids is all about preparation. Jennifer Michaels will make sure you are set with all her Favorite Things. "What to Bring" will give you the family travel gear you need without having to search the internet for days. What mom has time to run from store to store trying to get it all together before a family vacation? Now, you don't have to.
Through her extensive research and her own family travel, both for work and pleasure, Michaels has discovered many hidden gems. First of all, as a mother and secondly, as a reporter, she has traveled the globe and knows firsthand what works -- and what doesn’t. This Emmy-winning family travel reporter has seen it all -- from backpacking through Europe to covering the Academy Award show for People Magazine.
A former Executive Producer for Travel Channel Radio and Producer for “Inside Edition,” Mrs. Michaels wants to share her secrets with you and yours.
In addition to her weekly blogs for www.VisitFlorida.com (which are still found on the site's archives) Mrs. Michaels also has her own blog at FamilyTravelPlanet.blogspot.com, where she shares her thoughts about the travel process as well as shares personal photos of her family's trips. There are special featured videos as well, including her special video on "How to Pack for Your Whole Family In One Hour In One Bag." You don't want to miss it!
