While we begin to gear up for the summer travel season, I have some very exciting news to share with you! I am now officially an Alamo Chief Travel Mom! One of my favorite things about being a blogger and using social media is that I have the opportunity to share my love of travel with you guys – and hopefully inspire you to do some traveling of your own! As an Alamo Chief Travel Mom, I will be joining a few other incredibly awesome, travel-savvy bloggers over the next few months to help inspire you to get out and see the world with your kids!
Whether it’s a family road trip to visit the grandparents and splash in the river in North Carolina…
Or a European cruise or trip to Europe to explore the sights of Rome…
I hope that we are able to inspire you to get up, pack your bags, and set off on your own adventure with the family this summer!
The Alamo Chief Travel Moms are made up of myself, Liz Mays from A Nut In A Nutshell, Crissy Page from Dear Crissy, Angela Sellari from About a Mom and Stacie Connerty from The Divine Miss Mommy. We all come from families of different sizes, kids of different ages and different interests when it comes to travel, so you are in for a real variety of information over the next few months!
We will be covering topics such as preparing for a fun journey (because getting there is half the fun!), personalizing your vacation, capturing the moment and how to have the best summer ever!
Keep an eye out for next month’s first Alamo Chief Travel Moms story, where we will be talking about preparing for a fun journey. We will be focusing on how you can make the journey TO your vacation destination fun too!

Savvy parents are increasingly including their kids in family vacation planning. In fact, 63 percent of parents said their children influenced their choice of vacation destination, according to the 2014 Portrait of the American Travelers survey. With this in mind, Alamo Rent A Car partnered with Eileen Ogintz, nationally syndicated family travel columnist and creator of TakingTheKids.com, to create an original infographic from the kids’ point of view.
This Alamo infographic features key stats and 10 original ideas from kids to help parents everywhere increase the fun while planning, packing, participating in activities and making memories for their family vacations.
No matter where you take the kids or how much you spend on your family vacation, what’s important is enjoying your time together and making memories for a lifetime!
