My latest Web Buzz. Absolutely worth checking out. Especially for writers and book lovers.
Love to eat? Love to read? The two don't have to go hand in hand, but in this case the two traits make for delicious city guides.

Join myself, +Travel Mamas & +Katie Dillon  with special guests +Mara Gorman  +Amy Whitley  +Amber Johnson  as we dish travel tips for your upcoming winter vacation tomorrow morning on Twitter 9:30 AM PT. Win a $250 Wyndham Vacation Rentals travel voucher or  $50 and $100 gift card ‪#‎KidsNTrips‬
I like to think of the “Fall back” time change as the call to book a winter vacation. Now that we're newly tied down to school vacation restrictions booking a winter family vacation is more important than ever. What better way to start that booking process than with a travel deal!

Ahhhh! Today is such a great day to shop for travel! The +Johnny Jet newsletter just alerted me to super cheap RT flights to Europe in November and December and sure enough...lets just say my husband would let me take Cora out of school the first week of Dec, or that we wanted to skip Christmas in San Diego (we never do) - RT flights were LESS than $600 each. I found RT flights for one adult and one child LAX - LGW for $1115. INCLUDING taxes and fees. TWO people, not one.  And earlier in the day the occasional deal twitterer @veedeals found a roundtrip flight from the west coast to South Africa for under $1,000. Seriously, if you want to travel before the end of the year - have a look at your favorite travel brands...just like clothing and department stores there are lots of heavy sales. Is Labor Day the new Black Friday/Cyber Monday?

Visit Oceanside has rolled out two new offerings: a volunteer-run Downtown Ambassador program and an updated 2014 Visitor's Guide. Here are the details.

A cool new camping website I wrote up for my latest Web Buzz in the Los Angeles Times Travel section.
If your camping experiences are limited to your Boy Scout or Girl Scout days, these campgrounds will be a comfortable welcome back.
