Want a cheaper rate on the hotel you've already booked? Check out DreamCheaper.
No need to second-guess the price you paid for your hotel. There's a new website to take care of that for you.

With +Katie Dillon +Colleen Lanin 
Cooper is our 10-month-old German Shorthair Pointer. We rescued him from the Hellen Woodward Animal Center when he was eight weeks old. He's my first dog. And he's two handfuls. When we planned to get our puppy (after Cora started Kindergarten) we sought out a puppy not just because they're ...

Join us for tomorrow's #KidsNTrips  Twitter Party!  Residence Inn by Marriott Mom of the Year Tamera Mowry-Housley will be tweeting some of her favorite Mom Hacks when it comes to traveling with her son. We will also be giving away a $200 Residence Inn gift card to one lucky winner, and two winners will each receive a summer fun gift bag, filled with travel goodies. 9:30 a.m. PT/12:30 p.m. ET Thursday, May 14, 2015  +Katie Dillon +Colleen Lanin 
No matter how many times we've packed the family suitcases, stuffed our purses with kid snacks, and agreed to take just one more stuffed animal—there's always another smart traveling mom out there who's discovered a family tip that we haven't heard of. Residence Inn by Marriott found her!

Do you have summer vacation plans yet? Join +Katie Dillon +Colleen Lanin +Barb Webb +Keryn Means and myself tomorrow (4/16 at 9:30 a.m. PT/12:30 p.m. ET) as we dish all our best travel tips for making a family vacation the best it can be! Our sponsor, American Express, will be giving away $400 in gift cards too.
I love this time of year! Summer is right around the corner. The kids will soon be out of school and the excitement of going to the local pool with the neighborhood kids, corner lemonade stands, and the thing we've all been waiting for—family vacation—is right around the corner.

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!
