City-based travel with kids is great fun with the right information about where-to-stay and what-to-do

A team of travel bloggers has banded together to launch family-friendly website, Little City Trips. While there is an abundance of family travel blogs online, the team-of-three discovered there is no ‘go-to’ website for parents attempting to plan a city trip with children in tow.

“We all write content for our own blogs based on our personal experiences of the places we have travelled to,” says Marianne Rogerson, one of the founding editors of Little City Trips. “Sometimes we’ll cover hotels or some of the things we have done. But we realized there was no one website where you could find all the information you need for a family city trip all in one place.”

The team also realized that reading so many personal blog posts can be overwhelming for parents who are short of time. The website aims to provide at-a-glance information for each city: where to stay, what to do and what to pack, in addition to useful information such as getting around and the best time to visit.

The Little City Trips team is keen to emphasise to parents that city trips with kids can be fun. “Many parents feel overwhelmed at the thought of a city break with kids,” continues Rogerson. “But cities can be loads of fun as a family. You just need to be a bit organized and plan ahead.”

Little City Trips has launched with 18 of the most popular cities across the world and the team plans to add to this over the coming months. The team behind Little City Trips includes Keri Hedrick from Our GlobetrottersMarta Correale from Learning Escapes and Marianne Rogerson from Mum on the Move.
