After a few weeks of staying up way past my bedtime, poring over four+ years worth of blog posts, and consuming more chocolate than I care to admit…I am excited to officially welcome you to the new TravelMamas.com!

Welcome to the New TravelMamas.com!

I hope you’ll take a moment to tour our new home. In addition to an updated look, I think you’ll find our redesigned site to be easier to navigate to find the information you want on travel with children, giveaways, vacation destinations, ideas for grown-up getaways, travel tips, and reviews of cruises, hotels, restaurants, theme parks, and travel gear.

Since Travel Mamas first launched in 2009, our printable packing lists have been immensely popular. I know many of you return to the site before each family trip to print out a packing list to make sure you don’t forget to bring along anything important. In addition to packing lists for children, an airplane carry-on kit for babies and toddlers, and our handy travel with children checklist—we have added two more lists just for grown-ups. Check out our packing list for business trips and our romantic getaways packing list for your next trip WITHOUT kids.

We will be working out a few kinks over the next couple of weeks but I just couldn’t hold in this exciting news any longer. Swing on by—we look forward to continuing our journey with you!
