Some news! We just launched a new partnership with LocalGetaways.com. We’re writing tips and advice for their Kid-Friendly Great Getaways section. The first edition covers the California wine country vacations with kids. Napa and Sonoma are right outside of Dana’s front door and she’s provided an array of fantastic suggestions of things to do with kids other than dragging them to wineries.
Local Getaways is a great resource to bookmark for boutique hotel stays in California. The publisher, Matthew R. Poole, is the author of three Frommer’s Travel Guides to San Francisco, Los Angeles, and California. Matthew and his team have put together a great array of small hotels that are perfect for short holidays. Not all are kid-friendly (you can use Ciao Bambino to cross reference hotels that we like with kids), but nonetheless, they always showcase great deals at properties that are perfect for parent-only excursions too.
