While the website goal is to gear the information to an empty nesters point of view, we do have a family travel section and are interested in hearing your ideas on family travel.
Tip: My current focus is in off the beaten path travel articles for all US States and Canada. I’m currently specifically interested in California, Utah, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Maine, Alabama, Italy and Ireland and cruising.

Keep in mind that the quality and originality of the content is imperative. Your article must be unpublished, creative and informative. Articles that don’t make sense or fit our genre, written only for SEO or branding purposes will not be accepted under any circumstances.
