I’ll admit I’m a self-proclaimed obsessive planner.
I am pretty much the least go with the flow person you’ll ever meet. I try – kind of. But if I’m going on a vacation, I want to get the most bang for my buck possible. As a result, our family vacations are never boring.

Luckily my husband is a planner too and between the two of us we often cover hours worth of research on our destinations long before we ever pack our bags. The best trips we’ve been on have been the experiences we’ve taken in on the recommendations of others. When we went to New York, a friend told me about nytix.com and saved us up to 50% on tours, museums and Broadway shows! It’s one of those things I never would have known about (or trusted) on my own. When we went to Hawaii, friends recommended the best places to go snorkeling and gave us the heads up that renting a car in Honolulu is a huge waste of money.
These little vacation tidbits are invaluable. When you are visiting a new place for the first time, you’re kind of going in blind. It’s even harder when you’re bringing kids! How do you know if the activities will truly be family friendly? Even with the best research available, it’s just not the same as having someone who is familiar with the place and knows the best of what it has to offer versus what to save your time and money on.

Mom Aboard Makes Takes the Stress Out of Family Vacations
Mom Aboard finds local curators from over 50 locations around the globe to create a personalized itinerary just for you based on your family’s needs, preferences, interests, and budget. Who knows better than a local to give you the ins and outs? And because each ambassador is also a mom, it gives me such peace of mind knowing I’m in good hands.
Once you choose a destination, you are able to enter in all of the important information you want your mom ambassador to know about you and your family:
Do you prefer to pack in as many activities as you possibly can each day? Or take your time and explore each one in depth? Are you flying or driving? Do you prefer to stay in a place with a pool? Do you need a recommendation for a local babysitter service?
Simply fill out the intake form with your contact information, purpose of your trip, your trip needs, interest, and budget, and anything else you want the mom ambassador to know about you. Make sure to fill in that last box with as much information as possible about what you’re looking for! The more information your mom ambassador has about you the more she is able to cater specifically to your needs! Within a week you’ll have a custom itinerary built just for you!
How it Works:
“All you have to do is show up!”
– Kaamna Dhawan (Founder of MomAboard)
I had the priviledge of working with Yukari who is the Mom Ambassador for Wine Country, USA. This type of trip was the perfect example of why I needed MomAboard. There are many wineries that are not family friendly, however Yukari found several work-arounds and suggestions for places that allow one parent to stay either a few feet back or in a separate garden with the child and switch off tastings. This is totally workable for us and I really appreciated the suggestion. She also found us beautiful accommodations at reasonable prices. Each part of the itinerary was broken down by day and time and included travel time as well. It even has a map with markers! Each recommendation also included why kids and parents love it, and anything additional you need to know!
I will definitely be making use of this service again and again in the future. I’m super excited about taking this adventure and feel a lot better about taking such a long road trip with a preschooler now that I know it’s planned out for us with him in mind!
