Plan a Family-Friendly Vacation With Poshbrood

I don't know about you, but the idea of traveling with my kids is anything but a vacation. The packing of all the crap, the schlep to the airport, the flight (how am I supposed to entertain these monsters for a five-hour flight?), and finally the destination which is inevitably a death trap in terms of exposed electrical outlets, pools to fall in, sharp corners and many, many opportunities to destroy items that I will have to later pay for. A very wise friend of mine once said, "It's not a vacation, it's a relocation." Same schedule, same demands, just a different locale.

Enter Poshbrood, founded by mother of three Elizabeth Thorp, who started this website for families who want to travel, but not necessarily in Griswald-style. Just because we have kids doesn't mean we don't have money to spend on a nice hotel, amenities included, stink-eye from child-free guests excluded. Poshbrood does the legwork for you in researching, visiting and vetting luxurious family travel destinations. Now if only they offered a "baby-sitter included" package!
