Great Travel Links for 29 June 2009

Welcome to a short list of useful reads from around the Web – I used to post this on most Mondays but have been a bit, ahem, diverted lately.

***  A huge thank you to the blogs who hosted the bi-weekly/fortnightly Carnival of Cities recently:  Nerd’s Eye ViewUpTake Attractions, Ajay’s Writings on the WallFear and Loathing – The Gonzo Papers and Eyeflare.  The next edition of this blog carnival (featuring posts about any aspect of a SINGLE city) is scheduled to be hosted here on Family Travel. Submit your posts here by noon CST 30 June.

***  From TravelSavvyMom:  English Castles: 5 Family Favorites and Honolulu: Five Free Family Favorites (don’t forget that THIS is why you take children to Hawaii.)

***  Of course it isn’t February, and it doesn’t matter, either – Black History Year: 7 spots to keep learning year-round.

***  Right here on BootsnAll: 6 ways that traveling with kids can actually improve your travel experience.

***  Welcome consumer travel expert Chris Elliott‘s personal family blog, Souvenirist.  Check it out!

***  Yeah, give ’em hell! Rules for Parents at Children’s Museums from Travels with Children. Hint: you can’t drop ’em into a room and disappear, as understandably tempting an option as that may be….

***  I love me some World Hum….if you don’t read them already, enjoy Eight Great Family Travel Stories.

***  The UK reports in – a British Mum blog at Have A Lovely Time.

***  They’re so highly respected and they are SO not into glitz – National Geographic Traveler brings you their Family Vacation Planner.

***   Are you in the US Pacific Northwest? Summer Family Fun in Seattle from WanderMom.

***  This looks wonderful for families – the outdoor Starlight Theatre, on the Kansas City tourism Web site.

Finally, I wanted to let you know that I’ll be launching a business soon; an online learning community with entrepreneurship expert Becky McCray,  including my new personal blog that is focused on how travel and tourism organizations can use social media.

More details to follow….
