Kids in Chicago, Expedia Style!

I'm happy to report that I am one of the family travel bloggers participating in Expedia's Kids in the City summer campaign (see the new fancy ad to the left?!) This summer, Expedia is profiling 12 wonderful cities to travel to this summer with your kids. I'm representing Chicago, one of just two midwestern cities to make the list.

Here are a few things I've written about Chicago, just to wet your Windy City whistle:

You can read my Chicago fact sheet at Expedia here.

Next week, I'll be offering up some tips for visiting Chicago's famous Museum Campus. This area of the city is, in my opinion, a big reason why Chi-town is so kid-friendly (and fun!). You can also watch a video where I chat up my top 5 things to do in Chicago with kids. And if you're just can't get enough Chicago trip ideas and tips, follow my Chicago Pinterest board.

Join me and some of the other Expedia Kids in the City bloggers on Wednesday, May 23 at 1:30 p.m. EST on Twitter for an Expedia Twitter party/chat about family travel. Use the #ExpChat hashtag.

For now, head over to The Mother of All Trips to read her post about Philadelphia. I've only traveled to Philly when I was a full-time working gal for business, but I'd love to take my kids there. More cities will follow in the days ahead, and I'll be sharing links to those on the Arrows Sent Forth Facebook page, so give it a "like" if you haven't yet. Videos about the other cities are available here. (I'm in some great company on this campaign... what a fun group of moms!)

Disclosure: I was compensated for my participation in Expedia's Kids in the City campaign.



  1. Congrats - that's exciting news! Chicago has always been one of our favourite cities to take the kids for a few days.

  2. Very excited for you and looking forward to reading about Chicago (and some of the other cities as well).
