I had an opportunity to ask some questions to Chris and here are his answers.
How can a family save money on a vacation?
Bundling all your vacation plans can save money. For example, using a travel website or app like Expedia, families can plan flights and hotels in one location. Often companies will offer specials or discounts when bundling. Other options like all inclusive resorts can keep budgets in check because meals, activities and other services can be included in a single price.
Where are some hot family destinations?
Three hot areas for families are Williamsburg, Virginia, San Diego, California and Las Vegas. Williamsburg offers themed towns and historical venues. San Diego offers fun family related attractions. Lad Vegas offers sand buggies for family adventure.
How to do keep a child's attention?
A few ideas to keep kids' attention is to plan your family's outings around a meal. Kids who aren't fighting hunger are more likely to pay attention to that museum guide. Also, plan breaks into your day. No one functions well when he is over tired.

This travel expert makes sure to have his mobile device and laptop on his travels.
