The rise of family blogs and booking engines make it easier than ever to book your next family vacation, but also leads to a debilitating case of analysis paralysis. Where should you go? Where should you stay? Who do you ask for advice? Instead of piecing together online reviews on your own, go straight to a community of encouraging family travelers on a platform you use the most. Facebook groups are a goldmine for families trying to navigate the online world that is all things travel.
