Traveling with young children and, dare we say, toddlers, can often mean packing everything but the kitchen sink. You’ll need all the essentials, from food, clothing and baby hygiene products to travel gear and just-in-case accessories for every scenario under the sun. Sounds like a lot because it is, but companies like Totts can cut out a significant part of the packing process by shipping all the consumables you need for your trip, like wipes, diapers, body wash, detergent, hand sanitizer and more, to your destination. Travel a little lighter and have all the what-if necessities waiting for you at your Airbnb, hotel or campsite.
Wearing sunscreen at the beach is a given, especially for little ones running in and out of the water — and anyone who forgets that usually regrets it with a vengeance the next day. One aspect of sunscreen I admittedly didn’t think about until just a few years ago is how detrimental its impact is on marine life and reefs.

The chemical makes coral more susceptible to bleaching and damages its DNA, interfering with reproduction and killing dependent marine life in the process.

The Iditarod is one of those topics everyone is sort of familiar with. Unless you’re a major fan or dogsledder yourself, there is a good chance your Iditarod knowledge ends with knowing the race is a major event where dogsledders ride for hundreds of miles through treacherous terrain. Where did the marvel get its start though?
VisitEngland is getting serious about fun with a new travel campaign aimed at luring families with preschoolers to England.
