Announcing the Alamo Chief Travel Moms! #AlamoDriveHappy


I couldn’t be more excited to announce that I am now an Alamo Chief Travel Mom! There are five bloggers on the council, and we’re super excited to be working with Alamo to inspire #AlamoDriveHappy travels!

Alamo Chief Travel Moms

Over the next four months, the Alamo Chief Travel Moms will introduce some fun travel themes:

Phase 1 — April: Preparing a Fun Journey

Phase 2 — May: Personalizing Your Vacation

Phase 3 — June: Capturing the Moment

Phase 4 — July: The Best Summer Ever

For each monthly theme, we’re putting together a “Drive Happy Box”. We’ll each be including an item designed to make the entire travel experience more fun and exciting!

We’ll also be throwing Twitter parties where you’ll have the chance to win one of the Drive Happy boxes. :)

I can’t wait to share it all with you, so stay tuned for an Alamo Drive Happy summer!

In the meantime, enjoy this infographic from the kids’ point of view.

Since 63 percent of parents said their children influenced their choice of vacation destination, the infographic shows stats and ideas from kids to help parents everywhere increase the fun while planning, packing, participating in activities and making memories for their family vacations.
