Please join your family travel community on Google+

We love sharing our trips and travel advice with our friends on Away is Home, but we also see ourselves as part of a broader community of family travelers. So when Google+ introduced a new feature that allows you to join a virtual “community” earlier this week, we knew we wanted to be a part of it.

We’ve started the Family Travel community on Google+ — and we want you to join us!

The Family Travel community is all about getting away together, whether you’re traveling with young kids, adult children, grandkids, the extended family, or just your spouse or partner. We define family in a very open, inclusive sense, so when we say family, we mean you.

I hope you’ll accept our invitation. Here’s what you’ll find in the coming days and weeks:

• Insider tips and strategies for traveling with the whole family.

• A fun, engaging discussion with other travelers.

• Interaction with subject-matter experts.

• And, of course, deals for family travelers that you won’t want to miss.

Membership in the Family Travel community is open to anyone. We’ve sent out invitations to our friends. We hope you’ll tell your friends about this new community, too.

See you online.
