Have you heard of Trekaroo? It’s a travel planning and travel-themed social networking site for parents. Trekaroo‘s focus is U.S. domestic travel and they’ve got a great community of parents reviewing destinations, accommodation and attractions.
The KidsMobile is Trekaroo’s way of focusing on one city at a time and inviting mom and dad bloggers in that city to contribute with their recommendations for family activities, eateries and places to stay. When the Trekaroo team asked me if I’d like to be involved in the KidsMobile Seattle stop, I jumped at the chance. Here’s the list of fun activities and adventures which have been reviewed by Moms-In-The-Know on the Trekaroo Seattle KidsMobile Stop.
