Anne Taylor Hartzell is the founder, writer and editor of the awesome family travel website, HipTravelMama. I had an opportunity yesterday to interview her by phone about a recent Expedia survey and ask her opinions about spring travel tips and trends, hotel and cruise deals, and planning.
Some of the key points of the survey results are:
** Florida remains a top destination for 2012 and trips to the Florida Keys are up 37% over last year for March and April.
** You don’t have to go to a beach to find great spring deals — New York, DC and Denver are hot, too.
** Consider a Caribbean cruise to save some money, but still enjoy a warm and sunny vacation.
Whatever you do this spring — have fun!
Take a look at the video to hear more of Anne’s excellent advice.
Great interview, Cathy! I love the idea of taking a springtime road trip, even with high gas prices.
Yeah, me too! Anne made a good point about taking shorter driving trips and staying longer in the destination. Pretty good idea, I think.
Now I know why you were asking questions about videos! 🙂
I got the email about this survey!
Can’t fool you, can I, Jeremy? I got some very helpful advice on it, too.
The survey is very interesting.
A very interesting interview, Cathy. Quite a bit of inspiration there!
Thanks, Andrew. Anne is quite a travel inspiration for people with kids.
