#FT4RL Recap of Recaps and Spitballing #3

This post is a quick round-up of the presentations and various reviews of Family Travel for Real Life that speakers and guests have been kind enough to post. If I’ve missed yours, please let me know.

To get a feel for the event, check out the Twitter feed and podcast.

Dan at Points with a Crew once again volunteered to live blog the events and his recap links to each session.

Other speaker and guest reviews include ones by Chasing the Points, Carolina Travel Girl, Trips with Tykes, Miles to Memories,As The Joe Flies the jaw-dropping Miles4more and of course my own thoughts.

UPDATED: FT4RL 3 will be 10/24 in Suburban DC. Details here!

I’m also brainstorming ideas for #3 and welcome your input. So far I’m considering October 24th or November 7th as tentative dates. It seems the right balance: after school start mayhem but before the holidays and (hopefully) snow. The following locations popped into my head for various reasons:

  • Fort Lauderdale or Miami (easy transport, lots to do)
  • Downtown Philadelphia, Baltimore or Pittsburgh (3 under-rated cities I love)
  • DC, but this time on the metro. I loved the Hyatt House Dulles but know it was isolated.
  • Dallas or Houston (lower on my list just due to lack of knowledge of the area)

Please share your thoughts in the comments or just tag me on Twitter.  I’m also throwing out a wide net for speakers. If you have an interesting family travel story to share, please let me know.

    Really like the idea of DC, PHL or BWI. Easy to get to, lots to do. Reward flights should be available on multiple carriers. While FLL sounds warm and appealing, weekend award flights may be problematic, especially on the return.
