While traveling as a single mom can seem daunting, with a little planning and preparation you can have a great trip with your children.

The summer I became a single Mom, we already had a family vacation planned for the next month. The vacation was paid for and the children were already excited. After the huge blow of their dad leaving, how could I also disappoint them by skipping our vacation. I’m so grateful I had that push to jump in to traveling with my kids as a single mom. Three years later we’ve traveled together countless times. Through all that traveling I love to share my best single mom travel tips.
