I’ve been a fan of Trekaroo for quite a while–it’s kind of like TripAdvisor, but with families in mind. I’ve reviewed many of the places we’ve visited, asked questions on the discussion board, and used other parents’ recommendations to mold my own plans.
The KidsMobile is Trekaroo’s way of focusing on one city at a time. I jumped on the Chicago segment, so you’ll see my recommendations along with those of other local Chicago parents and travelers.
