One year ago today, The Vacation Gals launched their travel website, covering vacation destinations ideal for family travel, romantic weekends and girlfriend getaways, and offering plenty of travel tips to make your next trip go more smoothly.
The master mom-minds behind The Vacation Gals? Beth Blair, Jennifer Miner and Kara Williams are the three travel writers -- and mothers of young children -- who blog several times weekly at the website that has garnered recognition from the North American Travel Journalists Association ("Award of Merit") and the 2010 Bloggies awards (finalist in the Best Travel Blog category) just months after the website's inception.
