The Best Way to Find and Book Family Attractions!

We are I the home stretch of holiday shopping, and I am a big believer in giving the gift of memories and experiences whenever possible.  For birthdays, often instead of parties my family opts for a unique mini-vacation, and for Christmas, I like to wrap up vouchers and tickets to local events and attractions that we can experience over school break.

I have used TripAdvisor for years to find hotels, restaurants, and local attractions.  It has always been my go-to spot to check out a business before making reservations or purchasing tickets.  However, it was always an extension of my purchasing process.  I would find a place and read all the amazing reviews that TripAdvisor offers, and then visit a secondary site to book my visit. 

Now TripAdvisor has created the ability to book attractions, tours, and experiences right on!  As a busy mom who loves finding unique experiences for my family and making memories with my children, this service is perfect.  I love the streamlined process that TripAdvisor is offering, once I find the attraction that speaks to my heart I click the button, choose a day, and purchase my tickets, super simple!  Plus, they offer over 56,000 bookable experiences in 2,500 destinations worldwide, so there is something for everyone.

We used TripAdvisor to book our Christmas in the Wild experience at the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa last week and if you followed along on Instagram Stories, you already know what an amazing time it was.  From elves taking “elfies” and glow cotton candy to snow in Florida, this experience filled us with the Christmas spirit.

  Plus, the Lowry Park Zoo is one of my favorite zoos to visit, the animal exhibits are top notch and they offer so many other attractions for the kids, including rides and a sprinkler park. 

We will also be visiting the Florida Aquarium next week, so be sure to follow along on Instagram Stories to see all the great memories to be made there!
