    I liked Radisson on Facebook and looked at a lot of locations, but I’d go to the one on Galveston Beach so JB and I could go deep sea fishing!!

    Brandi says

    Since I have a toddler and a preschooler, I need all the travel tips I can get! :) My tip for traveling with little ones (or even school-age) is to pack a “snack bag” for the trip that includes healthy snacks (fruit/fruit cups, granola bars, etc.) in a large ziploc bag (very handy in the car and in the hotel), and keep an extra pair of jammies in the car if it is going to be a “late night”. That way the little ones will be dressed and ready for bed when you finally call it a night. :)

    My travel tip is to make copies of all credit cards and passports drivers licenses and other important documents like Visas. Leave one at home with someone, one in your luggage and you can also scan and email to yourself for even safer keeping. In case you lose your originals, you can use your copies to make phone calls, cancel credit cards and bring to Embassy or Consulate.

    If you are flexible in your travel time, try going for “shoulder” seasons like spring and fall. The weather is still nice and prices are usually at their best.
