Kids having fun Kalahari Round Rock

Hi I am Jeremy Coleman, founder of Texas Family Vacation I a husband, father of 6-year-old boy/girl twins, and I started this site to help people find the best family vacations in Texas on a budget.

I started Texas Family Vacation on a very simple premise. To have outstanding excursions with my family and share them with others.When I became a parent of twins in 2014 I turned to the internet for advice on various subjects including traveling with kids. And one thing became abundantly clear right away. Some people knew what they were talking about and others were full of BS.

I could tell based on my experiences as a parent what articles were based on real experience parents have had and which ones were trying to sell something. I remember searching the term “Texas Family Vacation”. I had several articles that offer a cornucopia of useless advice.

Go to Dallas, Go to Houston, Go to Austin, that was useless advice. I am a native Texan and I know how big of a place Houston and Dallas is. You spend the better part of 3 hours drive from one side of it to the other. What especially should I go in those big cities

I was looking for something more than that. I wanted to know:

Where should I go? How can I save money on hotels? What is the best way to get there? Where are the clean restrooms at? Where were the kid-friendly restaurants, Not the upscale pretentious ones or chain restaurants? But the once-in-a-lifetime experience with food the kids would eat? That was the kind of blog I was looking for and could not find. So I started one.

We monetize our blog with affiliate links. So if you click on a link and go to another site and buy something, I will receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. Currently, I receive enough small commissions to offset the cost of maintaining the blog.

Texas Family Vacation really is a labor of love. I want to share the inside information with parents so they can have the ultimate Texas experience with their families.
