Trekaroo Launches Restaurant Reviews (and a giveaway)!

My absolute least favorite part of traveling with kids is dealing with mealtime.  Anybody who has eaten dinner in public with two preschoolers can understand my pain.  Kids can be loud, squirrely, and often have the table manners of a caveman.  It is easy to find a family friendly spot close to home because I am familiar with the area and I know what sort of food and atmosphere the restaurant provides, but when we are traveling to a new destination, I feel like we are at the mercy of whatever chain restaurant is off the interstate.

In an effort to help families travel better and enjoy their public mealtimes more, Trekaroo is excited to announce the recent launch of our Restaurant Review section.  With help from our fabulous Trekaroo members, we have no doubt that this new section will be as helpful to parents as the activity and hotel review sections have been.  We hope that you will share your favorite local dining spots as well as restaurants that your family loved (or didn’t love) while on vacation.
