In this indispensable guide by the mega-popular Bucket List Family, discover expert tips for traveling with kids and 50 not-to-be-missed destination itineraries.

As a family of five, the Bucket List Family has swum with whales in Tonga, slept in castles in Ireland, lived on a houseboat in Amsterdam, eaten breakfast with giraffes in Kenya, spent Halloween in Disneyland, and visited more than 90 countries around the world. Now, Jessica Gee brings her tips and tricks to you in the ultimate expert’s guide to traveling as a family.

This beautifully illustrated guide provides all the know-how to fulfill your own family’s bucket list—including how-tos for picking a destination, packing, budgeting, and even surviving a 12-hour plane ride. Along with personal family anecdotes, Jess offers 50 itineraries for family-friendly destinations and inspiring top-10 lists with destinations for every age. You’ll learn everything you need to know to take a family vacation to:

  • South Africa, where you can walk on a beach with penguins
  • Utah, where ice castles bring a world of magic to a vacation full of natural wonders
  • Berlin, where holidays come to life at beloved Christmas markets
  • The Galapagos, where your kids will squeal with joy as they encounter penguins and larger-than-life tortoises
  • Alaska, where you’ll feel you’ve gone truly wild in the last frontier
  • And so much more!

This insider's guide from one of the world’s most traveled families will inspire you to create new and lasting memories with your family for years to come.
Jessica Gee began the popular YouTube channel The Bucket List Family with her husband after planning to travel the world for five months with their two young children. Eight years and another son later, they’ve visited more than 90 countries around the world, have grown a following of nearly 2 million YouTube subscribers and 3 million Instagram followers, and continue to find ways—big and small—to add to their lifelong travel bucket list. After buying an 80-year-old bungalow in Hawaii, they have a permanent base for their three children—Dorothy, Manilla, and Calihan—for the first time in half a decade. But they continue to explore new destinations, from Alaska to Bali, as often as they can.
