First time here on The How-to Guru?

Welcome! We created this travel blog for those families or couples wanting to plan the best family-friendly trips to the south, especially Georgia, Florida, and the Carolinas.

Start here to find “how-to” tips and secrets for southern vacations AND “how-to” home hacks for a lovely haven to return to.

Our mission is to make sure you create AMAZING stress-free vacations and get the most for your money while kicking stress and wasted time to the curb!

Yes, my main mission is helping women lose the overwhelm in planning family-friendly southern vacations, but you’ll notice that I used to also share “How-to” create a calm haven to come home to after these vacays.

I solely focus on travel these days, enjoy the home hacks that I’ve kept around here for you.

Mom-to-Mom tips, secrets, and details about destinations that you won’t find on the sites of resorts, restaurants, or attractions. The good, bad, and wonderful things to do with the hubs or kiddos in tow.


For instance, let’s talk about my friend, Brina…

She’s a wife and mom that loves to visit new places but feels like most trips with kids are too exhausting and expensive for the hassle.

Vacations are frustrating to her because:

#1 She thinks travel planning is a pain (too time consuming and stressful)

#2 She’s often spent too much $$$, rushed around destinations, & missed “must-see” spots.

#3 The fam has had meltdowns because of poorly-planned itineraries, meals, breaks, etc.

#4 She typically returns home exhausted, facing chaos & laundry.

Can you relate to Brina?
