Twist Summer Issue + {Hotel Stay GIVEAWAY!}

Twist Summer Issue

It’s HERE! The Twist Travel Magazine Summer issue is here and well, it’s pretty bad ass if I do say so myself. This is Twist’s second issue and if you thought the first one was great just wait until you flip through this one! We have even more incredible travel experts that have contributed to the Summer issue and honestly, they are the reason this family travel magazine is filled with such valuable content. 

So just where are we taking you in the Twist Summer issue? Well, we have the inside scoop on two hot US Summer destinations, San Diego and New York City from local moms who know just where to go. We’ve also got a very detailed itinerary for a Southwest road trip and an off the grid family vacation spot just over the border in Tofino, British Columbia. We also hop over to Europe for a unique visit to London and I give you a quick guide to taking the kids to Lisbon and visiting the many castles and palaces of Sintra in Portugal.

Also in this issue our “She Gets Around” feature (which is my personal favorite) highlights a special mother and son trip to Hawaii from the founder of Flytographer, Nicole Smith. You will not want to miss this endearing story about the magic of traveling with just one child. I believe that this is something every parent should consider making time in their busy schedule for. These trips do not have to be to some far off destination either, it can be a simple weekend getaway within a few miles of where you live. Just as long as you are both off the computer, away from the devices and spending quality time together doing things you enjoy. These trips will bring you closer together and the memories will last a lifetime, I promise.

Oh but wait, there is also Summer beauty must haves, weekender bags, fabulous hotel picks, ice cream trucks around the USA and much more! 

Just GO READ IT!
