Life-changing family vacations don’t have to break the bank. Make every day an adventure, and your kids will love being wherever they are.

At Family Travel Radio, we understand the pressure that parents feel to take their kids on extravagant family vacations.

In this episode, Erin Kirkland joins us to discuss affordable family vacations that don’t forsake adventure or meaningful experiences.

Erin is an author, freelance writer, and Alaska's only family travel journalist. Her guidebook series titled "Alaska On the Go" is required reading for families exploring the 49th state with children.

Erin’s website,, has been the formative source for kid-friendly destinations and activities since its launch in 2008.

Erin's commitment to Alaska's children and youth is evident in all her endeavors, most recently through her efforts to support literacy by the establishment of 15 "Read On the Fly" bookshelves in Alaska airports, giving kids the opportunity to pick up a free book instead of electronic devices.

Erin and her family (husband James, sons Owen and Matt) live, work, and play in Alaska's largest city of Anchorage.
