Inspiring travel and making family travel memories that last is what TravelingMamas.com is all about. But with the economy, telling readers about exotic locales isn’t exactly practical all the time. As a working mom who works shift work to help make ends meet in my household, I know it isn’t always easy to finance that yearly summer vacation. That’s why I always keep my eyes open for travel contests and sweepstakes that offer full trips, partial trips, and even tickets to some of my favorite attractions.
Here are some of the latest travel contests and deals from around the web:
