Our Approach

Welcome to Traveling with Monkeys, your one stop shop for tips, tricks,and  destinations for fun family adventures in the United States. As parents ourselves, we know that traveling with kids is not always the easiest feat, but we believe it is one of the best tools to strengthen family bonds.  After all, toys break, gadgets become dated, friends come and go, but family memories last forever. So cruise around, get inspired, and plan your next vacation.

Suggestions?  Comments?  Let us know how we can help.  We’d love to hear from you.

Mykee Saunders


Mykee is a mom of four, residing in the beautiful Cache Valley Utah. She loves to travel with her family and does so on average of seven times a year.  You’ll often find her traveling alone with her troop, since her husband is a tax accountant and is MIA for the first quarter of the year. She doesn’t let that stop her however, as she is always up for a traveling adventure. While she enjoys a good hike now and again and doesn’t hate camping, you won’t find her planning many outdoor vacations. When situations allow for it, she prefers vacations that can offer some degree of pampering, the beach, or exploring a big city.
