VIA Contributors

Kimberly Brown Seely


Kimberly Brown Seely calls her two sons, Sam, 10, and James, 8, her "co-conspirators." They played hooky for Via and joined her at Disneyland, getting there when the gates opened and staying until 9:30 at night, braving the lines and the rides. The three of them also explored Seattle's Tropical Butterfly House and Insect Village. Having worked as a travel editor and freelance writer for the last 15 years, Kimberly has well-earned advice for parents traveling with kids: avoid overplanning.
