Produced by Equator Creative Media, Travel With Kids features two kid brothers and their parents (the Roberts Family) traveling to well-known, and off the tourist track destinations in various hot spots. The series is both entertaining and educational, yet delivers practical travel information that is interesting and useful for families planning a trip, and armchair travelers alike.
