2TravelDads: the original LGBTQ Family Travel blog

We’re Chris and Rob Taylor, hi! Thanks for following along as we navigate the strange journey of parenthood and travel.

Our goal at 2TravelDads is to inspire LGBTQ families (all families actually) to go beyond their usual getaways and use travel to learn about and be part of a bigger world. We love to explore the world and learn something new every step of the way. –“Traveling the globe and giving the kids a broad worldview.” 

When it comes to our favorite destinations, we spend a lot of time in a few key areas. I’d like to think we’re experts on the Florida Keys, Savannah GA, Maine and, of course, our hometown of St Augustine!

Find out more about building our family through surrogacy, why Pride matters to us, and how we’ve been going plastic free. These are just some of the things important to us and how we’re raising our kids. And we love planning road trips!

Hotel and Resort Reviews

One of the biggest expenses people face when traveling is their hotel or resort. We’ve been writing about all the places we stay for a long time. If you’re looking for detailed info about a hotel you’ve seen us visit, or a resort someplace amazing, find it here. If we haven’t written about it, either we DON’T recommend it or we haven’t stayed. Email us if that’s the case!

If you’re interested in having us help tell your local story and partner up to encourage responsible tourism and supporting local businesses, please let us know! We love projects like this and are happy to share.


We’re located in Saint Augustine, Florida: the oldest city in the USA. Here we live our best Florida life by working from home, exploring the most fascinating places in nature with the kids and enjoying every second we can together. And we’re not afraid of a little luxury travel either. From the Rocky Mountaineer to UnCruise expeditions, we are up for all levels of exploring!

I (Rob) have written two books, the Road Trip Survival Guide and the Ultimate Travel Journal for Kids. Sharing my love of travel with my family and friends extends beyond the blog. I’m excited to continue to write as more and more people explore through road trips and go beyond their backyards.
