GBOGH Awarded!

There was some BIG satisfaction from learning this month that two blog posts from last year earned “Finalist” spots in the 2012 NATJA (North American Travel Journalists’ Association) Awards! In the category of “Internet/Family Travel,” our post on Gatorland’s world’s largest collection of white alligators was recognized. In the category of “Travel Tips & Advice,” this post on “How to Find a Kid-Friendly Hotel” earned recognition as well.

World’s Largest Stuff-of-the-Month
