When Glimpse Guides first launched in September of 2015, Jordan wasn’t sure where it would take her. At first she just wanted a place to keep track of her own travel finds to share with friends, but it soon turned into so much more. It became a place for her to help families across the globe prepare for their own adventures, because Jordan and Barrett think traveling with children is one of the most important things that can be done for their development. They want their children to see the world and be inspired by other cultures, and want them to appreciate the way that other people live and do things. It is their hope that these guides will help all of you do the same.
However, they also don’t want to alter a chic trip just because rambunctious toddlers are in tow! As seasoned followers will know, Glimpse Guides is a collection of city guides for parents who don’t want to give up dining in stylish restaurants, staying in luxury hotels or shopping at some of the most charming and exclusive boutiques in the world, just because they are traveling with their children. All recommendations in the guides are kid-friendly yet fashionable, and the Glimpse Guides team has personally experienced each one with their own families. After much planning and building, the Glimpse app of city guides for families launched on September 1st, 2016, beginning with the London guide.
Profits from the app’s one-time, $4.99 fee go to Give a Glimpse (click here for more info), followed by free, automatic downloads of additional cities as completed. Barrett joined the team in 2018 because she and Jordan share a combined love of other cultures, and not only want to teach their children how to travel well and respect these cultures, but also want to teach them the importance of giving back.
Other features of the app:
-A section of Experiences for families
-Date Night restaurants just for parents
-Address, phone number, website, and business hours for each recommendation, when available
-Additional information for restaurants describing décor, type of cuisine and attire required
-GPS-enabled maps of each city, with locations of all recommendations including proximity to user’s current location
