About Hillary Bressler

Travel is my passion. Well, it was my passion until kids.  Wow, did I just say that?

My name is Hillary Bressler and I started Happy Traveler, a single parent family travel company in 2016.

Our mission is inspire parents to travel with their children through recommendations and reviews of family friendly destinations. We also provide all inclusive family vacations for single parents and their children alongside other single parents.  There is no reason to travel alone when we can be together.

I realized there is a huge need for single parent family travel. Traveling with kids is hard and traveling should be enjoyable for both the kids and the parents. Can I get an Amen?

I am a single mother of two, wife of none.  After having a few “defining moments” while traveling with friends (pre-kids), I was determined that family travel can be just as amazing. 

Giving other single parents the opportunity to make these same moments of happy traveling is my goal.

We do accept invitations to stay at resorts and destinations in exchange for coverage by Happy Traveler. It would be impossible to keep up this volume of coverage without these invitations. As a strict rule, however, the site does not accept cash payment—ever—in return for coverage. Furthermore, we do not guarantee favorable coverage at any time. If you do have a resort or destination that caters to families and single parents and want to send us an invitation, please write to us.
