Day 284 - Find Something Fun and Family Friendly

Today's first time parenting tip - Find things to do near you at Parentography

The good folks at Lifehacker tipped me off to a new site for parents, Parentography.

The site is basically a way for parents to share information with each other about fun things to do in the area. Items like restaurants, attractions, activities, lodgings, parks, playgrounds and other family related activities.

All the reviews come from other parents, and the site is still in BETA right now, so things are pretty light. But as more and more people join, I can see this becoming a great tool when you're trying to plan some time out with the family.

I know whenever my wife and I want to go out to eat with the baby, its always a guessing game as to whether or not the restaurant has a family friendly atmosphere.

Another nice feature is the ability to create and view "excursions", which are combinations of family-fun activities that can range from a couple of hours to all-day trips.

This site will only be as good as the content people feed into it, so time will tell as to whether or not Parentography catches on. Things are also a little buggy right now, so I don't expect many people to latch on until they get the kinks worked out.
