Welcome! I’m Tamara Gruber, the Founder and Editor of We3Travel and diligent travel planner. I started We3Travel in 2013 to share my love of trip research and planning to make it easier for others to plan their own trips and to encourage families to travel the globe with their kids. Since that time, We3Travel has grown to reach over 100,000 readers a month with travel tips, destination guides, and sample itineraries.
Before branching into travel, I spent over 20 years managing marketing communications and creating strategic marketing plans for technology-based companies, utilizing my BS and MBA in Business Administration and Marketing. When launching We3Travel, I was able to utilize my marketing acumen, writing skills, SEO-expertise, and experience leveraging early-stage social media platforms to build my business.
In addition to my marketing background, I also spent a few years as a Travel Advisor for leading family travel agency Ciao Bambino, providing unique insights into the many-layered travel industry. In 2016, I launched and began co-hosting the Vacation Mavens family travel podcast. Then in 2020, I expanded my publishing business with the launch of YourTimetoFly.com, a travel website for women over 40.
I have also written for Lonely Planet, TravelAge West, Family Vacation Critic, and Trivago. As a professional travel writer, I am a member of the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW), Family Travel Association (FTA), and the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA).

Where to Find Me
While I grew up a Jersey girl and spent a stint in New York City, for the last 20+ years I have called Rhode Island home. When not at home plugging away at travel writing, you will often find me road tripping in the U.S., hiking mountains or glamping in New England, or exploring the cities and small towns of Europe. In all of my trips, I love incorporating historical learning, cultural experiences, outdoor adventure, and, mostly importantly, some delicious food and wine.
While I do love maximizing airline and hotel loyalty programs, I’m a sucker for a boutique hotel with local charm and small luxury properties that focus on service and style.
