New Company To Help Moms And Their Kids Become Adventure Travelers

Thursday, September 21, 2017

A new company called Treks with Tykes will make it easy for moms to explore and travel with their kids. The startup, which launches Monday, offers local day adventures and multi-day excursions around the United States. These trips come complete with snacks, drinks, and outdoor rental gear. This makes it simple to just pack the kids up and start an adventure.  The treks take place with other mothers and their children who travel as a group. The company will expand its offerings to international destinations in the Spring of 2018.   

Treks With Tykes was co-founded by Chattanooga area mom and outdoor activity enthusiast, Liv Currie. 

“We’re creating a culture where our number one goal is empowering moms to explore their region, the United States and even the world with their children and each other," said Ms. Currie.  "We’re doing this by taking away as much stress, as possible, of traveling with kids. What’s more fun than adventuring with a group of moms who enjoy the same things while your kids are making new friends, as well?” 

Multiple treks are scheduled every month. To encourage women, specifically, most treks are “mom and me”, meaning exclusive to moms and kids. However, some trips are open to all members of the family. Membership options will soon be available, as well. Members will receive reduced trek prices and exclusive access to gear, discounts, and other resources. 

“It’s like a moms group for adventurers,” said Ms. Currie. “We couldn’t be more excited to be launching this here in Chattanooga. This area is filled with so much to do and see.”
