FAQ

You’ve got questions, and we’ve got answers. If you don’t see your question answered below, or wish to have clarification, please contact us via email and we’ll get back to you in just a few days with answers.

We were reviewed, where’s the story?

If we visited you, but you haven’t heard from us, or seen a review of your location (or you can’t find it,) use the contact page to inquire about it. We have dozens of reviews scheduled for release, it’s likely just a breakdown in communication, but ask to be certain.

What’s included?

We try to include everything. Museums, tourist attractions, family farms, restaurants, campgrounds, and even just interesting people.

What’s excluded?

We generally exclude “adult-themed” businesses. This means alcohol, tobacco, and other 18-21+ businesses. We will consider including certain casinos, provided that they are not strictly casinos, but also offer other events and attractions that may be relevant and interesting to children and/or parents traveling with children.

If there is an insurance, real estate or mortgage business, it’s very likely we’ve excluded you from our first or second round of reviews, but not intentionally. We just haven’t been directed there as of yet to perform a review.

List my company, event, attraction, hotel or restaurant?

Simply by asking, though please be aware that our resources are limited, and certain logistic, geographic and other factors may impact our ability to offer coverage. This is not meant as any discredit, but simply a matter of practicality. We promise to do our best to include each business in future reviews, once we know about them.

How much does it cost to be part of California with Kids?

There is no cost to be included in our reviews. We do have certain advertising packages available, but these are not required for inclusion. Our primary goal is to put together the most comprehensive and unbiased California review publication for parents traveling with children, and as such, there are certain necessary restrictions that must apply.

What about my company news and press releases?

If you have a newsletter or issue press releases, please use the contact form to get in touch with us and set us up on your mailing list. We’re happy to consider making news out of any press release or newsletter we receive.

Can I advertise on California with Kids?

Sure thing. We offer some of the best targeted advertising opportunities in the California tourism industry. For more information, please check out our advertising page for details.

Why isn’t MY city listed on CaliforniaWithKids.com?

If your city doesn’t appear, there could be a number of reasons for it. In our 2008 and 2009 tours, we worked with the state department of tourism to get the word out to everyone that we wanted to come out, and we further sent letters to every chamber of commerce in the state. If our signals got crossed, or we weren’t a good fit at the time, I apologize for that, but we can still work together. Just send us an email with a letter of invitation and we’ll do our best to work with you to get you included.

What is California with Kids?

We are a daily publication with full news accreditation. Our stories appear in the searchable database of Google News, as well as a number of other places, both online and in print.

Is there a 2010 Tour Schedule?

We have not been actively pursuing a 2010 tour schedule, but already two cities have invited us back to perform further reviews. If you would like your city to be included, please contact us as soon as possible to make this happen, as our schedule will be limited, and we can only accommodate a few cities this year.

How do I correct something in an article?

If you’ve found a mistake in an address, hours, rates or other such clerical correction items, please contact us using the contact page. Make sure you specify what business is misrepresented, what the correct information is, and how we may confirm it independently. If you feel the details are correct, but the tone and theme of the article is incorrect, send us a letter to that effect as well. Stick to the facts and avoid the angry vitriol, and we’ll do our best to see things from your side.

I want tons and tons of publicity, what should I do?

We’re represented by ThePublicityFirm.com, and they do great work. They’re extremely professional, and we’re very confident in their services.
