About Travel Explorator

The Mission

Our mission at Travel Explorator is to provide helpful travel guides, gear recommendations and travel insights to help others with their travel plans. Whether it's for solo-travelers, families or you're typical vacationer, we hope to be one of the top resources when it comes to deciding where you vacation next. Our articles are aimed at helping people find things to do in specific cities, states and countries but also learn how to prepare for them.

Who We Are

We are adventurers and travel enthusiasts. We first established the website in 2020, and are using it to keep track of our travels but also help others with their own. We plan to cover everything from tips on saving money when traveling, to figuring out things to do in certain places.
