About Us


Tracy Murphy - Expert in the Top Family Vacation DestinationsDo you want to take a dream vacation with your family and have someone else worry about the details?

I'd love to help! My name is Tracy Murphy, owner of adventurewithfamily.com and Tracy Murphy Travel. I caught the "travel bug" from my mother years ago and have been dreaming and plotting vacations ever since!

My personal travels have taken me all over the United Sates from Seattle, Washington to Bar Harbor Maine down to the Outer Banks, North Carolina, and on to Florida (Disney World - of course!). My adventures outside the US have taken me to Spain, Ireland, England, Wales, Scotland, China, St. Lucia, Jamaica, Mexico, Dominican Republic and the Bahamas...with more trips on the way!

With two children, I know how "interesting" family vacations can be. My hope is that whether you plan to lounge on the beach, hang out with Mickey Mouse, saddle up at a ranch out west, or cruise in the Caribbean - we can make your family vacation one that you and your children will remember for a lifetime!


By starting Tracy Murphy Travel and launching www.adventurewithfamily.com, I am able to combine my love for travel with first-rate service, exceptional companies and the desire to send you places you have only visited in your dreams.  I will help you make sense of the numerous family vacation options, pinpointing top family vacation destinations.

Since its beginning in 2007, Tracy Murphy Travel has grown through the commitment of our wonderful clients. We now have 3 agents working hard to best serve all of our clients. We each bring something unique to the table and hope that our combined experiences help us to offer you the best vacation possible.

Stephanie MansellI am Stephanie Hilgedag Mansell and I hope to help you with all of your travel needs! My husband, Coby and I have 3 wonderful children - Aidan, Tristan, and Maci. We all have the travel bug! We barely get home from a vacation before my youngest is asking where we get to go next!

We have visited Disney World yearly and have stayed in several of the resorts onsite. We are fortunate to have close family in Florida, Texas, Washington D.C., New York and California so always have an excuse to go somewhere! Not only do we love to travel as a family, my husband and I have made it a point to take yearly trips without children. We have been to Spain and Portugal, the East Coast, cruised the Caribbean, all-inclusive resorts in St. Lucia and Mexico, Costa Rica, St. John, Arizona, Key West, and much more!

I promise to offer personalized service, to be easy to reach via e-mail, text or phone at anytime, and to always research the best possible price and option for your vacation. I look forward to helping you plan your next dream vacation!
