Today is an exciting day, one that has been in the making for a long time. It has been 11 years since we launched Urban List and our community of more than 3 million—you guys!—have expanded and grown up with us.
Like everyone, your lives and the things that make them up have continued to shift and evolve.
In a recent survey we conducted with you, we found out that 44% have kids, are currently pregnant, or are planning on having children in the next 12 months. Even more are the best aunties and uncles going ‘round.
When it came to the #1 source you go to for inspiration when planning what to do with kids in tow, you struggle to find reccos that you not only trust, but are tailored to your own personalities and cultural compass.
Enter Urban List Fam, a brand new vertical we are so excited to be launching today in partnership with BMW.
At Urban List, we believe that being a parent doesn't mean you have to compromise on the things that make you, you!
A whopping 98% of you said that exposure to rich cultural events and experiences plays an important role in a child’s development.
83% said you would travel more with kids and eat out more with kids if only you had access to trusted recommendations.
1 in 4 Urban List staff are parents, and even more like to spoil their nieces, nephews and friends’ minis. And we all had one common challenge: there is nothing like Urban List to help find all the foodie, travel and cultural experiences we thrived on, pre-kiddly winks, that are kid-friendly.
So What Can You Expect?
Urban List Fam will be the go-to source for parents and family who are looking to fill their kids' minds, souls and bellies with all the best fam-friendly recommendations that will also keep the adults feeling like their true selves. We will now extend our hyper-local creds to all that encompasses kids, so you can expect to see content like the best family-friendly holidays, the tastiest kids menus going around, awesome things to do in your city with your littlies and pram-friendly walks and cafes.
How Will This Impact The Urban List You Know And Love?
Only for the better! We know that each person out there comes to Urban List for different reasons and we will continue to treat your needs as distinct and unique.
If you’re looking for fam-friendly intel, you’ll find it under the brand new tab on our navigation bar on site, but it’s important to recognise that not all of our content will be about kids.
We know a lot of you come to us for travel recommendations, and we’ll keep those coming on our travel page so you can continue to plan your post-pandemic holidays. The best binge-worthy shows will still be coming in hot over on our entertainment page and we still have you covered when it comes to pet, style, health, sustainability and career content and, of course, the top eats and things to do in your city.
So whether you're a parent, or you like to show your nieces, nephews or friends’ minis a good time, you've come to the right place.
