Attention parents, kids, and other family-friendly folks!

As a parent, I know it can be frustrating to try and find someplace to take the kids or to try and get information about a reputable doctor/dentist/facility. Well, my cousin was also feeling that pain and decided to do something about it.

The result?

Kidz List is a "One-Stop, Online Resource for all things Kids. It is the answer to all those times you wondered if you were ever going to be able to find a kid friendly restaurant that you could all enjoy a meal at, or the great picnic spot or the fantastic one of a kind pediatrician. We have it all for you in one place – "

It started in her neighborhood up in Portland, Oregon and has expanded to now have listings in Seattle Washington, Austin Texas and (my personal favorite) Salt Lake City Utah.

The site is community driven, meaning users provide their reviews and feedback on the listings of the site as well as post their own listings if anything is missing. There's also a "classified" board and a "question" section where parents can ask for and share advice on their burning questions.

I am super excited to see this expand to my hometown.

If you live near any of the supported cities, go hop on and give some reviews and feedback. And if your city isn't listed yet, join up anyway so she can see the growing desire elsewhere (maybe you can help gather info for your town).
