Best Family Vacation Spots for Infants & Toddlers
Looking for the best family vacation spots for your infant or toddler?
Many people think, “I have a baby now. It’s going to be years before I can go on a vacation!” I thought the same thing but nothing could be further from the truth. I couldn’t imagine having to pack up all of the equipment, diapers, food and toys that would be needed on a vacation with my son. Just the thought made my head spin!
Traveling with a baby or toddler is actually not as difficult as it first seems. There are several different types of accommodations available to families that make our lives easier. Some of them include:
Family Vacation Resorts for Infants & Toddlers
Most hotels are not known for their childcare programs, but there are some who are jumping on the family bandwagon. Check out these hotel chains for a family friendly touch.
All Inclusive Family Resorts
All Inclusive vacation packages are appealing more and more to families because all meals and drinks included in one rate. No more worrying every time your child wants another soda!
Most cruise lines are now offering infant and toddler care to parents so that they can relax in the spa or get some much needed adult time. Check out these cruise lines for the best options for families with kids.
Vacation Home Rentals – A great option for families because they usually offer the most room and a fully stocked kitchen. This is a great help in keeping food costs down from not having to eat out.
Traveling to and from our vacation destination is always the most hectic and difficult task. As long as I try to stick to my son’s routine, it’s usually smooth sailing. Don’t get me wrong, my son has been known to throw a fit for no apparent reason.
It’s usually after a full day of traveling and it’s his way of saying...
“Whoa! I’m at the end of my rope!”
Honestly, I’m just as tired as he is. If it were socially acceptable, I would have thrown a fit at the same time. At times like this, a quiet space and some cuddling seem to do both of us a world of good!
I have found that making lists prior to traveling is a huge help. They keep me on track, and I don’t usually pack too much if I stick to the list. Otherwise it seems like I throw everything but the kitchen sink into my luggage… and with having to pay luggage fees on airlines, none of us can afford to do that these days.
