Family travel requires a bit more finesse during the planning stages than traveling solo. First, you need to find a destination that has activities geared to all the kids’ ages. If you are traveling with toddlers, preschoolers, or young children, you may be looking for a resort with babysitting services to enjoy an adult’s night out once or twice on your vacation. If you are traveling with older children or teens, you may want to find a destination that offers more adventurous or unique activities such as diving, rock climbing, or a rock and roll theme park. Still other families spend their summer vacations learning about their nation’s history by visiting the important landmarks and monuments and experiencing them first-hand.
When traveling with small children you need to consider all the extra travel gear you need. Bringing a cherished toy, could mean the difference between a calm and contented child versus a crying, inconsolable child. Not to mention all the extra feeding and diapering supplies needed for babies and toddlers.
