The winter blues prompt many to escape to the Caribbean for a week or two at this time of year. How can you blame them? Day after endless day of dull, cold, grey weather will drive you crazy after a while. If you are planning to bring young children on your island break this winter, there are a few precautions you may want to take.
It seems fitting, somehow, that our final Awesome U.S. Destination is Death Valley National Park in California.
Traveling with kids can be stressful – especially if you haven’t brought the right gear. Carrying a heavy baby through the airport, paying extra to check gear and having your little one get lose on the plane can get an relaxing vacation off to a rocky start.
Our series on Five Awesome U.S. Destinations is compiled in no particular order. I say that because there are some who will argue that Part 4: Washington DC is the most important of the five. Washington DC is, of course, the capital of the United States and a nation’s capital is always an important place to visit, particularly for children.
New York City is not off limits to families. You don’t have to shelve your appetite for big city adventure once you have children.
At least once in every childhood, there should be an epic road trip to an epic destination. The Grand Canyon is such a place.
The holidays are fast approaching and many of us have to travel a long way to get a taste of that turkey. If your family is preparing to journey to the ends of the Earth, in search of green bean casserole and gravy slathered mashed potatoes, you may want to check out myscenicdrives.com, a website dedicated to being a one-stop shop for all your US travel needs.
They say, “It’s not camping. It’s Kamping,” and I’m inclined to agree. I’ve heard people refer to camping as "roughing it," but you only have to stay with KOA once and you’ll start to see this past time in a whole new way.
The environment is near the top of everyone’s list of concerns these days. We all want to leave our children with a safe and beautiful world. Teaching by example, many parents choose to ‘go green’ whenever there is an opportunity.
Picking your life up and moving it to the woods is not without its challenges, and camping with young children can result in some ‘unique’ issues. There is no concierge to call upon when problems arise, but with a little planning you can head trouble off at the pass and enjoy your family getaway.
