No matter how long you are in New York City, there is truly something for everyone. From Central Park to the Empire State Building to the Staten Island Ferry, I can not recommend NYC enough as a fun family destination.
New York City at Christmas is magical. As a kid, I had seen so many movies showing impressive window displays, FAO Schwarz, Rockefeller Plaza and, of course, a snow covered Central Park. We visited once back in 2016, but only for a few hours. This year, we went for 3 days, 2 nights. We found the perfect balance of Christmas, New York City staples and toddler friendly activities. The entire weekend felt serendipitous.
We recently embarked on the ultimate adventure with toddlers; Walt Disney World. I have been skeptical of Disney since we’ve had kids. I couldn’t imagine the park, the crowds, or the lines with 2 toddlers in tow. However, we decided to take on the challenge for our son’s second birthday! I knew I wanted to try to save money where ever we could without losing anything in the experience. I called around, did some research myself and I decided to stay off property and forgo the meal plan. I have put together exactly what we spent and where we spent it.
We've traveled with a toddler. Actually, we travel with TWO toddlers now. We consider ourselves master toddler entertainers. HA! But seriously, we have conquered toddler boredom time and time again. OH, and while we do love a good movie, we don’t always resort to screen time to entertain our two. We’ve compiled a list of the most effective toys, books, and games that have captivated our toddlers while were trekking around the world with them. If you’re looking for toddler entertainment inspo, you’ve come to the right place!
"We've traveled with a baby. We've traveled with a toddler. We've traveled with a baby AND toddler. We've also traveled with a lot of crappy products and a lot of REALLY HELPFUL products.
Here a list of the 25 BEST products we have used while traveling with our kids!"
Alabama has at least 25 waterfalls worth hiking out to and probably many more beyond that. We recently spent our 4 days and 3 nights Labor Day weekend camping in Northern Alabama on the hunt for some gorgeous waterfalls. We brought along our two kids; ages 3 and 1. We tent camped in Desoto State Park and in Noccalula Falls Park. Tent camping with toddlers is not for the faint of heart, but we were surprised with how well our two did. Our days were spent hiking and hunting waterfalls and our evenings were spent roasting marshmallows; a perfect trip in my opinion. We are going to share which waterfalls we visited and some tips for making the most of your Alabama adventure!
Waco, Texas; made famous by Chip & Joanna Gaines. Actually, I wouldn't say they just made it famous, they brought the entire city back to life. Everything from delicious food to ample entertainment, if you find yourself in Texas, don't miss Waco.
Arkansas wasn't on my radar for a must visit place in the United States. As a matter of fact, we only went there because a family reunion in Texas was scheduled and I was going to have to drive from Florida to Waco, Texas with my two toddlers by myself. My choice was I-10 for 600 miles or take a scenic route over several days, so I chose to see some new places. Arkansas was so family friendly I am trying to get Jimmy to go back with us! Perfect for kids, toddlers, babies & adults!!
Asheville was everything we hoped for. The setting in the Blue Ridge Mountains is fantastic, the hiking and outdoor actives are endless, the food is to die for, and the breweries leave nothing to be desired. There is truly something for every age group in this beautiful city. Whether you're heading there for a long weekend or a mid-roadtrip stopover, you won't be disappointed.
New Orleans is often thought of as a party city, but what many don't know is that it is a very family friendly city. From an incredible zoo, to delicious food & entertainment, to fun public transportation. The Cresent City has so much to offer and needs to be in the top of the list for family travel locations!
