Where to go on baby's first vacation (besides Disney)

Jump to last reply

My son is 2 months old and I want to take our first family vacation later this year. I've considered over Christmas which would make him just over a year, but we could also go in the late spring, when he'd be about 6 months.

DH is extremely reluctant to take him anywhere because of the hassle of traveling with all his gear, what if he screams on the plane, would we have any fun having to worry about a baby while sighsteeing, etc. etc. I really have to do some convincing that a vacation is possible that doesn't involve a theme park or the Jersey Shore. Before baby, we typically vacationed in Europe or in Asia.

We aren't beach people or cruisers, so Caribbean/Mexico/all inclusive resorts don't appeal to us. We both enjoy history, museums, parks, shopping, trying new restaurants (although with baby, that obviously hasn't happened much lately). Our favorite city is London and I would like to go back, but since we were just there I'd rather try somewhere new.

I'm open to going anywhere as long as the flight is around 7 hours or less - we live in Philadelphia. Anything longer might be pushing it with such a young child and ideally, we'd get him to sleep on an overnight flight (which I'm sure wont happen, but I can dream).

Any ideas? TIA.
