Family vacation with toddler - Where to?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a week-long family vacation for myself, my husband, and our 3-year-old little boy. We live in central Mississippi, and we're looking to travel in September of 2010.

Any good ideas? We've been to the Gulf Coast, so maybe something else. We are looking for something relaxing, where there will be things to do but not so many things to do that we feel rushed trying to see everything.

I think he's too young for Disney (though maybe next summer . . . !), so that's out. We were thinking maybe something beachy, or perhaps the Smoky Mountains. It would be good if we could pick someplace that isn't TOO hard to get to/far away from where we live, because I'd rather avoid really long flights or drives if possible.

Ideas? We love being outside, and our toddler enjoys attractions such as science museums, pools, parks, and zoos at home. I enjoy arts, culture, and shopping, and we all love to eat. Hubs is just looking for a chance to unwind.
