sorry the baby needed me ...i never finished my post.

we are leaving from New York...I just don't want the baby to spend too much time in a car -I want him to be able to move around as much as possible.

Turks - I am nervous about hurricane season

I've never been to Nova Scotia - I'll need to do more research.

I would like to take the baby on a boat 9not a cruise)

thanks

The baby does not care where you take him/her. Not sure what the deal is about not spending too much time in a car - you also need to be concerned about too much time in a plane - to preserve your sanity and that of those around you.

Evaluate total travel time to each place - California is a 6-7 hour flight, Nova Scotia either a flight or long drive to Bar Harbor and then a ferry ride (does that count as a boat?). I have no idea how long it is to T & C.

Then evaluate lodging conditions in each place - you want a suite or at least a room with refrig and microwave.

Just curious - how did you settle on 3 such totally different destinations?

We stayed at Beaches in Turks & Caicos several years ago. It's the family part of the all-inclusive Sandals chain. My kids were much older and loved it. I hear they do a good job with little ones too, giving you some time to relax if you'd like. It's not inexpensive, though. I don't know what kind of place you're thinking of.
