Consider your child’s age when picking a destination Jamie Pearson, mom and blogger, recently examined the best types of trips families based on how old their kids are. Do you have kids of grade school age? Jamie advises:
“This is the golden era of family travel. Your kids can keep up with an adult itinerary, and they still like you! Go on an epic road trip. With enough DVDs and children’s audio books, even great distances are possible.
Consider: National Parks like Yellowstone, the Florida Everglades, Yosemite, or the Grand Canyon.
Avoid: Hotels without swimming pools.
Remember:Two bedrooms are better than one. Just because your 8-year-old can keep going until 10pm doesn’t mean she should.
