Before having kids, traveling was a piece of cake. You could book a last-minute flight, zip off to an unknown destination, take a quick break, relax and discover a new city. It didn’t really matter where you stayed, where you ate, how long it took to get there, etc. But now, all those logistics must be considered and the itinerary planned. It seems the easiest thing to do is head to a city you already know, or visit friends who can show you around, or get recommendations from a friend who has been before. Which is why (drum roll please) we’re so excited about this new Weekend Getaways feature…
We will be continually featuring different travel destinations from around the world, offering a mini Weekend guide for what to do and where to go, all written by a local parent or a frequent traveler to the city — an expert with tips to share. It will make discovering new cities all the more do-able to have a reliable list of things to do/see with your kids.
After all, traveling with kids is a lot of fun, especially if you know where to go. We hope our tips inspire you.
