If you're still in the planning phases of your next family vacation, you'll want to read our expert advice on how to save money, how to choose a destination, best times of the year for family travel, and what to pack.
Whether you're hitting the road or flying the not-so-friendly skies, the potential hassles are numerous. Unfortunately, we can't lower gas prices, give you more space on the plane, or make your fussy, bored toddler suddenly interested in the scenery. But we can arm you with entertainment ideas, survival strategies, and practical advice to help you plan so getting there really is half the fun.
Before you've got both hands on a carriage, grab your honey for a quick couples escape. Where to? We chose destinations that aren't swimming with kiddos (love 'em, but there's time in for that in your future) and where you'll find plenty of pregnancy-friendly perks, so you'll feel pampered and not the least bit out of place. Step away from the nursery prep and start packing!
The benefits of travel are countless -- breathtaking landscapes, savory flavors, eye-opening experiences, and tightened family bonds, to name a few. As a parent, it's easy to cultivate a passion for travel in your children. Chart your path by starting with these five steps.
