4 Great Vacations for Parents With Young Children

Parents with young kids need vacations more than almost anyone else. They have lots of tasks to take care of at home and at work, and taking a break can help reduce stress and improve their connections with each other and their children. Here are some great vacation ideas for new parents.

1. Explore a New City

When you and your family members explore a new city, you can stay close to all the comforts of home. Look for a hotel with child care options, strollers, high chairs, and other amenities you might need. You can also ask to stay with a friend or relative who lives nearby. Museums, government buildings, holy sites, grand libraries, sports complexes, expansive and accessible parks, shopping, and many more child-friendly attractions are available in places such as Phoenix, Charleston, and Dallas. You'll never run out of entertaining activities in a big city.

2. Take a Cruise

If traveling around a city and planning which attractions you want to see doesn't seem appealing to you, consider taking a cruise. An Alaskan cruise is great for families and includes visits to small towns, amazing landscapes, and beautiful wildlife. Your family will remember the spectacular sights for the rest of their lives. You can take a seven-day round trip from Seattle or Vancouver. Common stops include the Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve, Denali National Park & Preserve, and the Last Chance Mining Museum and Memorial Park in Juneau.

Alaska's long summer days are ideal for seeing all the interesting sights on these cruises. High chairs, booster seats, and cribs are available free of charge, and child care is available for children aged three and up. If your child is younger, you can bring a nanny along. You can also vacation with extended family members such as grandparents. That way, everyone can enjoy some time alone and spend some quality time with family when it's their turn to stay with the little one.

3. A Beach Vacation

Whether you head to an island, the coast, or the shore of the right kind of lake, a peaceful beach vacation is an ideal way to take some time off with your family. Young children love playing in the sand, and you and your spouse can kick back, relax, and take in the food, drink, and sun. There are a huge number of beaches to choose from, and you can spend your time deep sea fishing, checking out an amusement park, or just relaxing.

Consider a location with fewer crowds, like Ruby Beach at Olympic National Park in Washington. You can also reserve your own cabin or cabana at a beach resort.

4. A Trip to the Woods

Contrary to popular opinion, you don't need to rough it to go on a trip to the woods. There are plenty of secluded bed and breakfasts available near forests, lakes, and rivers throughout North America. Search booking.com, Vrbo or Airbnb for the right property for you. You can enjoy beautiful, natural scenery while also enjoying room service, Wi-Fi, a comfortable bed, delicious meals, and all the help and supplies you need for your baby or toddler.

These ideas should put you on the path to an excellent vacation, including your youngest family members. Taking a break is a great way to recharge and lower your stress levels.
