We have always travelled with our kids and are pretty good at finding ways to fit our needs with what an accommodation or adventure offers. Still, we know the lure of family-friendly amenities and for parents nervous about travelling with kids, a good round-up of family-friendly travel experiences was in order. Some of these picks offer more ease to the travel experience – like camps to keep kids busy (so you can steal some adult time) and apartment-like accommodations for convenience. Other picks are fun ways to experience the world with your family, and give your kids a unique learning experience (and appreciation for what they have to give others).
Here’s a quick round-up of family-friendly travel experiences:
Give your kids their own vacation experience with Kids Camp at Beaches Resort locations. This is an opportunity for bigs and littles to explore fun activities, while their parents enjoy some time on their own. Kids Camp has programs for each age group – from infants to teens.
At Great Wolf Lodge, with locations throughout the United States and one location in Canada (Niagara Falls), you can stay where you play. The resort offers an indoor waterpark experience, arcade and kids’ spa plus other extra experiences for families.
Parents of young kids, in particular, will appreciate the accommodations offered at House Hyatt – one and two bedroom suites come with kitchens so you can have the comforts and convenience of home. The opportunity to prepare your own food can also be a great cost-saver, or preferred by families with dietary considerations.
A travel experience with social consciousness – the family travel experiences offered by Me to We will teach kids about the value of giving back. It is also a great way to work together as a family, learn strategies for co-operation and experience new cultures.
Are you looking for ways to let your kids roam free? Give them the opportunity to get back in touch with nature with this unique travel company – Natural Retreats. They offer vacation getaways around the world in pristine natural settings.
Festivals and carnivals offer exciting reasons to travel and great family travel experiences. Carnaval in Quebec is one of our favourite annual events. It takes place in beautiful Quebec City and offers loads of things for families to do. It really is a unique family travel experience.
