Road Trips with Young Children

Tips for Successful Trips with Young Children 
There is a window of traveling opportunity when you're a parent of young children, and unfortunately, it's a small one! But there are certain things you can do to make your travels smoother with little ones. 

  • Leave at a time that corresponds with the kids' naps. A sleepy traveler is a quiet traveler! 
  • Plan ahead and book hotels that offer kid-friendly amenities like snack bars or craft sessions. Many accommodations include plenty of fun and free things to keep the kiddos busy. 
  • If necessary, bring help. Not many of us can afford a nanny, but an older cousin or even Grandma could lend extra hands when needed! 
  • Cash in those reward points on your credit card. Points can be applied to things like airfare, discounted hotel stays, even meals. Contact your credit card company if you have questions about using your reward points. 
  • Structure is the name of the game. It may seem counterproductive to plan your vacation when all you really want is some free time, but keeping some semblance of the kids' routines is key.  It let's them know what to expect ("Water park tomorrow, kids!), helps keep them calm, and they'll inevitably sleep better. 
  • When tensions are running high, laugh! A sense of humor can diffuse the toughest of situations, and if you're laughing, your little ones probably are, too!
