Choosing the right destination can make or break your family trip. When choosing your next destination, consider your children’s needs, but don’t forget your needs. Try to mix between kids’ activities and places that will interest the adults in the group. Most destinations have some form of an amusement park or family-friendly attraction, so when you make your shortlist, look for destinations that have some adult fun for you, too.

Do you still travel with a stroller? If so, consider destinations with proper streets and sidewalks, as it will be easier to get around than trying to navigate jungles and more obscure places.

One more thing to remember is that young kids get tired after a long travel day, so it might be a good idea to plan for a “start” trip, where you sleep in a central location, allowing you to take a short drive to different places and make it back to the room early enough to rest for the next day.

It might also be a good idea to pick a location that offers direct flights. Long travel time is not a wise choice with the little ones.
