Have Kids, Will Travel?

We didn't travel with our children a lot but we did take several outstanding vacations that they remember quite vividly. Of course they remember Disney World but the trips to the Smokey Mountains, the North Carolina coast, and Washington, D.C. are also mentioned when we are together reminiscing. We didn't fly often. There were five kids and even back then it was too expensive. Today, I see more and more families traveling with young children and I applaud their sense of adventure in this day and age of airport security lines.

The internet has brought a whole new slant to travel planning in recent years as more and more blogs and sites make themselves available for looking ahead on what to expect at hotels, parks, cruise ships, etc. In surfing around, I found two that are specifically aimed at families traveling together. TravelSavvyMom and Minitime. They feature reviews on kid-friendly places and give lots of tips on traveling with kids of all ages. If you're planning to travel and toting the little ones along, you might want to check them out.

Thinking about traveling with kids: I've been hearing talk about doing away with lap children on airplanes. I don't know if it's actually going away or if it's just being considered. I can see that with turbulence they would be safer in a car seat, but I really think they will end up in someone's arms at some point no matter what, since crying babies on airplanes are pretty intolerable!
