Kid Friendly Travel Destinations for the Summer

Now that you’ve got the basics on how to travel with your little one and what to pack for them, it’s time to decide where you want to go for vacation! We’ve spoken to a bunch of our mama friends to compile a list of travel destinations that will keep you and baby happy this summer.

Where: Denver, Colorado.

  • If you’re an outside junkie, check out the: Botanical Gardens, Red Rocks, and Estes Park. You’ll also be able to find great hiking spots outside of the city, so be sure to bring your baby carrier in order to wear your little one for whichever adventure you go on.
  • If you’re in search of a good meal or a relaxing day, downtown Denver is the spot to be!  

Where: New York City, New York

NYC can easily become your playground! Be sure to bring a baby carrier with you for your trip. With all the walking you’ll be doing, baby in the carrier will be the easiest way to get around town and explore together as a family!

Where: Charleston, South Carolina

Known for its Southern charm, Charleston is the perfect spot for great food and wonderful shopping.

Be warned: It can become extremely hot and humid during the middle of summer, so if you’re able to go during late spring or late summer, we’d advise going then!

Where: Dallas, Texas

From adventure parks for the big kids to the Dallas Zoo for the littles, there are plenty of options that will keep your kids happy! You’ll probably want to pack a stroller for your little one since you’ll most likely be using a car to get to places!

Where: Port Angeles, Washington

If you’re the outdoorsy type of family, be sure to check out the Olympic National Park! This sprawling and gorgeous park covers multiple ecosystems and is the perfect outdoor spot to bring the family for a day out.

If you’re on the hunt for a wonderful all-inclusive resort that can accommodate your little ones, we suggest taking a look at The Tyler Place Family Resort in Lake Champlain, VT and the Four Seasons Resort in Scottsdale, AZ. A chance for you and your little ones to feel taken care of is a win-win in our books.


If you’re in the mood for a beach getaway, here are a few of the ones we suggest! Be sure to check them out and then let us know what you thought of them!

  • Isle of Palms, SC
  • Kiawah, SC
  • Hilton Head, SC
