Traveling with young kids can be exhausting, stressful and, let’s face it, not always fun for the parent. Instead of cultural treats, daytime activities typically involve excursions to the zoo, children’s museums, nearby amusement parks or a trip to the nearest outdoor playground. And traveling light? Forget about it. Even if you are lucky enough to have ditched the diaper bag, chances are there are still sippy cups, snacks, extra clothes and strollers to contend with.
But not all kiddie-related travel is doom and gloom. If you are fortunate enough to be traveling with a kindergartner, you may be surprised by what kind of trip you can actually experience. Sight-seeing trips and historical-themed adventures are within your grasp if you travel prepared.
