What have been your easiest travels with little kids?

My daughter is 23 months old and she's been on a handful of trips. I'll admit though, it was easier before she could walk. We went to visit family in Europe for 2 weeks when she was 10 months old and since she wasn't running around yet, she was much easier to manage....now she runs around like wild everywhere we go lol.

We've done plenty of travel with my now nineteen month old and have so far done one car trip with both our big guy and new baby born in April - our first flight with both will be in just a few weeks.  For the most part, anywhere will have kid friendly activities, but we tend to gravitate towards beach vacations and/or places that are very walkable and have lots of outdoor dining options.  We are in NY, so we've done well with car trips to the Hamptons and flights to Florida (some of our favorite areas there are Clearwater and St. Augustine) - drives or flights to those areas are a quick 2-3 hours for us and as long as you stay in town and/or on the beach you don't have the added stress of packing for the whole day every time you want to go do something!

My son has flown twice (at 2 years) and we've been on a variety of road trips. Most recently, we went to Disney. I had in my mind that it was going to be a perfect easy day with him, but he was a wild man and wanted to run everywhere.

Road trips are always good, you can stop and go as needed if you don't have a set schedule. When I've flown with my toddler and baby on a plane, I literally hold my breathe the whole time and hope I don't have the loudest kid on board lol

I made sure to schedule my son's nap for the flight, that way he would sleep on the plane. Also, I had snacks in my carry-on and little toys.

I have found the best ages for travel are under 2 months (they sleep most of the way!) or over 3.  Try to pack lots of snacks and new toys.

Try to get as much plane travel out of the way with before they turn 2!  The plane tickets are free!  After they're two, vacations become a heck of a lot more expensive!!

We were mentally unable to wrap our minds around travelling with 2 year olds so we didn't take advantage of the free plane tickets. We do a lot of road trips and the name of the game is basically cool snacks, new dvds and new little toys in the van.

My husband drives and I sit in the back with my son and keep him entertained - this helps a lot on longer car rides. We also learned early on that it was worth it to make room in the car and bring his pac-n-play to sleep in at a hotel - we were presented with icky, sticky, stained, and flimsy hotel cribs one too many times - plus he sleeps better in something he is familiar with!
