Having a successful caravan trip with young kids comes down to planning, every, single, time. Your planning and the kids involvement should begin well before you set off on the road. While planning your itinerary get the kids involved. Ask them what kinds of things they’d like to see and do and plan in accordance.

Tis the season to enjoy a vacation with the family. Let’s face it, we all can use a little bit of relaxation and fun in the sun. But traveling with children, especially with little ones under 5 can be hectic at times, particularly on long flights. From being tired, lack of room to move, or pure boredom, these flights can be tumultuous. So which airlines cater more to families? Well look no further! Based on my personal experience and searching the web, I have compiled a list of the top…Continue

I love to travel and being a filmmaker has given me all kinds or reasons to go many places. But as my family grew I got tired of long hours in airplane seats and nights alone in hotel rooms. Then, a few years ago I had a flash of inspiration (some might say insanity, but I’m sticking with inspiration). I decided to parlay a project in Germany into a summer adventure for my family of six.
It turned out to be a memorable vacation and taught me a very important lesson: Big…Continue

The Indianapolis Children's Museum is the world's largest museum of its kind and a definite must-see attraction if you have kids. My kids loved everything about it and would like to go back as often as possible. Between the excellent dinosaur exhibit, train displays, indoor carousel and playhouse, National Geographic Treasures of the Earth exhibits, dedicated toddler/preschooler area, and plenty of hands-on science stations, the kids will enjoy hours of educational entertainment. There are…Continue

I have visited Chicago at least a dozen times over the years. Some trips were for business, some for a girls' only weekend, a few have been a one-day up and back Chicago day trip and, of course, the family…Continue
