Our 2.5 year old daughter loves zoo animals – she would visit the zoo every day if she had a chance. It was a no-brainer to add the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park to our itinerary when we were looking for things to do in San Diego with a toddler and a baby. We were excited to take her to see the many San Diego Zoo animals that aren’t found in our local zoo, especially the pandas, polar bears, koalas and orangutans.
There are many fun things to do in Sedona with kids, but without question the kid-friendly hikes in Sedona are the best. Sedona’s dramatic, towering red rocks are so much fun for kids of all ages to explore.

(Literally- when you are carrying a 13lb baby on your chest, you’re forced to slow down a bit!)
My baby boy was about six months old when we took an impromptu trip to Niagara Falls. It was an unplanned trip with an infant, so we expected there to be quite a bit of chaos. Much to our surprise, the trip went off without a hitch and we had an excellent time on our very first family vacation.

Are you wondering where to stay in Sedona with your baby? Over the years we have developed a very reliable system for picking good baby-friendly hotels for our family. To save you time, we have used our system to identify and recommend six baby-friendly Sedona hotels over a variety of price ranges.
Traveling with a baby and toddler means saying good-bye to long, drawn out meals in fancy restaurants. We still want delicious food, but we also want places that allow us to get take-away, provide menu options our kids will enjoy or a fast dining experience.
