Traveling to Fort Myers & Naples with a Toddler

Visiting Fort Myers with a Toddler

My husband and I went on six trips in our first year of marriage. Traveling has always been something we both really enjoy. We enjoy seeing new places, experiencing new things, trying new foods etc. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, obviously our travels came to an abrupt halt. I found out I was pregnant in September of 2020, and had my son in May of 2021. We were both SO nervous to travel after that.

Our 2 year old daughter loves zoo animals – she would visit the zoo every day if she had a chance. When we were researching things to do in San Diego with a toddler and a baby, it was a no-brainer to add the San Diego Zoo and the Safari Park to our itinerary. We were excited to take her to a world-famous zoo which features many exotic animals that aren’t found in our local zoo, especially the pandas, polar bears, koalas and orangutans.

We loved visiting the San Diego Zoo with our toddler so much, we also decided to visit the Safari Park too. In this post, we’ll share all the ways to make the most out of your visit to the San Diego Zoo with a toddler (and the Safari Park too!). At the bottom, we’ll compare the two parks to help you decide which park you should visit with your kids – the San Diego Zoo or Safari Park – or both!

European Road Trip with a Baby or Toddler

As people flocked back to Europe in the summer of 2022, we saw the price of flights continue to rise.

We had two weeks to fill and a European road trip with a baby seemed like the perfect solution!

Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park with a Baby

When we decided to have a baby, we also decided that we would not stop doing the things we love. For us that includes traveling and hiking. We knew that traveling and hiking with a baby would be a little different, and that’s ok; we’ve quickly learned to embrace life and travel at a slower pace. (Literally- when you are carrying a 13 lb baby on your chest, you’re forced to slow down a bit!). So, our first time traveling with a baby was an Acadia National Park family vacation.
