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.
The annual summer vacation is something my parents gifted to my sister and I growing up. Now that I have a family of my own, I am excited to share the joy of travel with my daughter Annika.
I recently discovered that there is a word, solivagant, which means someone who wanders alone.
In 2015, two solivagants married. My husband and I met via a global travel community and bonded over our love of wandering. When our son was born in 2017, we promised to travel with our baby and to show him the world.
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 we’ve quickly learned to embrace life and travel at a slower pace. (Literally- when you are carrying a 13lb baby on your chest, you’re forced to slow down a bit!)

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.
Many of the world’s greatest cities have a way to get up high and see the city from an entirely new perspective and NYC is no exception. Two popular observation decks in Manhattan are the Empire State Building (of course) and the Top of the Rock (Rockefeller Center). It’s worth a visit to one of them during a family trip to NYC.
The first thing we do when we start looking into a destination is to take a look at the types of activities available to ensure there is enough to interest us for a week. We want our travel activities to be well-rounded to accommodate everyone in our family, balancing activities for the adults and the kids. Lucky for our kids, our preferred choice of activity is being active outside, so that usually ends up being pretty kid friendly too.
When you think of Phoenix, Arizona, visions of cactus and desolate desert might pop into your head. But whether you’re looking for a warm winter family getaway or on your way to visit snowbird grandparents, you will be pleasantly surprised to find a fantastic family friendly destination.
When we traveled prior to having kids, our attitude about our hotel was much more relaxed. We knew we would be spending very little time there and there was much less to consider. Now that we are traveling with young kids, we do a lot more pre-planning before booking our accommodations.
It can be difficult to choose a destination when travelling with a baby and a toddler. At the time of our trip to San Diego, our daughter was just over 2.5 years old and our little guy was 9 months old.
