20 Reasons You Should Travel With Your Kids

My parents helped me and my siblings adjust to travel at a nice young age, and it resulted in all of us becoming lifelong travelers in some form or another. This is why you should convert your offspring–while they’re still young!

Everything Is an Adventure

Whether it’s climbing boulders in the Appalachians, hiking to a waterfall in Hawaii, going to an IMAX at Niagara Falls, or simply taking a shortcut through the woods at Yorktown–everything is an adventure when you’re a kid. As a boring adult, it can be fun to remember how to enjoy the discovery.

Start ’Em Young

My mom’s side of the family lives in CA, which meant that many of my childhood memories involve trips across the country. This meant that my siblings and I were all fairly good travel experts by the time we were seven years old. When road trips up and down the East Coast started, we mastered the art of the car ride as well. I still use some of the coping skills from that time when I travel today!

If you start ’em young, they’ll be better adjusted to the strains and boredom of travel.

Memories That Form Their Lives

Some of my most precious memories come from those childhood trips. It’s the same with basically anyone you talk to — experiences during vacations or travel have a huge influence on our lives. Sometimes these trips result in valuable time together, sometimes they result in a lifelong career dream. Either way, traveling with your kids opens them to awesome opportunities and experiences.
