20 Reasons You Should Travel With Your Kids
Experience Travel Through a Child’s Eyes
David Almond, a well-known British writer for children, has said, “Every time a child is born, the world is recreated.”
Children have a unique way of seeing and experiencing the world–and when you’re with them, some of that rubs off on you. I love traveling with my nieces because they draw my attention to little, overlooked things–like the tiny mushrooms growing at the base of a redwood tree.
Children’s Museums Are the Best
Children’s museums rock. They’re hands-on, fun, colorful, and easy to understand. Take full advantage of this when your kids are appropriate ages, and use it as an excuse to enjoy the exhibits for yourself.

If you’re traveling with kids, a pool is a must. It’s a great way to burn excess energy, keep the kids excited, and soothe your own muscles and joints. Do you have to have a kid to get a hotel with a pool? No. But you are 99% more likely to actually use the pool if you have a kid bouncing off the walls in pool-joy.
