When deciding on a vacation we came up with a list of must haves that definitely changed since we had Jax. Before it was more along the lines of cheap, boozey. Today, it goes something like this:
1. All-inclusive - I don't have the money I used to to go out to eat for every meal. Child care is expensive - can I get an amen?
2. Baby/Toddler Activities - this was hard. Not too many places cater to those with little ones, but I wanted a place that would keep Jax engaged. Kyle and I wanted it to be a vacation for him too.
3. Babysitting Services - we wanted the option to be able to go to dinner or out on an excursion solo.
Here are the links I found the most helpful in our vacation planning. Enjoy!
Beaches Resorts - I went there for a wedding and it was incredibly child friendly (this was our final choice - Beaches Jamaica!)
Travel and Leisure - They made a list of the top family-friendly resorts. Number 10 was a close second!
Family Friendly Child Network - This is where my search started. It helped inspire my must-have list.
Have you taken your toddler on vacation? Where did you go?
