I travel for the Kids

This Is Where Locavore Was Born

ITHACA, NY – It's described as "centrally isolated" and "ten square miles surrounded by reality," as well as the slogan most widely seen on T-shirts and bumper stickers: Ithaca is GORGES.

The Real New York Underground

HOWES CAVE, New York – The place is amazing, 156 feet below the surface of the earth with stalagmites, stalactites, and an infinity of other crazy formations.

What Kind of Family Reunion Are You?

It can be all happy memories and s'mores by the fire if you remember to pick the right trip for your family. So we designed a few trips for every kind of family. Even yours.

Take Me Out to the Cooperstown

COOPERSTOWN, New York – We dropped in to check out the National Baseball Hall of Fame and were astounded, not by the Hall so much, but by the town. 

Hey Kids, Let's Go to LA

LOS ANGELES – Pizzas, tar pits, movie stars, boardwalks, Greek relics, swimming pools, 1950s soda fountains. L.A. just may be the city of dreams for kids. Not bad for parents, either.

Ten Best London Family Hotels

LONDON – We found the ten best parent- and kid-approved hotels throughout London. Zoos, kid concierges, nannies, kites, parks — everything but Mary Poppins.

Three Days in London with the Kids

LONDON – Everyone is going to London in 2012. No wonder: A short family trip packs in fish and chips and pirate ships, dungeons and Legos, gardens and pools.

Family Heaven. With Sand and Tacos.

TULUM, Mexico – After a bumpy drive down a dirt road, a motorboat took us through nine different ecosystems. (Amazing!) Pristine, untouched, and beautiful nature at its best. 

The Art of the Family Vacation

PALM SPRINGS – They created spin art on vintage vinyl, felted tiny rocks, and painted T-shirts while screaming (with joy, I think) for hours.
