Saturday, April 30, 2016

It can be tough taking your whole family to Vegas, as planning a completely kid-friendly time seems complicated. The city went through a very small period of being family-friendly, but those days are definitely gone. I love heading to Vegas for a girls’ weekend or to get away with my husband, but occasionally it’s nice to head to warmer weather with the kids too.

Kids notoriously get excited about seemingly small things. While traveling all I hear most days are the phrases, “mom, I want that!” or, “mom can we do that?!” While it can be tempting to give in to their requests since you’re in vacation mindset, there are some things you know will affect them in a profound way.

New York City isn’t exactly what I would consider kid friendly, but it still has a lot to offer the young ones. From huge parks to amazingly tall buildings, kids are sure to be captivated by this impressive city.

Arnold Meadowmont Lodge Review

I am not a huge camper, but I do believe when you stay in the mountains that the more it feels like a cabin or has a mountain feel the better. I enjoy soaking in the mountain air in a place that feels like it belongs in the mountains. So when we recently stayed at The Arnold Meadowmont Lodge, it was perfect!

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food and ways of life.

We love watching them learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world for the first time and made memories that will last a lifetime.
