Wonderful family hotel in Cody, Wyo

Flag review

The hotel is an old motor lodge (outside doors) that has been wonderfully renovated. The rooms were great, as was the service. We even saw deer walk through during the early morning hours. Breakfast is included (a fresh pancake maker, breakfast sandwich fixings, yougurt, cereal and more). And a great location in town.

Tips for Families

There's a playground, indoor pool, huge hot tub, and outdoor pool. As well as coin operated laundry onsite.

Space, the final frontier!

Flag review

You can spend all day here! We arrived right at opening (and had bought our tickets online already) and stayed till closing. The Flight Simulator was fun (not scary at all, though our tween backed out at the last minute to hang out with his too short cousin -- they got cool coins and watched us from the "flight room"). The bus tour is a bit long but has several stops along the way to get out and walk around -- then you just catch the next bus. The Saturn V Center was amazing. There were exhibits to see, rocket scientists to meet and a huge rocket to see. Kids were amazed (and so were the adults). Encourage your kids to look for animals during the bus tour portion -- we saw alligator, tortoise, eagle nests and more.

Tips for Families

We visited on a Saturday in February and had fabulous weather and no crowds! Prepay your tickets online to avoid lines.

A great history experience!

Flag review

We spent a great day in Philly touring Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Get your tickets prior to arrival (and not wait in line for getting them) by reserving them online. For $1.50 service fee per ticket I was able to not stand in line and get 9 tickets to tour Independence Hall at a certain time -- well worth the price!! Also, pick up Jr Ranger books at the Visitor Center for your kids to do -- it gave them activities to do while we did wait in a short line for the Liberty Bell and for our Independ. Hall tour. Also, ask the Rangers about their trading card program. My kids collected 30 trading cards during their 4 hour visit.

Tips for Families

Let kids participate in the militia training -- lots of fun. Also, visit the Treasury Building to tour the portraits. Rangers in there have some great scavenger hunts to do and more trading cards.

Great hike in the woods and fascinating history.

Flag review

On recommendation of a family member the kids and I trekked out to King's Mountain HMP (outside of Charlotte -- about 45 min). We happened to get there just in time to take a guided Ranger hike which was wonderful. The kids did the Jr Ranger books as we walked and we learned about the Revolutionary War and how this battle turned the tide for the Americans. It was a great hike and a wonderful couple of hours spent.

Tips for Families

The hike is stroller friendly -- all paved. Don't miss the movie and the museum.

Solomons, MD - a great family weekend

Flag review

We had a great family weekend on a trip to Solomons, MD. We started on Friday morning driving to Calvert Cliffs State Park. Ate lunch and then hiked the almost 2 miles down to the beach area to search for shark teeth. The walk was easy and the kids spotted snakes, snails and lots of birds. We even saw a sea snake come up from the water and slither across the sand and into the marsh behind. Found 1 tiny shark tooth but kids loved sifting sand. We then headed to the Holiday Inn in Solomons, MD -- nice pool, great location. Saturday was spent at Annemarie Gardens participating in the Father's Day Fling (families build a wooden catapult and use it to make splatter art). Kids LOVED it! We toured the gardens afterwards and checked out their Antique Car show. Sunday was spent at the Calvert Marine Museum touring a lighthouse, a great kids room, and seeing the otters.

Tips for Families

We stopped at the Giant grocery for Panini sandwiches and drinks to picnic while at Calvert Cliffs. Definitely take a small cooler with you on the hike. We had dinner at the Ruddy Duck which was great and we also ate dinner at Boomerangs BBQ.

Charlotte is a great family trip! So much to do.

Flag review

My family recently lived in Charlotte for 6 weeks and found many great things for families & kids to do... Hyatt House Uptown is a fabulous hotel that our family loved. It was walkable to many activities and the staff is fabulous. Discovery Place was a weekly visit but other great things were the Charlotte Nature Center, The US National Whitewater Center, Latta Plantation, Latta Raptor Center, the Mint Museum, the Bechtel Museum of Art, Metrolina flea market, Sky high Sports center (awesome trampoline place), the James Polk Presidential Birthplace, and King's Mountain National Historical Park.

Tips for Families

So much to do and such a manageable city size.

Always a fun tourist stop.

Flag review

This is an open air marketplace in the heart of downtown (Meeting and East Bay St). I've been visiting it for 40 years and while it no longer has fresh fruit/veg (have to visit the Charleston Farmer's Market at Marion Square on Sat for that), it does have tons of tourist items, fresh lemonade and shopping all around. Fun place to walk through (about 3-4 blocks long) and has additional food/shopping on the streets on each side of it.

Tips for Families

Prices can be high here and there's also tons of junk but it's still fun. You can get fresh praline samples, gelato and candy per the pound at Savannah Candy Kitchen (Market St & East Bay St). Benne wafers are the local specialty cookie and found in the market.

Hot in February!

Flag review

My 6 yr old was only interested in the iguanas that roam the ruins. The weather was very hot (about 90 degrees F) in early Feb. We wish we would have roamed the ruins on our own rather than being restricted to listening to our guide (though he was very knowledgeable) -- our Kindle app had photos and lots of info on it about the ruins that we could have self-guided. The ruins are impressive and the beach area (crowded) was beautiful.

Tips for Families

Grab an umbrella to shield from the sun. There is a shopping area nearby that you have to walk past upon exiting -- we grabbed cold drinks there and used a clean bathroom. There is a bit of a walk from the parking/shopping area to the actual ruin site (maybe 1/2 mile -- 10 min) or you can pay to take a tram.

A challenging family excursion but tons of fun!

Flag review

This is a great, fun, outdoor activity for the family. While I thought the water was pretty fast running in spots everyone is connected by hand holding into a human chain that the guide leads up the waterfall. You start at beach level and head up. There is a marketplace that you must walk through to exit but we were hurrying to meet our tour bus driver and didn't stop -- very glad for that. Not sure I would do this with kids under 6 though. They highly encourage watershoes for this but husband and I wore sneakers.

Tips for Families

don't take a camera -- they won't let you carry it. Our guide ended up carrying ours and about 15 others during our walk. You will get wet.

Still a great place for kids!

Flag review

We have been visiting the Children's Museum of the Lowcountry since my now 6 yr old was a newborn. It is a great museum for kids! Everything is hands on for kids but it's size is not overwhelming for parents (or kids). The museum is in an old cotton warehouse right between the Charleston Visitor's Center on Meeting St and shopping on King St - so it's 1 room wide and long. It has a pirate room, water room, art room, fabulous Middle Ages Knight/Castle room, a baby/tot area, and mini grocery store. It's a great stop for kids to just run around after shopping/museum hopping.

Tips for Families

I like to park in the parking garage by the Visitor Center (off Meeting St). They sell inexpensive snacks/drinks in the lobby that you can eat outside or in the lobby picnic area. Cupcake on King St is a great post museum treat. Basil on King St is super yummy - my kids LOVE the Chicken Coconut soup.
