There are two things that every parent needs to know about traveling with kids: It’s always worth it, and it never feels that way in the planning. So much of the focus devoted to planning a vacation is put on the least pleasant parts of the trip — planes, airports, costs. But we are here to remind you that the second you’re out your door, the trip takes on a joyous life all its own. There are new adventures, gentle challenges, and the incomparably rewarding experience of acclimating together to life in a new place. Family travel pushes us to explore and to find comfortable new rhythms as a family. Because helping kids feel at home in a new and unfamiliar place is really about helping them feel at home in the big wide world. Now, get going!
