How this started…
On summer days, weekends, days off school, etc., I like to take my kids on “adventures.” Sometimes they’re close to home, and sometimes they become day trips, weekends, or even a vacation. Sometimes we go to only one place in a day, and sometimes we piggy-back multiple places. Sometimes my husband comes along, but often the kids and I get out and have fun while he’s left behind to work.
People often think I’m crazy to go to museums and other locations with four young children (ages 7, 5, 4, and 2) in tow. But I’ve found that it’s fun to go out with them, and they enjoy our outings enough to behave well while we’re out and about.
As our list of museums grew, it occurred to me that perhaps I could help others, especially those traveling with children, to learn from our experiences which places are child-friendly and how to have fun on a low budget.
I hope this will be of interest to a wide variety of people, and especially helpful for parents who like to take their children to fun places, but don’t know quite where to go, how to do it, or how to save money along the way.
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think, and come back and visit often. Thanks for taking a look!
