These kid-friendly Airbnbs will make for one epic family vacation!
The landscape of family travel has changed drastically over the last year. Because of Covid-19, many families have had to change, reschedule, or straight up cancel vacation plans. And while it’s all for the greater good, it can still be pretty disappointing.
Traveling as a family is one of the best ways to bond and create lasting memories, and many families are looking for ways to safely travel again as we embark on a new year. Opting for a road trip over a plane ride or a vacation rental over a hotel are just some of the ways families are pivoting to make travel a possibility.
In fact, even pre-pandemic, many families were choosing to stay at Airbnbs and other vacation rentals because they provide amenities that make traveling with kids easier and more enjoyable in many ways — especially for parents. It may seem like a small thing, but the idea of being able to do a load of laundry on vacation rather than five loads afterward is a relief to many parents. Plus, vacation rentals are often more spacious than hotels and include kitchens and living spaces. Many of these rentals are a dream come true for city dwellers accustomed to cramped apartments with little to no outdoor space.
Plus, the best part of renting an Airbnb is that it’s like having a home away from home, and many hosts even offer recommendations for their top family-friendly restaurants, theme parks, playgrounds, and trusted babysitters. Exploring new sights with kids is exhausting, so coming back to comfy quarters at the end of the day can make for a truly pleasurable vacation experience for all.
