Here are the top places …

My ideal museum visit is an amazing learning experience for both my kids and me.

By Nevin Thompson

Returning home from Canada after a decade overseas, my active, outdoorsy family had to choose a place to live.  We wanted a place with no snow in the winter (yes, in Canada) and no rain in the summer and on the Pacific coast no less. The answer was Victoria, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, just north of Washington State’s majestic Olympic Mountains. It has pretty much the …

By Mary Curry

My kids, 5 and 7 declared the Galapagos Islands were “better than heaven probably” and “the best place ever. I’ve taken them to nearly a dozen countries and have done some downright crazy things to try and relive my backpacking days post-kids. For example, traveling alone across Europe, 8 months pregnant, with a 20-month-old. I know, what was I thinking?

So relatively speaking, the Galapagos vacation was easy. I’ve never had so …

Bermuda is a terrifically easy to place to relax with kids (yes, I said the elusive “R” word). scenic beaches, pretty gardens, great seafood and gentle weather help.
