It seems that many of us travel less as our family grows. I get it. I’m guilty, too. Traveling is a lot harder when it means suitcases have gone from one or two to half a dozen or more now. The quantity of luggage handles have quadrupled, but your number of arms and hands to carry it all with has stayed the same.
However, kids should are the best reason to travel. Exposing your kids to different scenery and cultures can be among the most enlightening and fun experiences that they’ll have in life. Even if you’re sticking states-side, there’s endless beauty to be seen. Here are a few beautiful destinations that offer diversity in scenery but the affordability of non-international flights.
