We parents often crave vacations without the kids but kids need vacations too. They need to see and experience new things and break their routines. Here are a few great trips for kids...
Nickelodeon Suites Resort in Orlando, Florida - Yes, there is more in Orlando than Disney and Sea World. This is a great resort for tots, tweens, and teens. Complete with waterpark (including daily slime time), kids spa, shows and more, your kids will remember this trip for a long time.
Sesame Place in Langhorne, Pennsylvania - You know the kids love Elmo. Listed as one of Forbes Top Amusement Parks in the World, this theme park is awesome for tots and youngsters. At Sesame Place, the kids can dine with their fave characters like Cookie Monster and Abby Cadabby.www.sesameplace.com
Legoland in Carlsbad, California - I am dying to go to this one. Legoland gets great reviews and who doesn't love a trip to California? The Miniland attraction is a display of Lego minature structures. Don't worry...there are waterparks, shows and roller coaster rides too. www.legoland.com

Why limit a kid's getaway to the United States? I met a woman this weekend who takes over son on international tours. It's educational and entertaining. I know you are thinking that is expensive but it depends on where you go. Airlines often run specials to London and Madrid. There is so much to see and learn in Europe. How about South America? Chile and Argentina are rich in culture and architecture. On a tighter budget? How about a train ride to Montreal, Canada? Amtrak runs daily trains from DC and NY to Montreal. Also, consider hopping on Amtrak for a tour of the country. My cousin boarded her family on a train from San Francisco to New York. They loved it. It is a great way to see parts of the country you may not otherwise get a chance to see.
