San Luis Obispo, California

This product was recommended by Krissy Hadick from thehadicks

San Luis Obispo (SLO) is located on the Central Coast of California. With amazing weather, beautiful beaches, and lots of hiking trails, it is the perfect location to enjoy some outdoor family time. Traveling with a baby can bring on anxiety in even the most travel savvy parents. SLO offers the experience of coastal life without huge crowds that other parts of California have. It’s the perfect setting for a more mellow vacation with your baby.

Acadia, Maine

This product was recommended by Stephanie Mantilla from Plant Prosperous

The Acadia National Park has gorgeous views of the woods meeting the ocean. The park is easy to drive and has many wide trails a stroller can navigate. Other trails are easy to walk with baby in a sling carrier. If you don’t feel like camping, there are many nice bed and breakfasts in the closeby town of Bar Harbor, Maine. This town has easily walkable streets with New England charm. There are ice cream shops, cafes, and restaurants that are baby-friendly. You can even take whale watching excursions with your baby when the waves aren’t too choppy.

Quintana Roo, Mexico

This product was recommended by Harry Anapliotis from Rental Center Crete

Finding a place to travel with a baby can be difficult; working out ideal travel times and finding a destination with a temperature that isn’t too hot is always the main concern, but you also must consider what to do there. This is why I mention Quintana Roo. Its baby-friendly beaches can allow you and your child to bond and the sights alone will make it worth it for you. Being able to take strolls around Cancún with your baby and observe wildlife could be amazing. The resorts can offer babysitting services also, so if you are wanting to take one of the days to see what else the area has to offer knowing your baby is safe, it’s ideal.

Fowey, Cornwall

This product was recommended by Claire Stapleton from Stapo’s thrifty life hacks

Cornwall is a great place to travel to with a baby. There’s some amazing family-friendly accommodation in the area and I personally recommend The Fowey House Hotel. This property have a baby-listening service and a complimentary bottle-washing service. There’s also a crèche, which you can access for two hours each day at no extra cost; you could put your baby in there whilst you take a dip in the hotel’s outdoor jacuzzi. There are lots of family friendly cafes and restaurants in Fowey, but make sure you take a baby carrier with you, as the streets are a little too narrow for a buggy. The Eden Project is only a 30-minute drive from Fowey, so make sure you head there for a day trip. It’s an amazing baby-sensory experience!

Seattle, WA

This product was recommended by Courtney Wilde from Courtney Wilde Photography, LLC

Travelling in Seattle is a gorgeous, baby-friendly vacation! It has the perfect combination of coastal and city vibes. Pike Place Market is the perfect lunch spot, and kids love watching the flying fish! The local vendors there love giving away free fruits and vegetables as samples, so that keeps my baby happy every time we go. After Pike Place, you can take a short ferry ride to West Seattle where Alki Beach is located. My baby loves sitting at the shoreline and letting the gentle waves hit her tiny toes! Seattle is full of more stroller-friendly hidden gems like Golden Gardens Beach, the Washington Arboretum, Discovery Park, the downtown Children’s Museum (located right next to the space needle), Gas Works Park, Snoqualmie Falls, and the Fremont Troll! You won’t run out of easy, beautiful, and fun activities that the whole will enjoy.

Goa

This product was recommended by Sneha Francis from Unstumbled

Goa is an excellent destination to visit with your little one. The state is blessed with some of the most amazing beaches and islands and has a fascinating history that is unrivalled. If you are looking for a destination you can easily visit with your baby, look no further than one of India’s all time favorite destinations. What makes Goa so great to visit with a baby is how comforting the environment is to a baby. It’s not congested or loud or polluted. The less touristy and quieter beaches Patnem and Palolem in South Goa and Ashvem and Mandrem in the north are great for family bonding and to fight and play with the waves with your baby. If you baby is fascinated by wildlife, you could also take them to one of the many wildlife sanctuaries sprinkled across the state that will not only be an enjoyable experience for the baby but even for you. So if a holiday with your baby is on your mind. Goa definitely should be on your shortlist.

St. Joseph, Michigan

This product was recommended by Ryan Youngberg from Baby’s Journey

My family takes an annual trip to southwest Michigan in the fall to visit the incredible beach in St. Joseph, stroll through the downtown area, and go apple picking in surrounding areas. These are all activities we’ve done with our toddler and infant over the years that have made great family memories with little stress. St. Joseph beach is reasonably large, so getting distance between families is typically not an issue. The views of lighthouses and boats off the shores of Lake Michigan are stunning as you get closer to sunset. For families with more than one child, there’s also a park right on the beach for children to play on. Parking is available right next to the beach to make it easy to get out a jogger stroller or carry your beach gear and family down to the water. As a bonus, if you have other family members to watch your little one for a while, there are several great wineries and breweries in the area to enjoy a glass or two. Whether you live by the ocean, a small lake, or one of the Great Lakes, taking your baby to the beach is the perfect way to relieve the stress that comes with parenting an infant.

Backyard Terrors and Dinosaur Park

This product was recommended by Tom Winter from DevSkiller

This little park is a great place to take babies and kids of all ages. It’s full of life-sized dino sculptures that the owner made himself. It’s outside and has plenty of shade to keep littles from getting too much sun. They can go up to the sculptures and touch them, explore all around them, and just have fun. The property owner put a lot of hard work into making it a unique and fun little destination for families, and he’s done a great job. The park is perfect for babies that are 1 year or older and has activities for children up to 13 years old. All the sculptures and statues are all made by hand and they have educational plaques in front of all the dinosaurs with cool bits of information about them, so it’s educational at the same time!

Tuscany, Italy

This product was recommended by Barbara Nevers from NeoLittle

Babies are very welcome in this country. You’d be surprised at how Italians go out of their way to help parents with babies. Italy has a lot of beautiful small towns which have a lot of family-friendly accommodations which lets you enjoy the scenery and not worry about taking care of your baby.

Japan

This product was recommended by Barbara Nevers from NeoLittle

If you’re looking for a travel destination that’s baby-friendly, Japan is the place for you. Japan has lots of baby cafes located around Tokyo where you can dine with your baby. And remember that Japan is the cleanest country in Asia so surely your baby will be safe from germs.

London, England

This product was recommended by Barbara Nevers from NeoLittle

You can easily navigate the city with a baby stroller. And it’s got a lot of places where changing facilities are readily available for your baby. It’s even friendly to mothers who breastfeed their children. Plus you can bring your baby to a baby disco, the zoo and there’s a lot of public parks where you can take your baby to.

Yellowstone National Park

This product was recommended by Melanie Musson from ExpertInsuranceReviews

The sites can be enjoyed by even the youngest travelers and the wonder of Yellowstone is outdoors, so there’s no need to worry about a baby fussing or making noise. The boardwalks surrounding several of the geyser basins make pushing a stroller easy, and if you hike off the boardwalks onto the dirt trails, you can use a baby carrier

Lahaina, Maui

This product was recommended by David Lewis from Kitchen Ambition

Maui’s west coast is a beautiful stay for families to travel with a baby. Baby beach in Lahaina is protected by an exposed reef which creates a calm shallow area for young children to play. For active parents, surfable beaches aren’t far, but you won’t find big waves here. There are an incredible amount of beachside accommodations to suit a family. You can book a condo on VRBO for easy at-home cooking, living space for the baby to crawl around in, and an extra bedroom to serve as a nursery. In contrast, Front Street resort accommodations will place you within steps of the pool, beach, food and luaus, but you may have smaller living quarters. In Lahaina, there is food, fun and plenty of sun. Healthcare and nanny services are nearby too. You’ll find an abundance of day trips available, but few are so far away that they can’t be squeezed in between naps.. Take a helicopter tour, or visit the nearby aquarium. Definitely eat dinner at The Plantation House. If you’re looking for a full-day adventure, rent a Jeep and take the Road to Hana.

Buellton, CA

This product was recommended by Jen Ortega from Discover Buellton

Buellton, located in the heart of Santa Ynez Wine Country, is a great place to travel with a baby for a wine country getaway as there are lodging options that cater to families. If you like camping or prefer to go glamping, Flying Flags RV Resort has accommodations like cottages and cabins that have kitchens for families to use, as well as extra privacy with private patios. During the day guests can enjoy two swimming pools, bocce ball, horseshoes, a sports field and playground. If you’d like to go the route of a traditional hotel, Hampton Inn & Suites Buellton also has large suites with kitchens and if you don’t feel like cooking, daily breakfast is provided. Enjoy the hotel’s pool during the day and at night, sit under the stars and roast s’mores over the various fire pits available while drinking hot chocolate. The adults can enjoy wine tasting with the beautiful St. Rita mountains in the background on this getaway with family.
