When it comes to travelling with kids, you have to take so many more factors into account. You need to keep their minds occupied at all times, immersing them in fun experiences from dawn till dusk. You also have to be a lot more prepared, packing carefully, choosing where to stay with comfort and ease at the forefront of your mind, and ensuring that you take plenty of supplies out with you on each day out. So when planning your next trip, why not consider Connecticut, the Nutmeg State? It’s home to a brilliant experience for both you and your little ones! Here’s everything you need to know about vacationing there.

Accommodation

When you’re travelling as an adult or with other adults, you can make compromises when it comes to accommodation. You can consider it merely a place to rest your head at the end of a day out and cut corners when it comes to amenities and thus price. However, when you have little ones, where you stay becomes so much more important. Your accommodation needs to be high-quality. Everything needs to be clean, the beds need to be spacious and comfortable, the bathroom needs to be large enough to negotiate family shower and bath time routines. You could also do with dining options on-site. Eating out with the family every night can quickly mount up, and it can be difficult getting everyone to far away diners in good spirits. For all of this, consider somewhere like the Hartford Marriott Farmington .

Things to Do

Now for the fun part. Once you’ve settled where you’re staying, you can start planning your trips and days out. There are plenty of activities that children will relish in this state. Here are just a few for you to consider.

Mystic Seaport

The mystic seaport is the nation’s leading maritime museum. You can expect to see four National Historic Landmark Vessels, including Charles W. Morgan, America’s oldest commercial ship and the last wooden whale-ship to exist!

The Hard Rock Cafe is a chain of themed restaurants and a haven for fans of music, good food, and fun times. There are hundreds of individual restaurants about, each located in notable cities. So make it a family tradition to visit one wherever you go. Your little ones can check out the memorabilia that’s on display, marvelling at items from some of their favourite stars. Then, time to chow down on an all-American style menu. Make sure to check out the gift shop on your way out, where you can buy tees, mugs, keyrings and even babygrows!

New Haven’s Ghost Walk

If your little ones are brave and interested in spooks, then New Haven’s ghost walk might be the perfect experience for them. Professional storytellers and actors guide you around the most haunted areas of New Haven, and you needn’t worry about weary legs - the tour consists of more talking than walking, and the entire tour will total less than a mile in length.

As you can see, Connecticut is a highly family-friendly state with all of the amenities and tours that you need to keep your little ones smiling and content.
