The city trip is a good bet because you'll have access to everything you need at your destination, and you have a multitude of infant friendly places and activities to choose from. You can be the tourist and go sight seeing or live like one of the locals and immerse yourself in a neighborhood for a week. So where does one go for a city trip? We like the major cities that let Moms and Dads walk out on the town with their infants. It's a great way to explore. Here are some suggestions for our two favorite baby city spots: New York and San Francisco.
New York – New York is jam packed with restaurants and shops on nearly every corner and block – all within walking distance of your stay. Take your stroller with you and explore with your infant. Stay at the Doubletree Guest Suites, which has two-room suites that are perfect for families. Besides the fact that cribs, strollers, and childproofing is offered, you can just walk out and stroll by landmarks like Radio City Music Hall and Rockefeller Center.
San Francisco – Older children and toddlers will enjoy visits to Golden Gate Park where they can enjoy the gardens, ponds, and ducks. A stay at The W San Francisco is worth your while, if you're traveling here. You don't have to sacrifice style at this swanky hotel that just happens to be part of a family friendly group of W Hotels. Cribs and references for babysitting services are available upon request.
Helpful Hint : To find everything and anything there is to do in a city with kids, visit www.gocitykids.com and go to the city you'll be visiting.
