It seems like people take their kids EVERYWHERE, and even the tried and trusted vacation hotspots now brag that they are "family friendly". Are there ANY nice, romantic, getaway vacation spots left on earth that aren't being overrun by people who insist on bringing their kids EVERYWHERE with them, and selfishly ruining the vacation holiday experience for everyone else? I laughingly thought maybe Antartica or the Galapogas Islands or even the Great Pyramids... until someone directed me to a web site where people were complaining how many kids there were there too (and, because the little kids were bored and miserable, they were obnoxious and ruining it for everyone else). I mean, IT'S BECOMING WORSE THAN SECOND HAND SMOKE! And frankly, it's more annoying. Everywhere you go, people HAVE … [Read more...]

Also specific resorts would be awesome. … [Read more...]

Well, the answer to that is simple, because there are so many fun things for children to do in Seattle. In addition to the many parks spread throughout the city, and by that, I mean that Seattle has several extraordinary parks. Among those great parks are: Alki Playfield, Cal Anderson Park (which boasts a wading pool and a gigantic chess set), Cascade Playground (which features free music Fridays from noon until 2:00), Discovery Park, and Woodland Park. But parks and playgrounds are just a start. Seattle really has so much more to offer than just this. There is the Children's Repertory Theatre, which … [Read more...]
