San Diego’s North County is one of my favorite corners of the world. That’s partly for sentimental reasons — it was the first real vacation my husband and I took with our son — and partly for its blend of coastal beauty and small-town charm. The area is as kid-friendly as they come, and family…
Keep the kids learning, and enjoy a great weekend in Philadelphia at the Omni Hotel at Independence Park . The location couldn’t be better for exploring Philadelphia’s historic area. A few days isn’t long enough to see it all, but here are my top picks for a family weekend in Philadelphia.
New Hampshire’s White Mountain range provides a natural escape from summer’s heavy heat. With the cooler nights and an abundance of outdoor family-friendly activities, it is the perfect backdrop for an active family vacation. Within the area, Bretton Woods, is known for its creative use of the mountain landscape to provide all-season entertainment for every age. Once you are used to the somewhat remote area, there’s no need to venture out as you are in one of the prettiest and fun-filled family destinations in the Northeast.

Ciao Bambino has been checking out the kid-focused Camp Omni program at Omni Hotels & Resorts around the country this summer. I reviewed the Omni Parker House last month.

Planning a visit? Here’s my list of must do activities in Boston with children.

Fun camp style activities like scavenger hunts, paired with plenty of vacation moments for parents to unwind and relax.
It’s a shame Omni Hotels aren’t in every city in the US as the staff are always courteous, the rooms are consistently lovely and the level of kid-friendliness has my girls anticipating every visit.
During a recent trip to the Dallas area we were privileged to stay in the Kid’s Fanatasy Suite at the Omni Mandalay at Los Colinas. This 2 room suite on the 23rd floor can be described only as incredible.
There are some extra happy Ciao Bambino readers this week! The winners of the Omni Hotel giveaway and 2010 Passports with Purpose fundraiser at the Riviera Palm Springs have now been confirmed.
