Family-Friendly Travel Guides

Family Travel Guides for Weekends in Europe with KidsAt-A-Glance: Traveling to Paris, Rome, and London with Kids for the Weekend Travel Guide Series. Traveling with kids to new faraway places is fun and exciting, but also due to the cultural differences, it can be a bit daunting. Not in a terrible way, but if you are anything like myself or our other Jet Set Family readers, the same concerns often arise. “Which places in Europe are best to visit with children?” “Which places accommodate families?” “How can we maximize our trip in a short period of time?” “What will they eat?” While each child is different, believe it or not, traveling throughout Europe can be done so that the entire family has the best experience possible. A great source if you are contemplating visiting Paris, Rome, and London, happens to be a fantastic series of family-travel guides by author Hassan Osman. He has compiled his personal experience into three micro-travel guides (perfect for busy parents) covering each location: Paris in a Weekend with Two KidsRome in a Weekend with Two Kids, and London in a Weekend with Two Kids. And I have to say, they are better than any other resources I have found across the web while doing my own research.
