Waikiki, Hawaii

Q: We’re heading to Oahu over the summer and would love to find a beachside hotel in Waikiki. Any suggestions? Thanks! ~ FM

A: Hi FM, Hawaii is beach paradise, and Waikiki is among the best known, and most beautiful sandy spots on Oahu. But not all hotels are directly on the beach.

#TravelTuesday Q&A: Spring Break Sweet 16

Spring Break

Q: Hi Playground: Do you have any ideas for a sweet 16 trip for late April spring break? It will be four of us: My daughter and her friend and me and the other mom. The girls want somewhere warm with a beach and other kids their age and we’d be there 3-4 nights. The girls are interested in Atlantis, the moms were hoping for something not quite as hectic. ~ Thank you! Shari S.

Palm Springs California | family travel

Q:  Hi, I’m planning a spring break in California. We’d love to go to Palm Springs, but it turns out that the Coachella music festival takes place around the same dates. Can we still make it work? And do you think two teen boys (14 and 18) will like the California desert? ~ Thanks! MR

Q: Hey Playgound! Vacationing with kids is great but do you have any recommendations for a winter weekend couples getaway to Miami/Florida Keys? Just a quiet spot with good food, good beach, good room. Nothing wild, loud, fancy or with kids! Thanks — Sarah D.

#TravelTuesday Q&A: Two Week Puerto Rico Getaway with a Toddler

puerto_rico-wikipedia
Q: Hi Playground! I’m headed to Puerto Rico with my husband and two year old in March.What is your best advice on top things to do with a toddler? Would you make any changes to the itinerary below? Is it worth driving all the way to Cabo Rojo? If you picked three of the four places, which would you recommend? A little about us: Pre-baby we loved active adventure vacations. We are still up for a little adventure, but we are realistic that we want to travel easier with a toddler:

Days 1 – 4: San Juan, Caribe Hilton: Old town, castillo, kids museum, Camuy caves, beach
Days 5 – 7: Cabo Rojo, vacation rental: beaches, hiking, salt flats
Days 8 – 11: Fajardo, El Conquistador Resort: El Yunque and resort activities
Days 12 – 14: Vieques (need a hotel): Beaches, Bioluminescent Bay (we’ll split up two nights to do this without toddler)

~ Thanks! Kelly

Florida Keys | family travel

Q:  Hi, I wanted to get your tips on where to stay in the Florida Keys — any place you have been and like? We’re not really resort people, and all the Key West B&Bs we’ve looked at seem designed for two people, not families. Thanks! ~ A.B.
