Collected by Charu Suri
The toddler friendly market needs destinations like these, so new parents can enjoy themselves and have fun with the little ones (specifically the under 3 age group) too.
Harbor Island, The Bahamas
Harbour Island is an out island of the out island Eleuthera in the Bahamas. Home to a scant 1,500 people and more golf carts than cars, Harbour Island is the perfect place to get away from it all. It’s also home to the rich and famous who visit...
103800 Overseas Highway, MM 103.8, Key Largo, FL 33037, USA
I sat in my lounge under a palm tree and gazed at the beautiful Gulf. I just sighed. The beauty of the Keys is a good reason to visit and most of them produce a languid sense of well being and relaxation. I stayed at the Key Largo Marriott Resort...
3094 Madison Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45209, USA
Blue Manatee is a truly fabulous store for families and kids. They have an amazing selection of great books, toys, games, and other little trinkets for toddlers, elementary-aged kids, and even middle school kids. Their decor is extensive and very...
137 National Plaza, Oxon Hill, MD 20745, USA
I love merry-go-rounds. In this day and age, when everything is fast, faster and fastest, this slow ride is a throwback to a simpler time in family entertainment. Reminds me of my happy childhood. Located on the edge of the Potomac River, the...
500 Jackson Ave, Naperville, IL 60540, USA
Sure, there are a lot of things to do in Naperville. It's a pretty big town. But really, the best thing to do is nothing, as long as I'm doing it along the Riverwalk. Round trip, it's three miles that cover both woods and downtown, in about equal...
56-2864 Akoni Pule Hwy, Hawi, HI 96719, USA
My wife and I like the amenities of resort vacations as much as the next couple. But in June 2012, we spent a month living like locals. Our favorite part of that experience was at a magical place near Hawi named Puakea Ranch. The place is dripping...
200 W Island Ave, San Diego, CA 92101, USA
The Children's Museum in the Gaslamp is a multilevel building full of wonderful things for kids to do. Don't let the title 'museum' fool you into thinking this is some stuffy place where you look at things. This is a multidimensional experience...
61 Hawks Cay Blvd, Duck Key, FL 33050, USA
Most travelers head straight to Key West from Miami. Unlike Lot’s wife, there’s no turning back for many of them —it’s an arrow-straight drive down gorgeous Route 1, past clusters of islands and over the endless, graceful arcs of bridges down to...
10600 E Crescent Moon Dr, Scottsdale, AZ 85262, USA
This is my favorite Scottsdale resort because it gets Southwestern style down without being kitschy or over-done. There are no cheesy dream catchers or Kokopelli statues here – just a color palette as bright and breathtaking as a desert sunset....
Inside Stellar Gymkhana Club, R-1, Knowledge Park II, Tugalpur Village, Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh 201310, India
Traveling doesn't have to mean a lapse in education. This spot features an abundance of hands-on exhibits, enough to entertain kids, from toddlers to older children. Be sure to check out the calendar in case of upcoming classes.

Habitot is a great indoor play space for infants and toddlers. They have several rooms with different themes; the art room has a big board for kids to paint and play with clay. There's a water room that with several small water tubs that kids can...
1707 NE Indian River Dr, Jensen Beach, FL 34957, USA
As I walked the path at the Indian RiverSide Park in Jensen Beach, I watched the children running and playing on the small beach. I saw others laughing as they ran in and out of the fountain at the water park. I sat at a pavilion and enjoyed the...
Located right across the park from most of Atlanta's major tourist attractions, a visit to the Children's Museum of Atlanta makes for a welcome addition to your day. Open daily, except for Wednesdays, the children's museum specializes in exhibits...
