Yay for Friday! Even though we can’t go anywhere I am so looking forward to...
Times have moved on so much from years ago, when my mum and dad married many moons ago they didn’t even live together before they were married. I would say that more and more people are moving in together and having children before getting married. I find it lovely that the children can be involved and part of the wedding and honeymoon. That is why I love today’s post because Tom our resident honeymoon expert is kindly sharing with us ideas for honeymoons with the children.
Honeymooning when you have children can be tricky; if a willing babysitter remains to be a pipe dream or you find leaving them behind just too difficult, taking them with you may be the best solution. But don’t let the responsibilities of parenthood deter you from planning your ultimate lover’s getaway. Honeymoons with kids can still be wonderfully romantic and exciting. You just have to find family friendly destinations that can tick all of your boxes. For some post wedding inspiration to get you started, here are 5 perfect honeymoons for taking the little ones.
The best Californian road trip routes can be anything between a few days to a few weeks. And for families, one of the best ways to travel is in a family friendly RV. The beauty of a road trip is that you can make it work around your busy schedule, and California is, without question, one of the most beautiful and exciting places for honeymoon or family break. Popular routes include the Venice Beach area which is ideal for kids, the Napa Wine Country or the Sonoma Wine Country which are great for wine lovers, or the scenic route around Lake Tahoe which boasts the most romantic views. Good RV rental companies include Cruise America, 1st Choice RV and Camper USA. You can see more ideas on Brides.com
If Gelato and pizza aren’t enough to entice the kids, you’ll find plenty of exciting attractions to keep the whole family entertained. The bustling capital is rich in history and culture and your little ones will be fascinated by the grand Roman Colosseum, the ruins of Ostia Antica or the archaeological complex of Hadrian’s Villa. At night, you can safely wander the winding (although busy) streets of Trastevere and grab an affordable bite to eat or take an early evening stroll down the Roman Passeggiata.

If you want to stay close to home, Cornwall offers a number of options when it comes to accommodation. Rent a family cottage for a home away from home, take the kids camping at the many campsites around the region, or stay in a quaint B&B for the week. In the summer, Cornwall is truly spectacular and children will love the seaviews at Land’s End, the cool and quirky Gardens of Heligan (near Mevagissey), or the huge choice of theme parks and play centres. The best family beaches can be found at St Ives Bay, Constantine Bay or Sennen Cove. If you’re after a bit of alone time, there are also many day nurseries across the county. Find more ideas here
