Is There a Good Place to Honeymoon—With the Kids?

We recently received a message on our Facebook page from a reader named Kim, asking for advice on where she and her husband-to-be should go on a dream honeymoon. We’ve gotten questions like this before, but this one had an extra twist—they’re planning to bring along their 11–month–old along for the ride.

We’ve offered advice on how to best travel with children, written about the complications of traveling with young ones, and compiled your tips for how to travel with an infant. Now let's help this new family out!

The couple is aiming for a September honeymoon, and was originally thinking of car–camping across New Zealand, or visiting Egypt or Thailand. “We are trying to come up with some creative ideas for what to do that will be a bucket–list type of trip, but also work with our daughter," Kim says in her message. Her dream honeymoon trip would be an Australian adventure, while her fiancé, John, prefers a location with excellent windsurfing opportunities. Kim worries that by not striking a balance, they run the risk of overdoing it with an infant or that their young daughter will not be able to participate in any family activities.

What are your picks for an exciting honeymoon spot that will accommodate everyone? Have you ever taken a dream–bucket–list trip with a young child? Please share your thoughts below!
