Your children are only this age once, and they will remember more than you think. We recently ventured to North Myrtle Beach with 2 yr. old twins and a 6 month old, and we utilized a few tips to make the trip a joyful experience.

  • Just go! Take the trip, and know the traveling is worth it and not impossible. Your children are strong and capable of handling it. The experiences you provide today are what make dreams, and will be their memories forever.
  • Entertain your kids in the car (or plane) with snacks, wrapped new toys, Water Wow markers, and DVDs. A bonus, budget friendly tip: Rent movies and shows from the library to provide new entertainment for free. Wrapping the toys makes them special, and it will take the kids longer to unwrap...
