It is officially that time of year when Chicagoans are fleeing for fun in the sun (I’m looking at you, Kari and Whip!). And while a vacation away from the long and brutal Chicago winter sounds like paradise, traveling back and forth with the kids is anything but. For a while, I was so petrified of my kids having a meltdown on a plan or waking up an entire hotel with night terrors that I was too afraid to travel with them. But after one particularly nasty winter, we decided that we needed to head to the beach in order to save our sanity…and I am oh so glad that we did. So I’ve created this family travel checklist for those of you who are nervous about traveling with kids to help ease your worries and fears. I can’t predict a perfect trip, but I can help you feel more prepared and in control.
The beautiful destination that is oh so worth the stressful day of travel…promise!
