Activities

Spending the night away with a child, it can be done!

You avoid going away for the weekend under the pretense that fancy hotels don't really cater to children's need? There's no more excuses! Some very nice places are family friendly!

A lot of these places offer spa treatments, and one even offers in-room massages while baby is sleeping!

Here are some of the places you might enjoy! Do you know any other ones? Tell us about them and give us the details so we can add them to the list! The important thing is that parents can enjoy themselves while having the kids!
