Traveling with our kids is something that we are passionate about and we love to do. But, that doesn’t mean that it is necessarily easy to do. There are many things that we have to consider, plan, and prepare for in advance in order for any trip with the kids to be successful. Especially a ski vacation! Kids definitely don’t make travel any easier, but it’s a good thing they do make it more fun! We have gone on enough ski trips with our children to really have a solid plan of attack if you will to ensure a successful ski vacation with the family! But, with that being said. Yes, our kids whine, yes, our kids cry (after all, they are kids), yes, it can be hard at times, but in the end, it is always so worth it to go home with the good memories, and a deeper closeness that vacations provide to families!
If you are a family that has been toying with the idea of a ski vacation, or love to ski, but haven’t yet committed to making a vacation out of it, then please read on! Our ski vacations are some of my very favorite vacations, and while it can be a lot of planning and preparation, we always end up having a good time together during our stay!
My family just got back from an amazing “Staycation” at Deer Valley Resort! The weekend before Valentine’s Day, we try to do a little staycation to spend time together, unplug, and create new memories and experiences as a family! I am a huge quality time person, so what better way to show your family that you love them, than spend an entire weekend together doing something that you love! (Be sure to scroll to the bottom for our highlight video!)
We absolutely love to go to Deer Valley because it not only is a nearby high class ski resort, but they also provide amenities like none other! The Deer Valley difference is real, and here are just a few of the reasons we love to go to Deer Valley!
We decided to escape to the desert for Fall Break this year, and it was the perfect getaway! The temperatures were in the 80’s and 90’s, the kids got to swim to their hearts content, and we got to explore a new city as a family! Palm Springs is a bit of a hidden gem! It was once considered a sleepy retiree town, it is now a retro-chic destination that is also very family friendly, not to mention the entire place is so photogenic and Instagrammable! Seriously, beautiful mid-century architecture, amazing dining experiences, outdoor hiking, a national park, shopping, it really has it all!
Our fondest memories are almost always traced back to our family vacations, and our Palm Springs stay was another great trip for the books! The Palm Springs area offers a variety of the best activities the desert has to offer! Check out the full list of 6 things to do with kids in Palm Springs below!
