Two Days of Outdoor Fun with Kids in Wilmington, NC

Family Can Travel - 2 Days of Outdoor Fun with Kids in Wilmington, North Carolina - Wrightsville Beach Scenic Tours Eco Tour - so much space on the beach

To be honest, we didn’t know much about Wilmington, North Carolina at the time we were planning our trip. We simply wanted to break up the 8 hour drive from Charleston with kids and before hiking in Shenandoah National Park with kids. Wilmington was around the halfway point and was on the ocean, so we decided to give it a shot, and we are so glad we did. Wilmington turned out to be one of our favorite places in the whole SE USA road trip!

Thankfully our years of travel experience has taught us to adapt and plan on the fly. That said, there were a handful of things we wish we had known before going to Magic Kingdom Orlando with our kids.

Family Can Travel - 2 Days in Savannah with Kids - Wormsloe Historic Site - Long Row of Oaks and Spanish moss - Feature Image

Savannah is known for its antebellum architecture, beautiful parks, horse-drawn carriages and its majestic oak trees, draped romantically in Spanish moss. We arrived in Savannah with our two kids (aged 2 & 5) after 3 exhausting days in Orlando. We wanted to see the historic side of Savannah, but after the recent theme park madness, we also desperately craved some nature. Savannah delivered very nicely on both accounts.

Meeting Belle at Walt Disney World

Like many 5 year olds, our daughter is all about princesses. She watches endless Disney princess movies, wears princess dresses and tiaras every day, has pretend royal weddings (to her Dad, her brother, the dogs…. anyone who will participate), reads books, etc, etc, etc. When we decided to do a SE USA road trip, we knew we had to visit Orlando to let her be a princess at Disney World for a day.

How to Get Good Recommendations for Family Trips to Orlando

Family-Can-Travel---How-to-Get-the-Best-Recommendations-for-Your-Trip-to-Orlando-Header

When we decided to visit to Orlando for three days, we didn’t have any firm plans outside of a few days at Disney World. Despite being professional travelers, we don’t often have much time to plan travel details ahead of time. We typically use guide books and websites like TripAdvisor and Yelp, but often we wish we had information about great attractions, restaurants etc. that others don’t have.
