I am trying to figure out where a good place to bring a little person on vacation that is fun but relaxing at the same time. Does anyone have any ideas? My husband says Disney is out of the question.

  • We go to the beach sometimes and we like to go to places like Gatlinburg, where there are lots of places to take little ones. You just need to remember littles ones get bored fast so dont plan to do to much in one day. And we always try to not have any plans set in stone since kids can get tired and change those plans pretty quickly. Good luck, if you need any tips pm me.

  • I agree, 17 months is too young for Disney. Many times we've been there and I feel sorry for the little ones who are so tired and miserable. I'd say the beach. The child can play in the sand and paddle in the water. In the mid-day heat and sun, he or she can have their nap and quiet time.
