I need help planning summer vacation for toddler, any suggestions?

I am trying to plan our family vacation for July of this year. I have a 2yo son, so looking for ideas that are toddler friendly. Anywhere in the continental US is okay. We had plans that fell through, so kinda short notice on figuring something out. Don't wanna spend more than $1,500 on lodging. Thanks!

  • Somewhere with a beach was always a hit when the kids were young. OK, it still is.

  • You could always go visit one of the Six Flags theme parks.

  • With a 2 yo I would do something very low key. I always took/take mine to a quiet family friendly beach and rent a house oceanfront so it's just us.

  • Disney is a sort of safe and easy way to go. Lot's of facilities for the little one too. The down side is LOTS of people. Upside is lots of places to duck out and let the 2 year old nap, baby care centers, etc. If you are trying to keep the cost down, you can stay at one of the Disney budget hotels or even stay off site. We went to Disney World several times when the kids were at that age. No major problems . . . except for the daily noon meltdown . . . but that's another story. My friend Chris just wrote a story about traveling to Disney with Toddlers, you might find her tips interesting. http://micechat.com/blogs/park-wise/3477-visiting-disney-park-toddlers.html
