We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

Mother's Day Getaways: Bring the Kids

Henley Vazquez

Treat mom to a weekend getaway. No flights, no fuss, just a quick drive to some of our favorite family escapes.

Trade the urban jungle for a weekend “out East” on Long Island’s beaches.

Splurge: c/o The Maidstone, a stylish boutique hotel and trendy eatery on East Hampton's Main Street.

Steal: The Greenporter, a hip 1950s motel revamp on the North Fork.


Palm trees and the Pacific, surfer breaks and stroller paths, everything about Santa Barbara is pitch perfect.

Splurge: Four Seasons Biltmore, the legendarily plush escape for exhausted Angelenos and their families.

Steal: El Capitan Canyon, for camping in safari tents, yurts or rustic cabins.


Wine country done family-style means good eating, gorgeous landscapes and great wine for mom.

Splurge: Solage Calistoga, a Napa Valley retreat with a Michelin-starred kids’ menu, huge rooms and a family pool.

Steal: Silverado Resort, a 1,200-acre resort with ten (!) swimming pools, tennis, golf and a Thomas Keller restaurant.


 

Check out Milwaukee, the other lakeside city, with brews and bratwurst for mom and dad plus amazing lakefront parks and starchitect-designed museums.

Splurge: The Iron Horse, with a hip restaurant and loft-styled rooms (but still a double queen option for families).

Steal: The Pfister, Milwaukee’s grand dame and a lot of luxury packed into a reasonable price.

Boating, crab cakes and lazy days on the dock make the Chesapeake Bay a favorite getaway for the DC crowd.

Splurge: Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond, a classic Maryland retreat for preppy Beltway families and the picturesque backdrop for The Wedding Crashers.

Steal: Tides Inn, on the Virginian shore of the Chesapeake, with reasonably priced rooms and plenty of activities for kids.


Maine’s southern coast is a quick hop from Boston and has the open beaches, kid-friendly hikes and casual lobster shacks we’ve been missing all winter.

Splurge: Hidden Pond, a collection of individually designed cottages tucked into the woods near Kennebunkport, with a treehouse spa and date-night worthy restaurant.

Steal: Inn by the Sea, an oceanfront resort near Portland with open lawns for energetic kids, a huge beach and a chef focused on sustainable seafood.


Us? The F+F families are staying at home in Brooklyn and Connecticut, decamping to the Hamptons and flying away to a sunny weekend at the Miami Beach EDITION. Cheers to the weekend!
