We used to be great travelers... back when we had the one very mild-mannered boy. Now we have the 4 year old boy and a CUH-RAZY little 1 year old girl. So we've been too scared to travel. My husband works for the airline industries, so we'd do (free) stand-by, wherever we went. Prob is we can't pick between NYC and Pensacola Beach, FL.
NYC is my fave place.. I could just walk the streets all day.. endless eating options, etc etc. We could do childrens museums, a ton of great parks, FAO, etc etc.. but there's the fact that our 1 y/o hates her stroller (and Ergo, dear Lord help us) and hates her carseat.. making any cab-ride not so fun. So it'd be a whole lot of whining.. (which we're used to, but still..) **ALSO, if we did NYC we wanted to try a vrbo,com 2 bedroom/2 bath condo or apt option.. for some reason, this scares me. Not scared to do a hotel. but we simply cannot afford a 2 bdrm hotel in NYC (whereas we can an apt rental..). We really won't know what we're getting into, you know?
The beach would be pretty simple, stay at the beach/pool almost all day, break for naps, go out to eat, the end. BUT there's the stress of cleaning off two tired/sunscreened-up, wet, sandy sticky kids multiple times a day. Does not sound fun! All the beach gear.. all the sand..
Probably overthinking, but crap, this is our first trip in like 1.5 years! Advice?
