Our 3 day rustic Vermont itinerary with our kids

Earlier this week, we posted about how the sharing economy produced another awesome idea of camping at farms. We came upon this gem while researching ways to level up our family camping experience while exploring nearby Vermont. As a family of 5 with a baby, a toddler, and a 5-year-old living in NYC, aka the city that never sleeps, we didn’t think our little attention spans would survive a secluded campsite off in the woods. The RV campground style camping with playgrounds and video games and overcrowding is too contrived for us though so we started researching a good middle ground. Enter Farm Camping. We came, we tried, and we fell in love with the experience.

Read along for details of our Vermont farm camping itinerary along with a few tips and recommendations. We spent a lot of time speaking to camp hosts and locals to curate the experience, but none of the content on this page is sponsored. 🙂

If you haven’t camped on a farm with your kids, you’re doing it wrong.

If you’re thinking about camping with your kids, or anywhere for that matter, you should strongly consider camping on a farm.  The evolution of the sharing economy has now reached a level of creative genius that I tip my hat to, without dumping half my paycheck.  What started with renting otherwise free afternoons to TaskRabbit or leasing spare bedrooms on Airbnb has now evolved into “Go ahead and pitch your tent on that little corner of my farm.”  

Read along for an overview of how we got into this stroke of genius, how to find a good campsite near you, whether you’re in Vermont as we were or not, as well as other activities to pair with all of the fun you’ll have on the farm.

Rockaway is the best baby and toddler friendly beach in New York City

New York City in the summertime is hot.  Between the humidity and the heat, it can get downright oppressive. Mingled into most plans for a week in NYC is a trip to Coney Island, which is totally worth it, but the beach there can be a bit suffocating with the crowd.  An alternative to Coney Island is Rockaway in Queens. Rockaway is a local favorite, and in my opinion the best baby and toddler friendly beach in NYC. Brittany and I bring our family to Rockaway at least two or three times every summer.

Essential Guide to Car Camping with Toddlers

Having grown up camping ourselves, of course, we would sleep under the stars with our babies on warm summer nights. We quickly learned (as with everything in parenting), there is quite a bit more planning and packing required to enjoy a backcountry adventure with little ones.  After a few hiccups along the way, we have found our footing and now love a quick weekend or weeklong camping getaway and have put together an essential guide to car camping with toddlers!

16 toddler friendly restaurants in NYC that are local favorites

People come to New York City for a variety of reasons, but after having lived here for the better part of 9 years, I can attest to the fact that the food really is top notch.  There are plenty of food guides for a proper foodie trip to New York, but when traveling with toddlers there has to be a balance of unique and different from home versus requirements of the kids.  Lucky for New York City tourists we have a pretty solid list of 16 toddler friendly restaurants in NYC where we frequently eat and recommend.
