Trevor at Zephyr Cove

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Names/Ages: Trevor (5)
Vacation Location: Zephyr Cove, Lake Tahoe

Favorite Baby or Child Friendly Activity There: Playing in the water was his favorite activity. We all had so much fun just exploring; hiking, playing at the beach, kayaking, riding the cable car, etc.

Best Tip for Traveling with Kids: Buying new activites for the long road trip made all the difference. I pulled together what was on hand for the first leg of our trip and quickly realized that wasn’t going to cut it. For our drive home, we made a trip to the local toy store and loaded up on cool new toys for the ride home.

Favorite Way to Make it Feel Like Home: Packing his construction toys from home. Since we drove, this was easy to bring along. As soon as we got to the hotel he was busy setting everything up.

An Item you MUST Take With You While Traveling: Our Apple I-Touch! We load up his Bob the Builder shows and we know it will entertain him. He knows it is a special treat, since we only use it on our trips.

Thanks, Kelly!
