5 destinations for summer holidays 2018 for single mothers
Holidays with children are not always very easy to organize, especially if organizing them is a single mom: in some cases they can be a time of great stress. The reasons are many and range from the difficulty in finding a place that can meet the needs of those who are traveling alone with one or more children, until the impossibility to find the right offer. Finding the solution that best suits our needs is not always easy, especially when you are single parents. For this category of travelers, the keywords are two: fun and relaxation! Tour operators create advantageous travel packages for families of 2 adults, forgetting that sometimes the adult can only be one. Fortunately, in the last few years the tourism sector has increased its attention to single-parent families or single parents who want to spend their holidays with their children, proposing ad hoc solutions for them. Hundredrooms.co.uk offers you 5 ideal destinations to spend a few days with your little ones. Let’s see what are the most suitable destinations and proposals.
Large cities may seem more demanding, especially in summer, when temperatures are higher. However, scattered throughout Europe, there are many “kid friendly” capitals, with programs suitable for children. Among them there is one that is particularly appreciated by children London, a city full of museums and exhibitions, many of these free, many green spaces, castles and bridges on the river, shop windows and shops with toys of all sorts. Renting a holiday apartment in London means you can not miss attractions like the London Eye, which has become a symbol of the city, the Sea Life London Aquarium, Shrek’s Adventure, the London Dungeon, a little frightening reconstruction of the city’s mysterious events and finally the Madame Tussauds wax museum, fantastic even with a train ride to discover London and 4D cinema. In short, a large city suitable for children!
If what you need is a few days by the sea, to relax and have fun with your children, Hundredrooms recommends a small and charming place a few steps from Olbia, in Sardinia. San Teodoro is truly an unmissable destination and absolutely recommended, for the joy of the little ones. Accommodation cutting-edge, equipped with every comfort, and activities of any kind, from sailing courses to soccer competitions for children, from nursery to baby parks for children. Do not miss the specially organized excursions for children, with historical-cultural or naturalistic itineraries and puppet shows by the sea. In addition, all the beaches are child-friendly: expanses of white sand and fine sand where you can run and contract sandcastles without problems and crystalline, shallow waters in which to play and learn to float safely. In addition, along the beach there are public games with slides and swings that will surely entertain your children and allow you to relax a little. There is something for all tastes and for all budgets!
This city of the valencian coast combines relaxation, entertainment and culture, the right mix for a family on holiday. In Gandia, in fact, the beaches offer numerous activities, including swimming lessons for children, and are crowded with entertainers who provide entertainment to all those who decide to spend their holidays there. In addition, the beaches are controlled by lifeguards who will ensure your children’s safety for more than 14 hours a day. During the hottest hours, when it is advisable to leave the beaches, you can take the little ones to discover the historic center, an intricate system of streets and alleys that is an unmissable destination of this maritime city or around the city’s various parks. The city is also child-friendly, full of playgrounds and public gardens to run and play. In addition, there are numerous accommodation facilities ready to accommodate children, entertaining them with sports and group activities. Fun is guaranteed!
Perhaps, there is no more suitable city to be visited with the children of Copenhagen. Here the days pass in perfect balance between past and future, culture and entertainment, security and continuous change. It is no coincidence that it has been called “the happiest city in the world”. The name is actually due to the degree of satisfaction of those who live there, but it seems that it is transmitted in the air to tourists. The reasons for choosing as a destination for a trip as a single mother are many: the old town is mostly closed to traffic, the major attractions are all close at hand and can be safely reached on foot or, even better, by bike; almost all the restaurants offer the Children Menu and are always equipped to accommodate the little ones; the city is safe and there are so many things to do and see, able to satisfy adults and children; there is a lot of public green and, at every corner, a playground. In short, being kids-friendly is in the DNA of this city. Do not miss Superklen, a perfect area for children, the Children’s Museum, the Guinness Book of World Records and the Den Bla Planet, one of the largest aquariums in Europe.
Copenhagen is not the only Danish city we recommend. If you are single mom and want to give your children an unforgettable experience, surely you have to evaluate the possibility of going to Billund and visit Legoland, the theme park where everything is built with the famous bricks that appeals to young and old. Since 1968, when the park was opened, over 50 million people have visited this park, divided into different thematic areas. There is the Kingdom of the Knights, with a huge medieval castle, visible already from outside the park where dragons and princesses will wait for you; the area of the pirates where you can go to the lagoon, get on a boat and be transported in the caves to see their battles up close or play with the guns that shoot water; the area of the Vikings, huge Lego giants engaged in their battles. Among the many attractions there is also a 4D cinema, where you can see funny projections in both Danish and English. Your little ones will certainly not get bored here!
