Giveaway: CARES Child Aviation Restraint System by Kids Fly Safe ($75 Value)

Eilan sits safely in his own airplane seat using the CARES harness

Eilan is two years old now, and a few weeks ago he flew in his own, purchased seat for the first time! As with the other kids, we buckled him in using a lightweight CARES Child Aviation Restraint System. It was a great reminder for me about how much we've used and appreciated this product, so when I returned home, I contacted CARES to see whether they would let me give one away to one of my readers. I'm excited to say that they agreed! It's easy to enter, just leave a comment telling me about a family friendly hotel, restaurant or attraction. It can be in your hometown, or someplace you have visited.

Here's more about the CARES Child Aviation Restraint SystemCar Seat Accessories). CARES is a special harness designed just for airplane seats. Instead of lugging along your child's carseat, you bring this small, lightweight belt system that slips around the airplane seat. It's FAA approved, and it doesn't interfere with the way the seat operates in any way. Plus it fits in a purse or a backpack pocket. But just between you and me, the thing I'm most grateful for in-flight is that the kids sit back in the seat far enough that they cannot kick the seat head of them. We have two CARES that we purchased at our own expense for Everest, Darya, and now Eilan. We've also lent them to friends, and they're still in great shape 4 years later. They've been worth every penny.

Thank you to CARES who generously sponsored this giveaway

    Kiahuna Plantation on Kauai was great with our 2 year old. The property is directly on the beach. There is a huge lawn for everyone to enjoy, and a pool with a small "kiddie pool" section as well as a water slide. We all loved it!

    American West Heritage Center in Cache Valley, UT. It's a farm that is ran like an 1800s early 1900s farm. They all dress in time period clothing, and they have all sorts of awesome activities for kids!

    One of our favorite places to visit is the Indianapolis Children's Museum. It has educational and hands-on exhibits for both parents and kids, and I was especially pleased that their cafeteria offered options for kids with food allergies; it was great to actually eat out for once!

    The Glazer Children's Museum in Tampa is the best children's museum we have been to in the country. Bright, spacious, clean, and the staff seemed very eager to please. Only downside is the limited hours and offerings of the on-site cafe.

    And if your kid still has fuel to burn after the museum, the grassy park and playground right outside is an awesome place to let a kid run wild!

    We love the Portland Children's Museum! We are members there, so we frequently go to enjoy the various exhibits, including a pretend animal hospital, grocery store, performance stage, and tree house. My 2 year old daughter has a blast and it makes for some great entertainment on a rainy day (of which there are many here!).

    Hi! What a great contraption! We are just figuring out family friendly places, but we have dous ourselves going back to The Crow's Nest restaurant at the harbor in Santa Cruz Ca several times. In addition to beig very helpful with providing kid friendly food they have a treasure chest of toys kids can choose from.

    My family-friendly place are the springs around Orlando. Sure, there's Disney and Sea World, but for something different, there are a number of springs you can swing in or tube down north of Orlando. Very cool!

    If you're ever in Woodbridge, NJ, the restaurant Jose Tejas has enormous kids meals for just $3 - drinks, tacos, burgers, etc., plus fries and m&ms or starburst. Crazy huge portions (they can feed a full size adult!) and incredible prices. Best deal in Central NJ for kids.

    Whenever we visit family in Ohio, we stay at the Great Wolf Lodge in Mason. There's something for all 3 of our kids (ages 2-12), and the club rooms are fun for the kids while giving the adults some privacy. I also love that we don't need to carry wallets and keys; everything is charged to the room with a bracelet. It's pricey but worth it for our whole family to enjoy our hotel (and waterpark) of choice. Also, it's next door to King's Island amusement park. :)

    Explora in Albuquerque, NM is a great hands-on science/discovery museum. The exhibits are set up so that kids of all ages have fun fiddling with the experiments. At 18 months, my son was tinkering with exhibits that were also interesting and fascinating to older kids as well as adults. There is also a toddler room for the 2 and under set with seating for parents/caretakers. It's the kind of place kids will ask to go back to again and again!

    I would like to recommend the family-friendly El Rey Inn in Santa Fe, NM. We stumbled across this completely by accident when we spent a night in Santa Fe while driving cross-country with our 18-mo-old. It's a lovely historic inn that has beautiful grounds, a heated pool and hot tub (I think there was a little playground too), and includes a generous full breakfast, all for a very reasonable price, but the best part was the room they gave us. It was in the older part of the property that used to be a motorcourt-style motel, and had a huge, gorgeous bathroom, a nice sized bedroom for us (with mini-fridge, etc), and this little bonus bedroom, twin-bed sized, just off our room, which was perfect for tucking in our little one and getting a little time to ourselves. If you've traveled with little ones you know how frustrating it can be to have to pretty much go to bed at the same time they do if you're all sharing one room, but all-suite hotels can be pricey if you just need a place to sleep. This was a great compromise that enabled everyone to get a full, relaxing night's sleep and to recharge for our next day of driving. We would definitely stay there again if we ever get back to Santa Fe!

    If you travel to Wellington, New Zealand with kids you'll have a great time! It's got the flair and culture and cuisine of any major metropolitan city in the world (Broadway shows, major bands, international film/art festivals, etc.), but it's also the most kid-friendly city I've ever seen!

    One of our favorite places to sit and have a fantastic coffee was Caffe L'Affare, which has a huge rug in the middle for kiddos to play on--complete with a massive basket full of toys. Next door is Brooklyn Bakery & Cafe, and they have a similar set-up for the little ones, letting mommies and daddies have time to sit and enjoy their cuppa and conversation in relative peace!

    My daughter is 29 months old, and her favorite sit-down restaurant is Red Robin - it's a chain, and they're available in lots of states.

    They have a great kids menu - lots of variety, with plenty of side dishes to choose from. The servers are great with kids, the food comes in unbreakable plastic baskets, and it comes out QUICK.

    Best of all, they offer kids balloons on the way out. I go there just to hear my daughter say "bwoon, Mommy".

    Oh, and did I mention that the "grown up" menu is also delish? I recommend the bruschetta chicken sandwich. Yummmm.

    In the north Denver metro area:
    IN BOULDER: Southern Sun (NOT the associated Mountain Sun, don't know about their other restaurant The Vine Street Pub) - Southern Sun has picnic-table seating and a supply of games. Any night you'll see young kids running about in this brewpub that also happens to offer great beer and food.

    IN LONGMONT: Oskar Blues Liquid and Solids has an outdoor area with a huge sandbox with tables along the edge. I think it turns into a horseshoe/dart pit at night, but in the evenings it is full of toddlers with trucks. Pricey food, but good food and beer while your kids have fun.

    I wouldn't have thought that Famous Dave's would be infant-friendly, but it was the first place we encountered that had car-seat holders so our child could sit safely near us. (Unlike some restaurants that turn over their child high-chairs into a very UNSTABLE holder!)

    I'm in the UK, so for anyone travelling over here, the most kid-friendly places to take your kids to eat are probably the Pizza Express chain and also the Debenhams stores have a good set up for babies - little microwave stations for heating up food, highchairs, free paper bibs and wet wipes and good mother and baby rooms. Boots (drugstores) and Mothercare (clothing store) usually have very good mother and baby rooms. If you're planning on visiting Wales, this place: is lovely!

    I know fast food is supposed to be child friendly anyway, but I really like the way Chick-fil-a goes out of their way to accommodate families. They have stick on placemats for kids, bendy straws, an option for fruit cup instead of fries...and our local restaurant even has a family night every Tuesday with a person who makes balloon animals.

    I LIKED DeliciousBaby on FB. I like taking my little 11 month old Pierce to our local Farmer's Market, Bluffton SC, on Thursday's & Chic-fil-A, every once & awhile.
    We too are getting ready for our first flight across country to visit family Pierce will be meeting for the first time.

    Pete Rose's Restaurant in Boynton Beach, FL. is very child-friendly. They have a great game room and tv's in the booths, and they always treat the kids like they are welcome. I love that last fact!

    There's a nice, local, tavern (don't freak! It's really nice.) located in San Diego's Southpark neighborhood that has an enclosed play area for the kiddos. The name of the place is: "Station Tavern & Burgers". It used to house the trolleys before becoming a restaurant.

    I love your blog and recommend it to all my friends! I am about to travel to Hawaii...and fully plan on using your cityguide to do it! I liked you on Facebook...but some time ago.
    I can also recommend Kidspace Museum in Pasadena, CA. They have a family free night on the first Tuesday of every month from 4-8pm. It gets pretty crowded that night but it's worth it! They have everything a kiddo needs...hands on, inside, outside, messy and clean activities!

    The Field Museum in Chicago has this awesome hands-on section for little kids in the lower level. It is so wonderful and so well-hidden - you have to know about it or you'll miss it!

    The Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo is a must-visit place for children ages 1-10 in the SF Bay Area. Just the right size for little ones and a lot of great hands on features.

    We have a Peabody Hotel near our area called the Peabody Hotel where you can watch a real duck parade. Every night, they sleep in their "room". Then, in the morning, the duck master rolls out the red carpet, and they come down the elevator and into the lobby where they waddle to the hotel lobby duck pool. Then they go to their room with much fanfare. Near the Peabody is the river where there is a great park for kids.

    There are a ton of kid-friendly places in Chicago but one I don't think I've mentioned before is Brookfield Zoo. It's more expensive than the (free) Lincoln Park Zoo, but it has so many things to do you can't see everything in one day. They also recently opened their North American exhibit, which features bison, polar bears and wolves. Needless to say, it became on of my boys' favorite attraction besides the dolphin show.

    I live just outside Boston, and we recently took our son to the Franklin Park Zoo in the city. It's not the best zoo you'll ever go to, probably, but it was the perfect size for the toddler attention span. He really loved it!
