Traveling is a great way for a family to bond while on vacation. So often vacation time is used to run those necessary errands that must be accomplished when the kids are out of school and parents are home. But how about a family friendly attraction that has something for all ages. One of the best travel destinations for kids is the Turks And Caicos Islands. So forget those errands and grab your children’s passports, be sure to check the dates as you cannot obtain a passport renewal for children because they are only valid for five years.
Passports allow for international travel. Without these documents an individual cannot cross international lines. A passport acts as an ID and is scanned at each country’s checkpoint; this will allow a country to know that it is ok for that individual to enter. Children used to be able to travel on their parents United States passports, however, now, due to stricter laws regarding children, they must have their own. Infants are also required to travel with a passport.
The Caribbean is a hot destination for many travelers. It offers warm beautiful beaches and lushes scenery. The Turks And Caicos Islands are a little less known but recently they have become a hub for family friendly vacationers. There are forty islands, out of those forty there are eight islands that are actually inhabited by people.
Family friendly destinations are very hard to come by, often times they’re mostly geared towards newlyweds or couples traveling without children. This is what is great about the Turks and Caicos island resort. They have activities for all members of the family from age one to 99 and above.
The resort features a Sesame Street Extravaganza which means that the loved characters from Sesame Street are at the resort. The resort offers a special camp for kids from 9am to 5pm and they can enjoy activities with their favorite Sesame Street pals, like Elmo, Grover, and even Big Bird.
