Orlando's Wyndham Bonnet Creek Offers Disney-Adjacent Suites and Resort Amenities

Finding the perfect place to stay for your Orlando family vacation can be hard. You want a location with good proximity to the amusement parks, but don't forget there’s lots more to do in Orlando than just theme parks, so a resort that is fun on its own can save you a bundle and also be a whole lot more fun. Family-sized suites, kitchens, and laundry options bring the comforts of home that take the stress out of a family trip, too.

Wyndham Bonnet Creek offers luxurious condo-style one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom family suites adjacent to Walt Disney World and close to other Orlando attractions. With a full schedule of resort activities, five pool complexes, including a lazy river and water slides, it’s no wonder it ranks No. 4 on Condé Nast Traveler's 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards list of Top Resorts in Orlando.

What to Do in the Flatiron and Union Square With Kids

The adjacent Flatiron District and Union Square neighborhoods are two of Manhattan's most unlikely kid-friendly areas. Even though both are filled with office buildings and chain stores, there are lots of amenities for families if you know where to look. Both boast beautiful parks with destination playgrounds, a great selection of family restaurants, and one-of-a-kind attractions like the interactive Museum of Mathematics, kid-lit haven Books of Wonder and the statue-filled Lego Store.

Because the nabes encompass less than a mile together, families can easily explore both in one day, even with a short-attention-span toddler in tow. Of course with so many things to see, do and experience in this 15-block stretch from 11th to 26th Streets between Fifth and Park Avenues, you'll probably need more than just a day to hit all our recommended stops.

Weekend Fun for Philly Kids: Outdoors, Women's History, Holi March 23-24

No matter what Punxsutawney Phil said, there is no doubt about it. According to the calendar, it's the first official weekend of spring in the Delaware Valley. Welcome it with some great family activities found in our events calendar.

With spring's arrival, Philly families can find many opportunities to get outdoors. Those who enjoy fishing can cast a line at Norristown Farm Park or Linvilla Orchards. Animal lovers can construct a bird house for bluebirds or meet a whitetail deer named Max. Other interesting activities include creating paper kites from recyclable materials at Wissahickon Environmental Center or trying archery at Warwick County Park.

Museums also offer engaging experiences. National Constitution Center recognizes Women's History Month with exhibits, displays, and an educational music video workshop inspired by Lady Gaga while Please Touch Museum celebrates the Hindu spring festival known as Holi. Kids visiting the Museum can expect to see traditional Indian dancers, henna art, and a confetti color throwing party.

Please Touch the Art at the New Snark Park Exhibit at Hudson Yards

With all the immersive, kid-friendly art experiences that come through town (like the Color Factory, or last year's Dream Machine), New York City kids could be excused for expecting every must-see art exhibit to be interactive and kid-friendly. NYC's latest immersive exhibit, designed for kids to touch, explore, and interact with the art, is the inaugural installation at Snark Park, entitled "Lost and Found."

Located inside 20 Hudson Yards, the newly opened and highly anticipated seven-story retail center in Midtown East, Snark Park is a permanent retail and art installation space located on the second floor of the mall.
