Travel Tips with a Baby

Traveling with a child, of any age, is not for the faint of heart. Of course, what you need to bring or where to go depends on the age of the child. Discover some of our favorite hacks for traveling with a baby and the best friendly family experiences worldwide.

Some say the easiest age to travel with is newborn to 2 years. Keep them busy without a screen for as long as possible with small toys that will stick to the plane window! If you're traveling international, all children need passports, even infants.

One of the most useful tips: be prepared. The packing lists and travel days are long, but the years are short & quality family time is worth it. Booking with MVT makes getting their easier and the memories more magical! 

Outdoor Education

Make new discoveries together: traveling is an educational experience for both adult and child! Where you decide to go will influence your child's environment! For a family vacation, it may be helpful to decide where to go based on interests. Choose where the next vacation will be based on what you (or the kids) want to do. 

A slew of research shows that studying out in nature also spawns calmer, clearer minds and improves learning. In the wide-open wilds of southwest Montana, birdsong doubles as school bells and Rock Creek’s meadow-lined banks become a classroom.


The Ranch at Rock Creek offers art classes by the creek to show how green spaces spur creativity. Visits to the apiary illuminate how bees sustain food supplies. Fly-fishing guides preach catch-and-release and lead cleanups to remove refuse from nearby rivers. And hikes along surrounding trails reveal views of the Rockies, national forests, wilderness areas, and prairies that extend to forever.
