But a growing number of B&Bs across America are now becoming kid-friendly.
They’re not just a Bed & Breakfast for your kids, but they offer creative packages that allow them to play and explore without disturbing the other guests—or you.
The Bentwood Inn in Jackson Hole, Wyoming offers a sing-along for kids at dinner.
The Sandbar in Nags Head, North Carolina allows kids the use of bicycles and kayaks.
In Sparta, Wisconsin, the Justin Trails Inn lets children go on llama walks, along with a scavenger hunt.
At the Horse & Hen in Hayden, Colorado, kids actually get to pitch in with the farm chores.
Do the kids like crayons? If so, take the family to the Lafayette Inn. The B&B is just a mile from the Crayola factory.
My favorite is the Katy Trail in Rocheport, Missouri.
Kids (and parents who want to relive their childhoods) get to stay in a converted railroad boxcar and canoe down the Missouri River.
