Top Adult Only Vacations

Adventure and toddlers usually don’t mix, neither do relaxing and parenting.  Take an adult vacation before you have children and you can thank me later.

Published

Not all vacations are created equally and some are much more children friendly. You should enjoy certain places and things without kids ruining your good times. Adventure and toddlers usually don’t mix, neither do relaxing and parenting.  Take an adult vacation before you have children and you can thank me later.

Maybe you should try and go on a few adventures acting like children before you decide to have children yourself. We advise you take these vacations before you have kids so you can fully enjoy each experience.

 

Napa Valley Wineries

The ultimate adult only vacation destination, Napa Valley is made for middle aged adults.  There are over 250 wineries in Napa Valley and none of them are really kid-friendly. Sipping wine and keeping an eye on hyperactive children don’t usually go together, so maybe you should leave the little ones at home. People go to Napa Valley to enjoy nature, wine and relaxing vibrations. Go on adult vacations without children let you actually unwind and have some naughty fun. Sure vacations with your ids are fun, but come on, who wants kids in Napa?

Paris

Romance and changing diapers usually don’t go hand in hand so why visit the most romantic city in the world with children in tow? Wine, romance and late nights make up a great Paris trip and these are hard activities to do with children. There should be no kids ruining the love on your Parisian adventure. The sites in Paris aren’t the most child friendly wither, what kids want to go to museums and stand in line for hours to go up in the Eiffel Tower? Definitely check out Paris without little ones and fully enjoy the city.  Taking an adult only vacation to Paris is the only way to see the city.

 

Iceland

Iceland is a country full of adventure, intrigue and some dangerous locations, making it the perfect adult only vacation. Hiking an active volcano and scuba diving aren’t your typical child friendly activities. Glaciers may be exciting adventures but not when you are toting a toddler through sharp, jagged ice caves. Enjoy the splendor of Iceland before you have kids or leave them with the in-laws and get some alone time. 

Monte Carlo

Much like Vegas but much classier, Monte Carlo is centered around gambling and nightlife, two things that don’t mix well with little kids. Adults can enjoy the James Bond type resorts and classy evenings on the town. The French Riviera where Monte Carlo sits has long been known as a romantic and glamorous destination so why ruin that vibe with children?

 

Tokyo

Tokyo is a mega metropolis that feels like a utopian future, so why bring kids to ruin that fantasy. Haha, I kid, children are great, but they aren’t perfect for every trip. Tokyo is super crowded and if you have every tried to get kids through a big crowd it can be a nightmare, so avoid that hassle and ditch the kids.  Make your Tokyo trip an adult only destination and you won’t be sorry. 

Dubai

Dubai is the playground for the rich and famous in the Middle East, and it’s not a kid friendly vacation destination. The luxury hotels offer glitz and glamour at the highest end and you know exactly who doesn’t enjoy fancy things? Kids neither enjoy nor respect fancy and fabulous things, so keep the finer things in life away form their dirty little hands. Let your kids enjoy Mickey Mouse and you enjoy the Jewel of the United Arab Emirates.
