At an age when everything feels like an adventure there are many destinations that will capture a toddler's imagination.

With slightly more flexibility that with a baby, many of our destinations, hotels and itinerary ideas are perfect for keeping toddlers entertained and wearing out little legs in a safe and exciting environment.
