Next, the Roberts head down the Seine River for a view of Paris how it was meant to be seen and end up at Notre Dame Cathedral. Finally, the Roberts family finds the Eiffel Tower and it’s time to climb, picnic, ride mules and go-karts and enjoy one of the greatest monuments in the world.
#202 New York City:
New York City is the epitome of fast-paced and with so much to see and do, our host family has to plan their trip very carefully. Riding the subways proves an efficient method of transportation as the Roberts family visits the major attractions like the Empire State Building, Times Square and Rockefeller Center, but there’s much more to New York than attractions. A stroll through New York’s ethnic neighborhoods is the perfect follow-up to learning about immigration at the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. A visit to the United Nations teaches the family about diplomacy as they fight to get a cab during the theatre rush on Broadway. And, the city’s frenetic pace fades away as the host family gallops through Central Park in a horse carriage.
London is world-renowned for its history rich attractions and fast-paced activity, but how will it do entertaining two young boys. The Roberts family finds out as they traverse the city by tube and double-decker bus learning all about its royal history at Buckingham Palace, its military past at the Cabinet War Rooms and its colonial ambitions at the British Museum. The host-family takes part in London tradition at a formal afternoon tea, a sun-soak in Hyde Park and hanging out with punks in Piccadilly Circus before heading to West End for a play. And they manage to see a few of London’s famous landmarks…Big Ben, London Eye, Trafalgar Square.
#204 Ireland: Dublin:
Ireland’s biggest city, Dublin, is vibrant and has many stories to tell if you take the time to listen and that’s just what the Roberts family has in mind. In Dublin, discover the long and often turbulent history with the English at Dublin Castle and Kilmainham Jail, get a taste of hops history at the Guinness factory, and take a break for some kid’s activities at St. Stephen’s Green, the Natural History Museum and Dublin Zoo.
#205 Scotland – The Scottish Highlands:
Scotland has long been known for its deeply rooted heritage. In this episode, the Roberts family heads for the hills…the Scottish Highlands that is. After a brief visit to Edinburgh, it’s “All Aboard!” as the Roberts head north by train through the craggily hills and open plateaus of the Scottish Highlands. Once there, the family finds all sorts of diversion as they explore the ancient and majestical forest, play in the snow, feed reindeer, taste haggis and try to get a snapshot of the famous Loch Ness monster.
#206 The Bahamas – Nassau & Paradise Island:
With all the fun and sun in the Bahamas, it would be hard not to have fun and the Roberts find out just how much there is to do. In Nassau, discover the island’s pirating past at Pirates of Nassau Museum and spend the day slipping and sliding on Atlantis’ adventure water park. Then it’s time to find out what’s under the water on a snorkeling trip where the host family gets up close and a little too personal with a group of sharks. To experience a gentler creature from the sea, the Roberts jump into the water with some friendly dolphins and frolic in the waves on Cable Beach.
#207 Florida: Miami & The Everglades:
With crazy art deco architecture painted in an array of colors, Miami is a fiesta all the time. The Roberts finds time to join the party cruising South Beach and people watching in outdoor cafes. Miami is surrounded by the ocean. Find out what’s best in the water on board an amphibious vehicle, playing in the waves, and checking out an aquarium with our host family. Next, they head inland to explore the Everglades where they come face-to-face with alligators on an exuberant airboat ride and a hike through the backcountry.
#208 Ireland: The Castles and Cliffs of County Clare:
Known for its rugged limestone rock formations and ancient castles, County Clare offers all sorts of off-the-tourist-track exploration, and the Roberts are thrilled to discover it all. Explore tall sea cliffs at the famous Cliffs of Moher and head beneath the limestone for an underground adventure in the Aillwee Caves on The Burren. Although the kids may not be as impressed as adults by ancient dolmens, the giant castles of Clare like Knappogue and Bunratty are sure to spark their imagination of days gone-by filled with knights and kings.
#209 Florida: Space Coast & Orlando:
Launching into space or flying down the rails of some of the world’s most incredible roller coasters…the Space Coast and Orlando is built for traveling families. In this episode, the Roberts visit Kennedy Space Center and watch as astronauts hurl into space aboard the Space Shuttle. After that it’s time for some super thrills of their own with visits to Orlando’s big theme parks. To complete their time, the Roberts kayak downriver to spend some one-on-one time with a manatee family.
#210 England – Bath & Stonehenge:
Beyond London, England has a much slower pace and a more natural surround. In Southern England, the Roberts discover area history in the Roman town of Bath and a tour of the world’s most magnificent pre-historic relics, Stonehenge and meet the locals as a game of cricket is explained. In a boat tour up the Avon River, the Roberts enjoy the relaxing lifestyle of the English countryside.
#211 England – The Lake District:
After hopping a train to the north, the Roberts find a world of literature awaiting in the English Lake District, an area so abundant with beauty it inspired celebrated authors like William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. The Roberts get a chance to explore some of the area stories at the World of Beatrix Potter Museum and the natural surrounds as they bump through the countryside in an off-road adventure, steam down the lake and up the mountains and get to know some of the area’s woodland and lake creatures.
#212 The Florida Keys:
The Florida Keys has been the subject of mystery and intrigue for many decades. Closer to Cuba than to the other United States, Key West is known for its independent spirit. The Roberts check it out by train in a tour of the sites, by boat at sunset and by bike. Be entertained by the vaudeville atmosphere of the famous Key West Sunset Ceremony, walk the plank at the pirate museum, hop on a bike and pedal your way through the revelers on Duval Street. The exciting atmosphere of Key West is contrasted by the quiet beaches as they head north to Key Largo where they get a slimy kiss from a friendly sea lion.
#213 Ireland: Heritage and Culture in the Southwest:
Located in Southwestern Ireland, Killarney is a land of many charms. Ask any native and they will tell you that the Kingdom of Killarney is a paradise in waiting. Using Killarney as a base, the Roberts hop a horse cart to Killarney National Park where they storm Ross Castle, drive the Dingle Peninsula where they learn about local marine life including Fungi the Dolphin and head to Blarney Castle where they, of course, kiss the stone and get the gift of gab.
#101 Puerto Rico:
Explore the rich history and culture in the colonial ports of Ponce and Old San Juan where host-kids Nathan and Seamus find adventure playing pirates in the old colonial fort of El Morro. Then it’s off to find frogs in El Yunque, the Caribbean National Forest and explore the underground caves of Rio Camuy. Finally, The Roberts family finds time to relax on the beaches of Vieques Island, a small enclave that exudes the ambiance of a by-gone era in the Caribbean.
#102 Hawaii: Oahu:
There are two very different sides to the island of Oahu – the fast-paced, activity packed Waikiki and the laid-back North Shore and the Roberts family are determined to discover both. The confluence of cultures in Hawaii is apparent at the International Marketplace where the host family tries different cuisines ranging from Japanese noodles to Hawaiian traditional dishes. To learn more about the history and culture of Hawaii, the Roberts head over to the Polynesian Cultural Center, where they taste coconut bread and learn to throw a spear. For a more recent view of history, it’s on to Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial. With all this land activity, it’s easy to forget that Hawaii is known for its undersea life. But our hosts have you covered with excursions below the waves at SeaLife Park where they come face to face with dolphins and stingrays.
#103 Mexico: Cancun and the Caribbean Coast:
Packed with family-friendly attractions and plenty of sunshine, Cancun is a perfect family destination, but is there more to this rugged coast than just fun in the sun? The Roberts find out as they explore the city of Cancun with aquariums, pyramids and late-night turtle encounters and venture across the ocean to Isla Mujeres. Isla Mujeres, a tiny island is what Cancun was like decades ago. Drive around the small villages in a golf cart to snorkel and swim with dolphins.
#104 Hawaii: Big Island:
The Big Island of Hawaii is big and the Roberts family is determined to see every part of it. As the newest island in Hawaiian island chain, the Big Island is still growing with lava constantly steaming into the Pacific Ocean to form land. The host family gets face-to-face with the world’s most active volcano, Kilauea, at Volcanoes National Park where they hike through lava tubes, feel heat oozing through hardened lava fields, and learn about Pele, goddess of fire. To find out more about ancient Hawaii, the Roberts head to the City of Refuge where they’re greeted by tiki heads and play lava rock checkers. After scouring through the fresh fruits at Hilo’s farmer’s market, the Roberts find the perfect food, the malasada. To finish their feast, the Roberts head to a sunset luau.
#105 Mexico: The Mayan Yucatan:
Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula is the site of major clashes between the indigenous Mayan people and the Spanish colonialists and the attractions here reflect it. The Roberts learn the Mayan history at the huge pyramid complex of Chichen-Itza where they research the acoustics on a Mayan ball court, climb the pyramids and study a colony of leaf-cutter ants. Then it’s on to soak in the culture at Spanish enclaves like Izamal, Valladolid and Merida where Mayan traditional dances take place in centuries old colonial squares. Explore lively markets and take horse drawn carriages through the colonial centers.
#106 Hawaii: Maui:
On Maui, the progression of Hawaii’s economy becomes apparent as our host family discovers Lahaina’s whaling history before boarding the sugar cane train. Then it’s on to explore the island’s amazing natural beauty by land on Ka’anapali Beach and on the winding Road to Hana where the Roberts picnic by waterfall and discover secluded black sand beaches and by sea at the Maui Ocean Center and on a snorkel cruise to Lanai where spinner dolphins leap from the water in a graceful dance. A sunset luau where cliff divers plummet from Black Rock to the ocean below and fire dancers strut their stuff provides the perfect ending to their Maui adventure.
#107 Mexico – Southern Caribbean Coast:
After heading south to the Mayan pyramid complexes of Tulum and Coba, it’s obvious this history-laden coast has a much deeper side. But fun in the sun prevails as the host family enjoys an eco-waterpark, snorkels through underwater caves, boards a submarine for a tour of the undersea life, browses the shopping enclave of Playa Del Carmen and enjoys the powder white beaches of the Caribbean in a beach hut with no TV or air conditioning!
#108 Hawaii: Kauai:
Hawaii’s island of Kauai is known for its dramatic natural surrounds and the Roberts family heads out to see it all. Board a boat up the Wailua River to the fabulous Fern Grotto where water drips from upside down plants at one of the wettest places on earth. Check out the salt beds and cross a swinging bridge in the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, Waimea Canyon. Head off-the-beaten-path over the bridges of Kauai’s north shore past Hanalei and end up at the base of the Na Pali Coast where Ke’e beach offers the perfect spot to check out Kauai’s marine life including sea turtles.
#109 The Virgin Islands:
The U.S. Virgin Islands are composed of three very different islands, St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John, and in this episode the Roberts family are hunting down the very best that each has to offer. On St. Thomas, the host family discovers a pirate-y past at Blackbeard’s Castle before diving below the waves on a real submarine. On St. Croix, sugar cane reigns supreme as the Roberts take a tour of an old plantation and a rum factory. On St. John, green is keen as the family hunkers down in tents at an eco-camp and explores the Virgin Islands National Park. The British Virgin Islands are known as the Caribbean’s Best Kept Secret and the Roberts family is going to find out why. Tortola’s sweeping green mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to hidden coves like Cane Garden Bay where the host-family finds the slow-pace a perfect base for a family vacation, while hiding out from a nearby hurricane! Trips to West End to learn about Tortola’s pirating past and the south shore to come face-to-face with dolphins complete this island paradise. Next, it’s off to Virgin Gorda where giant boulders provide plenty of hidden pools and grottoes to explore at the Baths.
#110 Hawaii: Molokai:
To experience the true Hawaii, our host-family is off to Molokai where it’s said time stands still. A trip to Halawa Valley and a tour of a macadamia farm provides the Roberts with a look at Hawaii’s agricultural side while views over the world’s highest sea-cliffs down to Kalaupapa Peninsula teaches the family about Molokai’s leprosy past and the great achievement of Father Damien. A stop at the post office to send a Coconut Postcard proves amusing and the host kids love flying a kite from a windy outpost on the island’s west side.
“In this edition of the acclaimed Travel with Kids series, the Roberts family visits the crystal blue waters and white sand beaches of the Bahamas—an easy 30-minute flight from Fort Lauderdale, FL. First stop is the gateway island of New Providence, where the capital city of Nassau is located. Mom, dad, and their two boys learn a bit of exciting local history during a visit to a pirate museum, explore crafts markets and duty-free shops, and go to a huge aquarium, where they meet friendly dolphins, and see a giant manta ray (the kids get to go “backstage” to see what it takes to feed the critter every day). A snorkeling adventure at Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas resort includes a brief dip in the water (with sharks nearby!). The family also enjoy quiet times on the nearly deserted shores of Cat Island, and on Grand Bahama Island, where they explore the natural environment via a kayak tour through Lucayan National Park. Split into two half-hour episodes, the program provides additional information via intermittent “pop up” facts. DVD extras include a “Trip Planner” with segments on family-friendly accommodations, travel tips and resources; a “Bahamas at Home” featurette with recipes and crafts; and a bloopers reel. Highly recommended.” Three & 1/2 Stars -Video Librarian

“…the Roberts family takes in the charm and camaraderie of the Emerald Isle. Although thematically similar, each title in the series has a slightly different emphasis reflecting the distinctive characteristics of the locations visited. Ireland finds the Roberts’ joining local musicians at a pub (many are family-friendly establishments), where traditional Irish music is played with drum, fiddle, accordion, flute, and other instruments. While providing specific tips for traveling with children, the film showcases the scenic countryside and various tourist attractions, including the town of Killarney and its horse-drawn cart rides to Ross Castle, and Killarney National Park, with its lakes, bogs, mountains, and woodlands. And, of course, the foursome visits Blarney Castle in County Cork, built in 1446 and home of the famous Blarney Stone, where tradition requires one to climb to the tower where the landmark is located, flip over on one’s back, and kiss the stone over a small gap in the wall about 100 yards above the ground. Highly recommended.” Three and Half Stars – Video Librarian
“Just the ticket for parents considering Ireland as a family vacation destination. Entertaining—and empowering!” – Booklist
“I have to admit that I am a huge fan of the Travel With Kids series. I watched the Travel With Kids – New York DVD and thought it was really well done.
Well, Travel With Kids – Ireland is an even better DVD!
I can understand what the film makers are trying to do, which is to demystify the age old problem of how to have a fun vacation when you have a couple of small children in tow.Unfortunately by the title alone they will miss a huge segment of people who would really enjoy this series. You don’t have to be traveling with two toddlers to really get a great deal out of this series.
The videography is stunning. You get a real feel for the places that the intrepid Roberts family visit. Many travelogue type DVD’s contain wonderful ideas of places to visit, most though are far outside of the realms of reality for all but the fittest ex Green Beret! Travel With Kids takes a different approach, there are so many wonderful sights, sounds, and experiences that can be found without the assistance of Sherpa Tensing.
Ireland is a country that has certainly seen its fair share of conflict, and its history is rich and bountiful.
Travel With Kids – Ireland, in fact the entire series, contains really good and really practical advice. It is not a guide on how to survive on $10 a day, nor is it a guide to the most exotic (read expensive) ways that a tourist can lighten their wallets. It is much more about value, a family of four can have the trip of a lifetime without breaking the bank.
This episode features Dublin, Killarney, and Dingle. It also explores the countryside around these cities and delves into some of Ireland’s rich history. From music to food, from staying in a real castle, to visiting the Guinness brewery, you have it all!
I think one of the great values in the Travel With Kids series is that prior to a vacation you can get an idea of some things to do while you are there. Many people say, oh I never plan a vacation, I just see where it leads me. That is a sure fire way to miss out on something that may just make the difference between a vacation and something that is remembered for years to come.
I give full marks to Travel With Kids – Ireland, and even if you are not planning a trip soon, watch it and vacation vicariously.” – Simon Barrett, Blogger News Network
“Their latest piece covers a trip to Paris where the couple visits numerous landmarks and various places around the city, all while providing helpful commentary filled with historical information and tips for parents who may find themselves preparing for a similar trip. The best part about this series, though, is that its’ more than just a simple, “Here’s what we did” short home movie.
Each hour-long episode features a selected city somewhere in the world and extensive information for preparing for the trip and making the most of it while there. Little things like designing flash cards with famous art pieces on them to keep the kids engaged at the Louvre and a brief breakdown of the lines at the Eiffel Tower help prepare other parents planning to make the trip themselves for the trip.
The couple is likeable and friendly, their kids are precocious, and the sites are breathtaking. Anyone looking for a video guide to travelling the streets of Paris with their young ones in tow can’t do better than this.” – Bloggernews.net
