OK, raise your hand if you like going to places where you can have a drink, let loose, and listen to live music. Now raise your other hand if you think you need to get a babysitter to do these things.
Now put both your hands down!
Who says you can’t take your kids to the saloon or tavern and listen to music while you put back a few cold ones? We certainly don’t! In fact, a prime mission of our blog is to show other parents how we travel with OUR kids, which means showing that it is totally possible to travel with kids while keeping your Saturday-night self.
I know this sounds crazy to some folks who may be wondering why anybody would want to do this?
Well for one, it is fun for the WHOLE family and having fun together will make you want to travel more often with your children. (Don’t believe me? Just look at the videos and photos of my kids below enjoying live music with us in some extraordinary places below.)
I actually think this is one of the main reasons some parents dislike the idea of traveling with kids – it’s because they don’t plan things that are fun for adults too!
Second, your kids will learn to enjoy these places as you do, which will help them become normal, fun, and well-adjusted adults. If you take the taboo away from these things, then I believe that children will be better equipped to treat these situations responsibly as they grow older. (Though, I still have a few years until this hypothesis gets truly tested. Haha!)
Anyhow, we’ve toured the country and sought out restaurants and taverns with live music in just about every city. That’s just how we roll. And if you want to roll that way too, here are some of our favorite kid-friendly places with live music all across America. (Yes, we’ve taken our kids to all these places. Often more than once if we could swing it!)
That’s a Wrap!
Well, there you have it. These are some of our all-time favorite kid-friendly places with live music that we’ve visited on our travels, but there are so many places we’ve never been that must also have some great live music venues that are family-friendly. Let me know in the comments what is your favorite place with live music for kids!?
