On the East coast, New Hampshire is not overly warm, but has nice summer weather. It has kosher food and minyan and plenty of (kid friendly) activities.
where is there kosher food now?

Looking for 7-10 day trip/vacation for DW, myself & a 2 year old. We've been to Rome, Venice, Paris, London, Switzerland already & hoping for some new ideas/suggestions. Can be domestic or international. Thanks in advance

If looking at Europe, Amsterdam + Antwerp.

Or maybe Hawaii.

I'm afraid it'll be too much traveling, & the weather un August is supposed to be rainy & humid

I actually looked into Amsterdam last summer, but seems like you need a maximum of 2 days there. What is there to do in Antwerp?

Maximum time of 2 days in Amsterdam is not true. I spent a week there. In retrospect it was maybe 1day too long. Yould could go on a day trip to Haarlem/Rotterdam/the Hauge of elsewhere in Belgium.

With a kid, unless you are lighting fast you can take your time and fill 4 days easily. Add in a shabbos and a day trip or 2 and it's a week.

Sounds like it might work. Did you write a TR of your trip?

Looking for ideas on sunny warm place to visit (excl FL, CA, AZ, Mexico, Costa Rica, Hawaii) mid January for a week with 2.5 year old? Dont need kosher food but flying time must be less then 15 hrs.

Would like to do a 7 day Caribbean cruise, but hate the idea of spending 150k chase UR points for a cruise costing only $2000 as itís a terrible return.

My flying time limitation excludes: Philippines, Thailand, Australia, Maldives just to name a few.
