Traveling with kids isn’t as straightforward as booking a trip as a couple, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a fantastic time abroad. Of course, the thing that kids are almost always picky about is food, so it’s important to know ahead of time that there will be an abundance of options. Here are some great cities around the world where you and your kids will stay happy.
Montreal is a fantastic city in general, and especially for foodies. There is such a vibrant array of options including classics like Poutine, Bagels, Orange Julep, Pâté Chinois, Dic Ann’s Burger, and Steamé, all of which are options that kids will absolute want to eat, and of course so will Mom and Dad! While there you can also visit the Biodome, Granby Zoo, and Botanical Gardens with the kiddos.
Chicago is one of the best American cities for foodies, and it has so much to offer in addition to the classic deep dish pizza. You can take them to the Skyhigh Cafe for that incredible view and a lovely brunch. You can also visit Hot Doug’s for delicious hot dogs, recommended by Anthony Bourdain himself on No Reservations. Of course, make sure you visit the the Hershey’s Store, Navy Pier, and Brookfield Zoo for fun.
Barcelona has got one thing that most countries can’t beat: tapas. Kids are often finicky, so what’s better than ordering a bunch of small plates of different things to entice them without worrying that they’ll change their minds about what they feel like eating. Make sure to also visit the Chocolate Museum, Museum of Ideas & Inventions, and CosmoCaixa.
Tokyo has the privilege of being home to the most Michelin stars than any other city, and there are also endless fantastic options of delicious eats and street food. While you’re there, visit Gyoza Stadium, which is an amusement park dedicated to the dumplings, Sweets Forest, an impressive dessert emporium, and Alice’s Fancy Dining, a restaurant inspired by Alice in Wonderland.

Buenos Aires is a great city to visit with friends because it is so laid back. It certainly doesn’t hurt that the weather is absolutely fantastic there too. The city is known for its incredible steaks, and kids will go crazy over desserts filled with dulce de leche. Make sure you try La Payuca, Cumana, and Cabana Las Lilas.
