🍟 Best Place to Eat: “We loved Relais de l’Entrecôte. Steak frites are the only thing on the menu, and it’s unlimited (perfect if you have hungry teenagers!). Get there before it opens – they don’t take reservations and the lines are long! Also, no Paris trip is complete without a trip to Angelina for hot chocolate.”

🧺 Best Thing to Do: “Our absolute favourite thing to do in Paris is buy picnic provisions at Rue Cler and make our way to the lawn in front of the Eiffel Tower for a picnic.”

🖼️ Mother–Daughter Trip Tip: “To have little ones enjoy museums like the Louvre and d’Orsay, I recommend the scavenger hunt Airbnb experience. It was one of our favourite things during this trip! Also, don’t miss the cute little marionette theatre and jousting carousel in Luxembourg Gardens.”

Our experience with Rachael was amazing. Not only are her photos incredible but she was SO great with my five-year-old, making her feel comfortable and confident (and therefore, producing great photos!). When it comes to booking vacation sessions, Flytographer is just simply the best in the biz – hands down. Their system is organized, and they have top-notch photographers and a quick turnaround time.” – Brittny

2. New York City, USA

My daughter and I are huge theatre nerds with a particular love of musicals. She turned seven in February, and to celebrate, we spent five days in NYC and crammed five Broadway shows into our travel schedule. 🎭 A lot of great memories of our trip remain, but the experiences we shared at the Broadway shows are my favourite. I’m so glad that my daughter enjoys live theatre as much as I do, and the chance to experience five wonderful shows in such an exciting city was a huge thrill for both of us.

This was such a wonderful experience! As a single mother who travels with my young daughter, there’s usually been very little photographic evidence (other than a handful of not-so-great selfies) that I went along on our trips. I’m thrilled that this adventure was captured so beautifully in photographs of both of us together; the pictures make a very special keepsake.” – Jody

3. Florence, Italy

Italy stands out as one of Europe’s top destinations for family adventures, and when it comes to choosing the perfect Italian city for your next getaway, charming and walkable Florence tops our list. 📝 Nestled around the picturesque Arno River, Florence offers a treasure trove of experiences for mother-daughter trips. Wander through its boutique-lined cobblestone streets, visit museums, admire ancient cathedrals, and linger in cozy cafés. ☕️ For a serene escape, venture behind the historic Pitti Palace to discover the Boboli Gardens, where centuries-old oak trees, elaborate fountains, and lush rose gardens await. 🌷🪻 Mother-daughter vacations with little ones should note that, while the gardens are perfect for exploration, some areas may be challenging for strollers due to stone steps and gravel paths. Here are our top 10 places to take photos in Florence.

4. Tokyo, Japan

Embarking on a mother-daughter getaway to Tokyo opens up a world of excitement for both young and old alike. Tokyo is a place to discover the diverse facets of Japanese culture, both traditional and modern. 🏯 From Japanese national parks, Shinto and Buddhist temples, and Edo-period delights to futuristic skyscrapers, Japan’s capital is a stage for a wonderful mother-daughter vacation and often ranks among travellers’ favourite bucket list cities in Asia. It’s easier than you think to travel to Tokyo with a little one. The city is well equipped for kids, and with a bit of planning, your trip to Tokyo will be remembered for all the right reasons. Read on for our top tips for travelling to Tokyo with children:

  1. Plan your arrival ✈️
    The long flight to Tokyo can be taxing, especially on little ones. Make your arrival as easy as possible either by booking a boutique hotel near the airport, allowing your family to get a good night’s sleep before taking the trip to Tokyo, which exceeds an hour, or by booking a shuttle from the airport to your Tokyo hotel, putting off maneuvering through public transportation until you’re feeling well rested. It’s all about wellness on your mother-daughter trips!
  2. Stay near one of Tokyo’s transport hubs 🚉
    Staying near one of Tokyo’s major hubs will make getting around the city even easier. Stay near the Ikebukuro, Shibuya, Shinbashi, Shinjuku, or Tokyo stops for the most well-connected areas of the city. With each fare-paying adult, two kids between the ages of one and six can ride Tokyo’s public transportation for free. Infants under one always ride free of charge.
  3. Pack light 🧳
    It’s easy to purchase necessities for a girls’ trip in Tokyo, so packing light is completely doable. Many of Tokyo’s subway stations don’t have elevators, so you’ll need to be able to carry what you bring with you up and down stairs if you take public transportation. Keep it light, and a day trip around Tokyo will be easy.

🍔 Best Place to Eat: “Etta was amazing!”

🎶 Best Thing to Do: “The Taylor Swift concert at SOFI stadium.”

🚙 Mother–Daughter Trip Tip: “We used Rob’s Rides for the absolute best car service during our trip! They are incredible, and we felt safe and had a blast our whole trip!”

Jessica is such an incredible photographer and person! She is exactly what we hoped for and more. She is extremely talented but also extremely kind, outgoing, and so fun to work with. I was thrilled to find Flytographer through another recommendation. We travel a lot and have struggled to find great photographers in new cities. This made it a breeze to find someone with our style in any location.” – Heather

10. Banff, Canada

“My favourite daughter (I only have one child) is growing up into a teenager. Years pass by faster than her age. I know someday (hopefully not very soon) she will be living independently from me and will probably choose to hang out with her friends more. So, I wanted to take as much quality time with her as I possibly could and to well document it in photographs so I can look back on our fun and loving time together by just looking at the photos. Lyndsay became part of our photographs and memories. Because every time we look at our photos, it reminds us of her behind the camera lens who captured our moments.” – Gemma
