The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Web Buzz:

Ditch the hotel, grab the kids and "chillax" in a destination with room for the entire family.


What it does: Kid & Coe offers a curated list of vacation rentals for globe-trotting families. Rent your own home or use the list to find comfortable, kid-friendly residences for the price of a suite or a couple of standard rooms. Big glossy pictures of the home and local tips for big and little travelers await.

What's hot: Home rentals are great for families because they typically are more spacious than a hotel room and have a kitchen and often laundry facilities. Kid & Coe has properties that put kids first. Breathe a motherly sigh of relief at houses and apartments with toy-filled kids bedrooms and grassy backyards approved for play. Don't miss Things to Know within the accommodation listing to get an inside look at a property's perks and the City Scout section with a short, family-focused overview of your destination.

What's not: The site is in beta. Although it already has more than 50 gorgeous destinations, I look forward to more than one accommodation listing per destination. If you are looking for destinations with more choices, try Paris, southwest France, London, New York, Utah, Los Angeles and Brazil.
