Why Traveling As a Single Parent Is Important — and How to Plan an Amazing Trip With Your Kids

For years, vacations traditionally meant two parents and kids hitting the road. But these days it’s becoming much more common for just one parent to take the helm. This is due to a variety of factors, including the increase in single-parent households. “In 2017, 29% of children were living in a single-parent household in the U.S.,” says Dyan Mckie, Brand Manager of Family Adventures at Intrepid Travel and a single parent herself. “The change in family dynamics has an immediate impact on the travel industry, which has traditionally focused on the nuclear family.”

Other reasons for just one parent traveling with the kids? Busy schedules in two-parent households (dad can’t get off from work, so mom takes the kids skiing in Colorado) or kids and parents having different interests (dad doesn’t like to scuba, so mom takes her son on a diving trip solo). For these reasons and more, the size and scale of the solo-parent travel market has drastically increased over the past few years.
