A favorite day trip from Marrakech is a visit to the Ourika Valley – our kids love it. For families that love the outdoors and want a relaxing day out of the city, check this out.
Visiting the Sahara is a must for many people. But, go into the experience fully aware especially when kids are involved so that you can have the best trip possible.
The Dades Valley and Todra Gorge are a popular stop along the way to the Sahara – and our family might argue that we enjoy spending time here more than in the desert itself!
The “blue city,” this mountain village has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. It’s a fun place to explore with kids with its colorful streets and friendly locals.
A short journey from Tangier, the city of Asilah makes for a good family-friendly retreat. If you would rather not have the bustle of city life but ease of access consider stopping here.
