Top baby-friendly summer adventure spots in the US

This summer, take flight and hit the road with your co-pilot to these far-flung places and out-of-town spaces that welcome your sidekick to explore. 

Pro Tip: “Travel light” can feel like nearly impossible advice when your co-pilot’s along for the ride. The good news is, we’ve got your back with the latest (and lightest) addition to the Bugaboo family: the all-new Butterfly stroller. 

Ultra compact with an ever-convenient one-second fold, the Butterfly is the ultimate stroller for jet-setting sidekicks, whether you’re taking on your bustling town or embarking on a summer trip away from home. Best of all, the Butterfly packs maximum storage for all of your on-the-go essentials and folds down to fit in your overhead bin or under your seat on the subway.


The American Museum of Natural History - New York, NY

Invite your favorite dinosaur enthusiast to marvel at the prehistoric wonders that await at The American Museum of Natural History, from a towering T-Rex to a mesmerizing seasonal shark exhibit. Watch their eyes widen as you move through the museum’s Fossil Halls, featuring casts and fossils of curly-tusked wooly mammoths, suspended shark jaws, and the Titanosaur’s seemingly-endless tail. Best of all, you and your sidekick can weave in and out between the displays dotted throughout each room with ease thanks to the Butterfly’s sleek frame.

Please Touch Museum - Philadelphia, PA

The Please Touch Museum welcomes your curious co-pilot to go ahead and pick things up through engaging hands-on exhibits. From a pint-sized grocery store to a toddlers-only fairy tale garden, your sidekick can immerse themselves in a variety of enriching experiences with a single trip. If temps are particularly steamy, venture just outside of the city to Sesame Place, a beloved Sesame Street-themed water park tucked away in the Philly suburbs. On a day full of so much activity, lean on the Butterfly’s ample underseat storage to keep snacks and refreshments when your sidekick’s ready for a break. 

Georgia Aquarium - Atlanta, Georgia

Bring your budding marine biologist even closer to the majestic sharks, giant whales, and technicolor fish they can’t help but adore. In addition to its awe-inspiring community of sea creatures, The Georgia Aquarium features a Toddler Time program. Your co-pilot can sing, snack, craft, and enjoy under-sea stories in a panoramic ballroom with stunning views of giant whale sharks and gliding manta rays. When naptime rolls around, simply unsnap the Butterfly’s reclinable seat and stroll through the gift shop while your sidekick snoozes.

San Diego Zoo - San Diego, California

Take your mini explorer to the San Diego Zoo for toddler-friendly adventures that bring them face-to-face with the wildlife they love. The zoo’s Wildlife Explorers Basecamp is full of interactive play areas inspired by natural habitats and designed for children to climb, jump, learn, and play. When they need a break to snack, let your sidekick watch tropical birds bounce from branch to branch in one of three expansive aviaries. When the afternoon sun shines bright on the zoo’s walking paths, fold down the Butterfly’s big sun canopy to keep your co-pilot shaded and cool. 

Hull-O Farms - New York

Adventure with your co-pilot to the breathtaking Catskills Region, where the country awaits your sidekick with lots of opportunities to experience the fun of farm life. At Hull-O Farms, your co-pilot can feed friendly pigs, baby calves, and rabbits, gather freshly-laid eggs, and enjoy the beauty of the simple life, complete with cozy, onsite accommodations for your whole family. As you navigate through farmland, the Butterfly’s four-wheel suspension keeps the bumps at bay so your sidekick can bask in a smooth ride through the countryside. 

No matter where you and your co-pilot head to in the coming summer months, you can stroll out and travel light with the Bugaboo Butterfly. Share your most memorable explorations with us on Instagram using the hashtag #WithaBugaboo.
