i'll be in stockholm with my two children in october for about a week. last year we were in copenhagen and loved it, hoping we'll also love stockholm!
we are planning on being in stockholm for 5 days, then taking an overnight ferry to helsinki. we'll be in helsinki for 2 days and fly directly home from there.
we are not ambitious travelers, love to enjoy a place, talk to people, have great meals, walk around. and i also need to schedule in plenty of play and relax time for my two 7 year olds. i'll be single parenting 3-4 days in stockholm as my spouse has to fly off for work.
do you think we should plan on a day trip from stockholm, or is there enough to keep us happy for 5 days? is there something amazing outside the city that we should not miss?
