    Travel + Leisure: America's Most Family-Friendly Airports

    The list includes MCO - not sure there's any surprise with this considering traffic to see Mickey, Shamu, and the rest; DTW; SEA; MSP; DEN; CLT; MIA - article claims easy access, but that's not my sentiment over MIA; DFW; BWI; BOS; PHL; LAS - should children be there?! ;); PHX; and JFK, which I'm not sure is anybody-friendly!

    :)

    LAS is a great place for the kids to play the slots without needing to get into the casinos.

    I'm pretty sure any such list would be a stretch. Mostly it's an exercise in how many airports you can fabricate an excuse to include.

    SYR has a charming but dated airplane play area on the baggage claim leave, land side.

    Don't all airports have those carnival rides that are also used to deliver checked bags? I think the general theme is to ride around while avoiding having bags dropped on you. The best ones are the ones where the riders disappear in a hole in the wall for the "haunted house" tour of the inner workings of the airport ramp area.

    I thought those were napping areas.

    Did you have bad dreams during your naps?

    I dreamt that I woke up in Rome and was arrested.
