SINGAPORE (Reuters Life!) – Many cities can be overwhelming for young travelers, but some are as much fun for the kids as the grown-ups.
Lonely Planet’s “Travel With Children” guide lists the top 10 cities around the world that are ideal to visit with children. This list is not endorsed by Reuters:
1. OAXACA, MEXICO
This colorful Mexican city is pint-sized, charming and fun to explore on foot. A central plaza provides plenty of run-around space for kids and there’s a vibrant market. www.visitmexico.com

There still seems to be the erroneous impression “out there” in the world that Mexico may not be a safe enough travel destination. I bring this up because Oaxaca, Mexico is cited here by Lonely Planet as being a top travel destination for families with children. I can’t imagine that this recommendation would be made IF there was a concern about safety!
