Kimpton Hotels & Resorts announced an exclusive partnership with Micro Kickboard to offer children’s kick scooters at properties around the United States. Kimpton is the first major hotel brand to offer a program of this kind. The Kimpton-designed scooters are an extension of the brand’s bike loaning amenity.
The Kimpton X Micro Kickboard scooters boast a custom design and color scheme, developed by Kimpton’s in-house design team. Two sizes — Mini Deluxe for children 2–5 and Maxi Deluxe for kids 5–12 — and toddler- and youth-sized helmets are available complimentary.
“We are thrilled to partner with Kimpton. Our Maxi and Mini scooters are a great way for children to get outside and explore cities across the U.S., Canada and beyond,” said Julie Hawksworth, CEO, Micro Kickboard. “Scoot to a local restaurant, park, beach, or out for ice cream — the possibilities are endless.”
The participating hotels also offer tips for nearby places ideal for travelers to scoot around and see the sights, with a 20 percent off Kimpton X Micro Kickboard discount rate also on offer.
“At Kimpton we are proud of the unique experiences and unmatched local accessibility we create for our guests. This partnership with Micro Kickboard will make it easier than ever for travelers to explore their destination while making lasting memories with the whole family,” said Kathleen Reidenbach, chief commercial officer, Kimpton. “Beyond that, this partnership is just plain fun. We know kids will have a blast cruising in our stylish Kimpton-designed scooters and parents will love that our scooters get their kids outside and moving.”

A camping trip in a national park or other area away from city lights is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the wonders of the night sky. Children living in cities rarely have a chance to see the myriad of stars that fill the sky, so stargazing can be a new experience to enrich your family travels. These tips will make stargazing fun — and a learning experience as well.
