Need an idea for a new vacation for the family instead of just a plain old beach road trip? Check out these destinations that are all family friendly for all ages to enjoy!
Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida
The happiest place on Earth is still living up to its moto here in Orlando, Florida after it’s 45 years of existence. Home to the most popular theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom. On a hot Summer’s day if you need a cool down, there are also two water parks to choose from as well: Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. I think its safe to say that kids will be obsessed with this place so be prepared with lots of sunscreen to bare the sun while waiting in lines for rides. The two most popular parks happen to be the Magic Kingdom, with a center piece of Cinderella’s Castle, and Epcot, which is dedicated to the celebration of human achievement. If you end up having time to spare, don’t miss out on a nearby theme park called Universal Studios and head to the infamous Harry Potter World to get a taste of the butter beer everyone raves about.
Disneyland, Anaheim, California
Disneyland is the original Walt Disney theme park that first opened July of 1955. The infamous quote that is on a plaque right inside states: “Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.” They couldn’t have stated a more accurate statement because this will truly transport you into another world of pure imagination. Walt first had the vision of creating a place where both adults and children were able to come and enjoy different activities together while he was at a merry go round with his family. Disneyland is consisted of two theme parks: Disneyland and California Adventure. Also, the centerpiece of Disneyland just so happens to be Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. Here, there are many fun things to see and do and will keep your children entertained well so this trip to imagination land will be a splendid idea!
Of course the infamous Grand Canyon that is recognized on the UNESCO World Heritage Site has made the list for great family vacations because its such an awe inspiring place. With over 6 million visitors per year, be sure do some research about when the best time is to go because you won’t be the only ones. The canyons run 277 miles long, 18 miles wide, and a mile deep and dates back to about 6 million years to give you a perspective of how spectacular the wonders of this world are made of. This is one of those places where you should visit without a doubt once you learn more about it, so be sure to book the Grand Canyon as your next vacation with the family today!
Yellowstone National Park
If you’re looking for a nature inspired family vacation, the Yellowstone National Park should be close to the top of that list. With over 2.2 million acres full of hot springs, verdant forests, skyrocketing geysers, steep mountains, stunning waterfalls, and wildlife such as buffalo, elk and grizzly bears (plus so much more), then this park suits your fancy. Back in 1872, President Ulysses S. Grant signed this park as its first national park the in United States and the first established in the world. Be sure to check out Yellowstone Lake, Mammoth Hot Springs, and the Old Faithful geyser during your visit!
The District of Columbia, Washington D.C.’s formal name and capital of the United States, has an average of over 20 million visitors a year, making it one of the most visited in the world. If you truly want to get to know more about the United States of America, this is the first place you should look. There is a plethora of renowned museums, significant monuments, and powerful history to soak in while you’re here so don’t be shy. The best time of the year to visit is in the month of May due to the least amount of tourist traffic. Come visit this “city of southern efficiency and northern charm” with your family to get a grasp on why the United States are here today.
