With so many family vacation choices, it can be hard to decide. Here are some that can truly offer something for families with children of all ages.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
There is a reason why the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park in the US. There is so much fun to be had. Hiking trails for all ability levels abound throughout the park. Great food, restaurants, horseback riding, fishing, and friendly people all make for a great family vacation. The scenic mountains will leave you in awe. Make sure to take a lot of pictures because you will want to capture these memories. For a comfortable stay, make sure to book a great hotel such as Bluegreen Resorts Mountain Loft, located at 2,200 feet in elevation in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The hotel boasts spacious accommodation and the whole family will enjoy Ripley’s Aquarium and Dollywood located close to the hotel.
Often considered one of the wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon can be an exciting destination full of adventure for the whole family. A scenic helicopter ride and lunch in the canyon is an activity that future vacations will have a hard time living up to. For another adventure, try rafting the river that runs through the canyon. Nearby Las Vegas offers extra activities for adults and children alike.
Old West in Arizona
If you want to get away from it all and for you and your children to enjoy an Old West experience, then Arizona is the place to do it. Kids activities include arts and crafts, horse-riding lessons, cattle wrangling and more, all based on age and ability level. For adults, there are guided horse rides, riding lessons, great food and more. This can be combined with a trip to the Grand Canyon or Las Vegas, which are both located nearby.
For a family beach vacation, it is hard to beat Hawaii. Hawaii offers many water sports and great food, and there is something for everyone. Children will be delighted by the water parks and can take part in numerous camps that offer fun activities, while adults can relax and enjoy activities more suited to them. At night, you can enjoy an authentic luau. Be sure to schedule a kayak lesson around your island or even a whale-watching trip. Families can also enjoy feeding dolphins or even swimming with them! Hawaii offers both the feeling of escapism and the exotic without the cost or hassle of international travel.
Wherever you decide to have your next family vacation, the important thing is that you will be spending it with your loved ones and creating memories that last a lifetime. Bon voyage!
