Planning the best family vacations for the whole family can be overwhelming and difficult. How do you make everybody happy?
But planning a vacation should really be fun and exciting! Luckily, there are many places that offer something for everybody in the family. From your sports loving 5-year old to your cell phone obsessed teen there’s going to be something.
So, to make your planning a little easier, these are the 6 best family vacations spots for families and kids of all ages in North America.
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Pack up the family and head to Myrtle Beach for a vacation that will satisfy everyone. Hotels and resorts line the coast that offer affordable rooms or suites so that everybody isn’t cramped in one small area for an entire week. Most of the hotels have their own waterparks, pools, hot tubs, restaurants and arcades, making the hotel itself a vacation.
Head outside to explore the beach and let the kids play in the warm ocean water. Perfect for boogie-boarding and swimming.
Don’t forget to walk along the boardwalk and explore everything it has to offer. If you’re up for a short drive, you can even bring the kids to bigger water parks and amusement parks in the area and let them run wild.
Surprise, surprise. Orlando, Florida is home to Disney World which any kid, or adult, will be thrilled about. Aside from the four theme parks offered in Disney World, the family can enjoy water parks, SeaWorld, LEGOLAND and many other attractions throughout Orlando.
Disney World offers many vacation packages to make your planning even easier. If you need a break from the fast-paced nature of Orlando, take a short drive to one of the many beaches lining the coast and soak up some sun.
Niagara Falls, Ontario
Just imagine sitting with your whole family watching a firework show over the breathtaking Niagara Falls. This can become a reality if you vacation at Niagara Falls, Ontario!
Niagara Falls embraces the tourist culture and has so much for everyone to do. Boat and helicopter tours are offered for the best view of the falls and there is plenty to do in terms of arcades, restaurants, zoos, aquariums and other attractions.
Jellystone Park in Luray, Virginia
Jellystone Park is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It offers camping with a feeling of being home away from home. You can choose to camp in your own tent, bring your RV, or even look into renting a log cabin or cottage depending on your family size.
Whatever your family’s style is, there is an option that will make your comfortable at Jellystone Park.
The site includes a waterpark, mini-golf, laser tag, an arcade and many more activities to keep the kids entertained. Then, enjoy a campfire with the family at your own personal fire pit. Don’t forget the s’mores!
Yosemite National Park, California
How about taking a break from the hustle and bustle of life and enjoying a vacation in the wilderness with the family? Yosemite National Park is a great place to take in the beautiful sights that nature has to offer.
You’ll have the option to camp out or stay at a camp that offers concrete-walled tents so that you don’t have to worry about setting up a tent every night. Be sure to raft down the Merced River and enjoy a horseback ride to Mirror Lake for once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Chicago, while being beautiful and full of culture, is also very family-friend! Most museums in Chicago offer free admission for kids so that they can explore as they please.
At Navy Pier, kids can investigate the Children’s Museum and take a ride on the 150-foot high Ferris wheel. Get a family photo in front of the iconic sculpture, “The Bean” in Millennium Park.
Chicago is also home to one of the only remaining free zoos in the country at Lincoln Park which the kids will love. There will be no shortage of kid-friendly food, either. Chicago loves their deep-dish pizza, and your kids will too.
These family-friendly vacation spots will give everyone in your family something to enjoy and will be sure to bring the family closer together as you experience new adventures together!
