Planning The Ultimate Family Vacation

Planning The Ultimate Family Vacation

So you have a young child (or two or three) and summer is coming up! You'd like to take the family on a vacation that is fun for the kids but also relaxing for you and your partner. Need some ideas? Here are our top picks for kid-friendly destinations that offer something awesome for everyone.

Relax on the Beach

Your kids will love building sand castles and watching the waves. You'll love eating fresh seafood, taking walks, and lounging in the sun. Some of the best kid-friendly beaches include Siesta Key, Florida or Paradise Island, Bahamas.

Head to the Farm

Give your little ones a chance to feed baby animals while you escape the fast-paced city life. We recommend Hull-O Farms in New York where you can enjoy campfires, hayrides, and more.

Take a Cruise

Cruises are a great option for families because there are so many activities available to you including nightly shows, spa treatments, water slides, beach days, and more. Our favorite kid friendly cruises are Carnival Cruise Line and Disney Cruise Line.

Enjoy a Theme Park

For a young child, few things are more exciting than heading to a theme park for rides, games, and maybe even some cotton candy. Take the family to Disney Land, Disney World, or The Wizarding World Harry Potter world for a truly unforgettable vacation.

Cool off at a Water Park

Looking for something extra special? Take the kids to Key Lime Cove in Chicago, an indoor waterpark resort which includes play ponds and a variety of kids entertainment and activities.

Visit an All Inclusive Resort

Many of these resorts offer great kids activities and special services. Our favorite is Beaches Resorts, which offers Vacation nannies, Sesame Street kids programs, train rides, art camps, and more.
