Proper planning and keeping the kids entertained is the key to a successful family vacation. Choose one of the options below for a fun packed holiday that is sure to be a hit with the kids.
Of course, number one on the list has got to be Disney. Meet your favorite characters, see the parade and ride the roller coasters. Disney is set up for children of all ages.
Disney is a great US based holiday, and you can either stay in one of the park hotels or get a villa near to the park. If you go for a villa, make sure to rent one with a pool so you can cool off in the hot weather. If you decide to go for one of the fabulous themed Disney hotels, take a peek at the free dining packages as they can save you a packet.
If you are looking for a more international adventure, try the Paris or Shanghai locations. If you choose the Paris park, rent a car and make sure you take in the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, and the love. Kids will get a kick out of seeing the mummies in the Egypt exhibit.
If you go for the Shanghai location, make time to absorb some Chinese culture. Popular activities include a Huangpu-river-cruise at night, a food led city tour or check out an acrobatic show.
Brilliant for kids and adults alike, there are now Disney themed cruised available. The grown-ups can relax while the little ones are entertained by their favorite Disney characters. So it’s definitely a win-win situation.
A good old American road trip is something the kids can get into. Get them involved with planning the journey and picking out the locations that they would like to visit. Take the well-traveled Route 66 or go for a more usual option like a tour of America’s weirdest museums.
If you are consider buying your own RV for the trip, there are plenty of local dealerships with a wide range of motorhomes for sale. Remember to pick one that has enough space for the whole family as you will spend the majority of the day in there together. Motor homes make an especially good option for families with food allergies or special diets. You can use the kitchens to cook your own food and ensure exactly what goes into it.
The 277 mile long and 4000ft deep Grand Canyon, is a brilliant location for a family friendly vacation. Its spectacular beauty is great inspiration for artists, so why not get the kids sketching or taking photos for their journal? A helicopter ride, down into the canyon will up the excitement level, and if you want to go all out, why not horseback ride through the canyon itself? Of course, you don’t want to miss the sky walk either! As the Grand Canyon is set in its own national park, there are plenty of other activities to do. Think river rafting and trekking. The kids can even become a junior ranger!
