5 Family Friendly Vacation Spots You Have to Check Out
The family vacation can easily be the best of times… or the worst of times. To make sure that you’re firmly in the former category, you have to pick a spot that everyone can enjoy. Easier said than done, right? Well, we’ve already done the homework for you. Below, check out 5 of the coolest vacation spots your entire family will be raving about for years to come.
1. River Dance Lodge – Kooskia, Idaho
Nestled on the banks of the Clearwater River, you’ll stay in hand-crafted log cabins and take advantage of white-water rafting, hiking on more than a dozen trails, horseback riding, cooking classes, and so much more. Oh, and did we mention cell phones don’t work here? You’ll have plenty of peace and quiet time to spend with your loved ones.
2. Cedar Point – Sandusky, Ohio
Cedar Point is the kind of place that can grow with your family year after year. With 16 roller coasters, a water park, life-sized animatronic dinosaurs, kids rides, and one of the most gorgeous beaches in the country, there are more than enough activities for all ages… and then some.
3. Pardisus Playa del Carmen La Esmerelda, Mexico
This all-inclusive family-minded resort is the stuff dreams are made of. In fact, you might have trouble deciding how to spend each day. Do you go swimming in the crystal-clear waters? Go camping? Learn how to scuba dive? Take a trip to the Mayan ruins? Sigh. If only we had to make these tough decisions every day.
4. Nantucket, Massachusetts
Experience one of the most iconic New England spots this year by bringing your family to historic Nantucket. With plenty of family-friendly hotels in the area, you all can enjoy old-fashioned summer fairs, day camps, museums, boating, and gorgeous sunsets on the beach. Wearing Nantucket-red shorts and eating lobster rolls is optional of course, but highly recommended.
5. Timberline Lodge – Mt. Hood, Oregon
Covering over 3,690 vertical feet, Timberline Lodge is the only ski area in the country that operates all year long. Beyond the typical winter sports, you can hit up the snowshoe trail, cruise down the mountain biking trail, or even take the Magic Mile Sky Ride up to 7,000 feet for some truly memory-making views with your family.
