Summer family vacations can be a blast, but picking the right get-away spot can make the difference between a vacation to remember and a vacation you wish you could forget. The following five vacation spots should help you lay the groundwork for summer fun and relaxation.
Walt Disney World (Orlando, Florida)
You can’t go wrong with the happiest place on earth! Your kids will meet their favorite Disney characters, ride classic roller coasters like Space Mountain, see live performances, and more. DisneyWorld is spread out over 30,000 acres and features multiple theme parks, water parks, and golf courses. That’s more fun than you’ll know what to do with.
If your family is willing to brave a long airplane ride, Hawaii should be at the top of your list. There are a host of child-friendly beaches, not to mention a wide range of activities such as snorkeling, whale watching, swimming with dolphins, and the Hawaiian Adventures Water Park. Aloha ʻOe!
The Grand Canyon (Arizona)
The Grand Canyon ranks with DisneyWorld as one of the most popular vacation destinations. 277 miles long and 18 miles deep, this natural wonder is a must-see for the whole family, especially if you’ve never been. When you’ve gotten your fill of this titanic chasm, you can also go hiking, kayaking, rafting, and ride the Grand Canyon Railway.
Circus Circus (Las Vegas, Nevada)
Despite its reputation, Sin City can be a great place to take the family, especially if you stay at Circus Circus. It’s Vegas’s fifth largest casino, and offers a variety of entertainment such as acrobatic shows, arcades, and carnival games. Last but not least, Circus Circus is home to Adventuredome, an indoor theme park with over 20 rides.
Atlantis Resort and Casino (Paradise Island, Bahamas)
Who can say “no” to the Bahamas, especially if you’re combining the Bahamas with a fantasy-adventure experience? This $850 million resort is a recreation of the mysterious lost continent of Atlantis. You’ll have access to beaches, pools, water slides, and exhibit lagoons. You’ll also come across over 50,000 different types of animals, including sharks and stingrays
