You don't have to settle for the same boring trip every
year. Try some of these travel destinations for some
fun family vacation ideas.
The Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona is simply awe
inspiring and most definitely a fun place to visit.
Remember that this is quite a popular destination so make
your reservations in advance. Don't wait till the last
minute, especially if you want to do some of the really
interesting activities such as one of the mule trips.
Remember that the South Rim is open year round but the
North Rim is only open from around May to October. I've
been to the Grand Canyon once and I really think everyone
should experience this scenic wonder. Be aware though that
many areas do not have guard rails, so do not venture too
close to the edge. Several people fall to their deaths each
North Carolina's Outer Banks comprise a series of
barrier islands which are linked by bridges and ferries.
This area is popular for its magnificent beaches. Weather
on the Outer Banks is relatively mild year round, but
remember that August and September are peak months in the
hurricane season so plan accordingly. You may find some
off-season rates September to May, so take advantage and
enjoy this lovely area.
Miami, Florida, is most definitely a fun place to go on
vacation. With its great shopping, festivals, street fairs,
beaches, farmers markets, museums, attractions, parks,
concerts, and even a zoo, this is a city that requires some
time to explore. Not only will you find great places to
explore, but also many activities such as biking, boating
and sailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, golf,
tennis, and lots of walking! Many consider shopping an
activity as well, and you can do plenty of that. In fact,
there are a true bounty of choices as far as shopping in
this city, on par with those found in world-class cities
anywhere. Just about any taste can be catered to.
The Maine Coast. You'll find hard-packed white sand
beaches (with icy cold water!), beach cottages, hotels, and
oceanfront restaurants. Kennebunkport is a classic old New
England port town of stately white clapboard houses,
lusciously green lawns, and beautiful rambling Victorian
summer homes (or cottages as they are referred to). Then of
course there is the shopping Mecca of Freeport. July and
August are peak season, but the best time to go is after
Labor Day. Leaves begin turning in September, and what a
beautiful sight this is!
So don't forget to give these awesome
family vacation ideas a try!
