Are you planning your next big family vacation? An estimated 71% of Americans are planning to travel for fun in 2022, so why not join them?
Planning the right vacation takes time and money. Make sure that you’re already budgeting for your next trip, especially if you know that you’ll be stocking up on souvenirs.
We’re here to talk about a few family vacation locations that are sure to be a hit with everyone in your group. Read on to learn more.
1. Orlando, Florida
It’s no secret that Orlando, Florida is one of the top family vacation destinations in the United States. Not only is the weather sublime, but there’s so much to do that you’ll never have to be bored.
We recommend visiting during the “off-season.” While summer is a great time to go to the other locations on our list, Orlando can get too hot and humid for small children, especially if you plan on visiting the parks.
Every young child dreams of a Disney World vacation, and you can give them one in Orlando. There are even fun activities for adults (like drinking around the world in Epcot) so everyone can have a good time.
Talk to a Disney travel agent to help you out.
Bonus: if Disney isn’t your style, check out Universal Studios. They have rides and activities for older kids and adults alike.
2. Washington D.C.
Washington D.C. is one of the best city vacations for adults and children alike. You get to experience history.
D.C. is full of fantastic food and museums. You can see the White House and the capitol building, as well as plenty of interesting monuments.
When you want to spend time indoors, visit the Smithsonian museums. You can learn about art, science, and natural history. This is a great opportunity for small children.
What if your family prefers camping vacations? Yosemite might be just the right family vacation location for you. As far as outdoor vacations go, this is a great option for anyone who loves to “rough it” while also seeing fantastic flora and fauna.
You can go horseback riding, hiking, sightseeing, rafting, and so much more.
Again, it’s best to avoid Yosemite during the summer unless you’re able to plan a year in advance. It’s popular during the summer, so finding a space might be difficult.
4. Outer Banks
For beach lovers who aren’t into the idea of going to Florida, we recommend the Outer Banks in North Carolina. This coastal destination is perfect for relaxing on a budget.
There’s a great aquarium nearby on Roanoake island and there are miles of beaches for you to lay out and get some sun or get into the water. All east coasters know about this perfect beachy getaway.
