Surviving holidays with children need not be too daunting. Children are mostly easy to please, but you need to also find a spot where you can also enjoy your holiday.
Planning for your holidays with children might not be easy and a number of factors come into play when deciding where you are taking your children for your vacation. You need to balance between a magnificent holiday spot, affordability, and an unforgettable family vacation that you can build memories on.
Surviving Holidays With Children
Where To Take Them
Here are some great ideas of places that children will love around the USA.
Choice Number 1: Disney World
Central Florida has been one of the best child-friendly vacations spots on earth for the longest time.
There is something for everyone from small children to grandparents, at Walt Disney World. You and your family are made to feel that they all are in another magical world if you board in Disney Resort. Your family can take breakfast with Mary Poppins or lunch with Cinderella and there are many theme parks to see (Magic Kingdom, Epcot Center, MGM Studios, and Animal Kingdom) and two water parks (Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon).
Choice Number 2: Atlantis Resort
Atlantis Resort is located on Paradise Island in the Bahamas and is best for a tropical family vacation. Every member of the family can have fun doing a variety of attractions offered by the resort.
There are eleven pools and a number of water slides and rides from kiddies pools to the Mayan Drop that plunges riders down a 6-story slide. Sailing excursions, snorkeling, golfing, and other outdoor activities are part of enjoyment with the tropical landscape offered by the resort.
The resort itself is rather expensive, but there are cheaper eating places within walking distance.
Choice Number 3: Snowbird Resort
Snowbird Resort in Snowbird, Utah is for those families that love the snow instead of sandy beaches. Snowshoeing, snowboarding, lugging, snow mobiling, ice-skating, and snow tubing are just some of the various activities that can be enjoyed by the family.
Choice Number 4: Treesort
Treesort in Oregon is the perfect vacation destination for adventure junkie families.
This is a real Swiss Family Robinson type of vacation, high above the ground in the trees. Your family can select from 18 different tree houses to stay in. Wooden swings, swinging bridges, platforms, and forts for climbing and fun all make up this unusual resort.
The treehouses have beds, bedding, electricity and some have bathrooms, all in a rustic location close to Cave Junction Oregon. This is the original Treehouse Treesort and has the world’s largest concentration of treehouses.
There’s also an abundance of adventures to be had nearby, such as the stunning Oregon Caves National Monument, the Redwoods National Forest, and great trails for hiking and biking. Rafting and fishing are also popular in the area.
Choice Number 5: Pocono Mountains
The Pocono Mountains provide four seasons of fun for the entire family, with a variety of great resorts and lodges everyone in your family will enjoy during your time in Pennsylvania.
Spend a lazy day on Lake Wallenpaupack, one of 150 lakes in the Poconos Region, or head to Bushkill Falls, considered by locals to be the “Niagara of Pennsylvania.”
When the snow begins to fall, visitors flock to the amazing ski resorts like Shawnee Mountain, Camelback Mountains Resort, and Blue Mountain Ski Area.
Whatever the season, you’ll enjoy touring the quaint and historical towns of Milford, Stroudsburg, Mt. Pocono, and Jim Thorpe, all of which make up this unique area.
Location – Half The Battle Won
Surviving holidays with children need not be a challenge. You just need to pick the right location.
If you have small children many resorts offer activities and clubs for the younger ones, so you can leave them there to be entertained and have some holiday rest yourself for a little while.
Older children will love activities like organized games, putt-putt, hiking, canoeing, and these types of things you can enjoy as a family together creating memories.
Booking at the right location, you will never hear the words ‘I am bored’ being uttered by your kids.
So it’s all about choosing the right location with plenty of family-friendly things to do.
