It can be hard work keeping children entertained over the summer vacation. Suddenly, all the free time you had while the kids were at school is lost for the time being. However, the summer vacation doesn’t have to be stressful or tiring. It can also be a way to recharge your batteries while creating lifelong memories for the family as a whole.
One of the best ways to spend time with the youngsters is to take a short holiday. If your children are young, you may wish to avoid long-haul flights and instead opt for small city or country breaks to another State. Before you book your flights though, you’ll want to ensure the whole family is satisfied. Find out the best hotels, the spectacular landmarks, and the activities to avoid disappointment. Here are the three best USA States for your next family holiday.
If your family enjoy sunshine and beaches, then flying to Florida could be the perfect destination. There are hundreds of beaches to choose from, so your children can keep entertained with the sea and the sand. If your kids also wish to participate in water sports, then the Florida Keys are a collection of islands best known for snorkeling. This can make for a perfect activity your children will be talking about for years to come.
Of course, your children will be begging to visit Walt Disney World, so ensure you book your tickets in advance. This famed theme park will seem like the most magical place on Earth to your kids, and they’ll love walking the theme park, bumping into their favorite Disney characters and riding the magnificent rides Walt Disney World has to offer. Other notable locations are Universal Orlando, Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Discovery Cove.
California is ideal for families who enjoy warm climates and exploring beaches and parks. Also, if you have children or even adult family members who enjoy water sports, all you have to do is search for ‘San Diego things to do’ for a wide selection of activities such as scuba diving and surf lessons. If you’re not a fan of the ocean, then you can also enjoy a game of softball, art lessons and roller blading.
Landmarks you and the family will want to check out while in California are the Golden Gate Bridge, Disneyland, Yosemite National Park and the famed Hollywood Sign. The State of California is so vast, you’ll find plenty to do. You could even hire out a car and drive the State’s entire coastline.
Arizona is best known for the Grand Canyon, a mile-deep chasm created by the Colorado River. It’s an immense sight to see, and worth the airfare. There are plenty of photo ops when visiting this wonder, and your friends and family back home will be jealous of your holiday. There are plenty of outdoor activities such as horseback riding in the Grand Canyon, as well as cycling and hiking. Families should also visit the Canyon Lake, Grand Canyon Village, Petrified Forest National Park and Monument Valley.
