Vacations are times for the whole family to enjoy, but these days so many hotels and resorts focus on the adults and romance. While many travelers plan to relax while on vacation, families need activities to help create bonds and life-lasting memories. The best family resorts will help amplify these experiences while also making sure not to fall short on their expected services and amenities.
U.S. families can travel domestically and still experience exotic-like destinations. Hawaii and all of its beautiful islands are a perfect example, offering countless family resorts and activities that everyone will enjoy. Want to make use of your passport?
The Caribbean islands have a plethora of enticing resorts that will intrigue both well-traveled parents and curious kids. Or consider a cross-world trip to Fiji, its 300 islands and all their natural wonders.
For those who don’t live on one of the Hawaiian islands, one of the words that comes to mind when mentioning the 50th state is “vacation.” Luxury resorts, pristine beaches and a community bustling with culture and energy highlight one of the most beautiful, eye-catching places in the world. These are all features the whole family can and will enjoy.
But, apart from a trans-Pacific adventure, the U.S. has more to offer across its multicultural, diverse states. Florida, aptly named the Sunshine State, is a hotspot for tourists and families but for great reasons: theme parks and attractions the whole family can enjoy and warm weather. What about idyllic California, its beaches and the vacation-like culture that seems to permeate throughout the state? No matter where you look in the U.S., there’s a family vacation waiting.
Ah, the Caribbean islands. With places like the Bahamas, Jamaica or one of the U.S. or British Virgin Islands, this pocket of the world seems like vacation central. And fret not, vacationers and world-travelers with kids in tow: These islands and their amazingly talented and attentive staffs know how to take care of the whole family.
So, instead of taking the family to Disney (no offense, Mickey) this year, consider a trip to exotic St. Lucia; or perhaps the Dominican Republic; or maybe Grenada. Wherever you choose, it’s sure to be a memorable adventure for everyone involved.
