If you thought that becoming a parent meant waving goodbye to fun-filled adventures and memorable excursions, think again! With so many brilliant holidays for kids available these days, you can take your entire brood on a trip of a lifetime. So, with this in mind, here are ten of the best locations in the USA to enjoy as a family.
1. Walt Disney World Resort Florida
What would a trip to the USA be without an action-packed adventure to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida? A mind-blowing entertainment complex complete with magic castles, exhilarating rides, mouth-watering eateries, fireworks, parades, character breakfasts and much, much more, this is the ideal place to make your dreams come true.
And while you’re in Florida, don’t miss a trip to Clearwater, a spectacularly beautiful coastal city nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. Blue seas and white sandy beaches come as standard here so if swimming, boat rides, dolphin watching and building sandcastles are on the agenda, head to one of America’s best beaches.
With little ones in tow, you might be slightly wary of travelling to Miami; after all it’s party, party, party, right? Well, that’s not actually the case. Sure, there are stretches of coast lined with pubs and bars but there are also nature reserves and long strips of sand that are ideal for idling the time away.
4. Washington D.C.
If you want to take the kids on a fun, yet educational trip they won’t forget, don’t miss Washington D.C. As well as the White House, Lincoln Memorial, National Zoological Park and the Washington Monument, this part of the USA is also packed with fascinating museums including the National Air and Space Museum home to huge planes, hands-on experiments, simulators and more.
Make your way to the Big Apple and you’ll find a wealth of activities for kids including some pretty epic playgrounds. The Alice in Wonderland sculpture in Central Park is also very cool as is the Children’s Museum of Manhattan.
6. Grand Canyon
Travel is a great form of education, so why not make crossing the pond worth it with a visit to the Grand Canyon? Named as an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, this natural phenomenon has become one of the biggest talking points in the US so don’t miss out.
7. San Diego
With so much to see and do in America, sometimes it’s nice to lie back on a San Diego beach and soak up the vibrant atmosphere – but if the waves start to bore little ones there’s always the San Diego Zoo or Sea Life centre to check out.
8. Yosemite National Park
Set within California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains, Yosemite National Park is a sight to behold and a great location for adventurous families who love hiking, cycling and camping.
Again, Honolulu is famed for its beaches with Waikiki being a child’s paradise thanks to its long stretches of beautiful coastlines. What’s more, check out the Hawaiian Adventures Water Park if you’re in the area and if you get the opportunity to swim with dolphins – seize it!
10. New Hampshire
Fancy escaping the hustle and bustle of life and complementing your American adventure with a lakeside stay? Head to Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. Only two hours from Boston it offers everything from sailing to wakeboarding and in winter the snow-covered mountains are one big adventure playground.
So there you have it: ten of the best locations in the USA that should top any travel list.
