Family vacations are a great way to bond together, learn together, and see the world together. As the kids have strict school years, you also have plenty of time to plan in advance, too, so your next family trip away can be a great one. If your budget is limited, of course, skip the trip abroad! There are so many incredible things to see and do right here in the United States, meaning that your next family destination could just be a road trip away.
San Francisco, California
If you need one destination, go for San Francisco. It is a family-friendly area that is safe, beautiful, and has plenty to see and do. You can go for a beach trip along the coast, or go and see the massive Redwoods that honestly do have to be seen up close to be believed. If you are up for a road trip, visit the whole area. Spend a day or two in Hollywood. Go to the national parks. Explore one of the greatest states in the USA.
The Grand Canyon, Arizona
One of the most infamous landmarks in the world, the Grand Canyon is a masterpiece of nature. The park itself is full of adventures as well. You can hike, go on tours, or camp out and enjoy the rocky terrain and vivid set of colors. It is a great way to spend time together as a family, and if you haven’t been, it’s time to go now.
New York City, New York
New York City has quite a few strict laws when it comes to short-term accommodation. This, combined with the huge price of property can make hotels in the area very expensive. Rather than try to fight for a good deal, try looking for vacation rentals in New Jersey. There are plenty of transportation options from NJ to NYC that you won’t struggle to get into the world’s greatest city, meaning you and your family can have the best of both worlds. If you need some more tips on what to do in this great city, then look no further than the rental site, VacationRenter.com. You can plan out a great trip, just remember to make it your trip and do the things you and your family want to do.

This fascinating resort is a real treat for anyone who loves nature and wants to tap into their inner child.

Washington is full of amazing stuff to do and see. Whether you want to take a tour of the White House, or enjoy any of its amazing (and free!) museums, your vacation is sure to be jam-packed and highly educational. Don’t forget to visit Alexandria’s Old Town. Situated just south of Washington, it is a great way to round out your trip and enjoy your family time that much more.
Traveling with your family is so important, because it allows you do bond, learn, and grow together. Of course, the older your kids are, the more they will get out of it, so remember to save the big budget trips for later.
