We bet that you still have some fond memories of a fun childhood family trip, filled with magic and excitement. That family camping trip or that fun stay at a national park, or even a trip to Disneyland. We all have our favourite places that we visited as children.
If you want to give your kids a U.S. vacation they will never forget, check out these locations. They will be talking about your trip for years to come – and so will the whole family!
Here are the U.S.’s best family trip destinations.
Niagara Falls, NY, U.S.A.
This timeless classic is an American landmark and is not to be missed. It boasts a seriously impressive view that you won’t get anywhere else. Make sure to bring your ponchos and take a ride on the Maid of the Mist boat for a fun family adventure. Go rainbow spotting by day and admire the beautifully lit Niagara Falls by night.
While you’re there, hop over to Canada via the Rainbow Bridge so that you can visit both sides of the waterfall.
Aspen Snowmass, CO, U.S.A.
Get your kids – or the kids in your family – skiing and snowboarding while they’re young! At Aspen Snowmass there are slopes for all levels so no one will feel left out. Go on a snow and fun filled adventure here and take some time to unwind with a hot chocolate or a good dinner at the local restaurants after.
Pacific Coast Highway, CA, U.S.A.
Feel like going on a road trip? Then go on the mother of all road trips!
Drive up California’s beautiful Pacific coast with your family and enjoy the breathtaking views. We won’t judge you if you pretend to be in a Full House intro montage.
Take as many stops as you can – sunbathe on the many beautiful beaches and visit all the local attractions on your way up. Don’t miss out on the wooden roller coaster in Santa Cruz, the Monterey Aquarium and the otters at Point Lobos.
Dinosaur Valley State Park, TX, U.S.A.
Got someone in your family who is obsessed with dinosaurs? Then a vacation at the Dinosaur Valley State Park is the way to go!
This state park has some of the best preserved dinosaur tracks in the world. Walk in the giant dinosaur footprints, hike or bike along the trails or go fishing. This is the perfect holiday destination for nature lovers.
Millennium Park, IL, U.S.A.
If you are visiting Chicago on a city break you have to visit Millennium Park. Take a group photo at the iconic Cloud Gate sculpture – aka. the Bean – and have some fun with the Crown Fountain.
There are plenty of fun family activities to do here such as family yoga and guided tours, so you will never run out of things to do!
Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, HI, U.S.A.
If you are travelling a little bit further out to Hawaii, we recommend visiting the Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park with your family. Its impressive craters and array of geological wonders make it the perfect spot to explore, learn and relax. Try the local fruit and immerse yourself and your family in the local culture.
