When you are trying to plan a holiday for the whole family, it can be overwhelming trying to find something that keeps everyone satisfied and safe. The biggest stress of all is finding the perfect location for your big adventure. Most parents hope to strike a balance between doing something that is fun and where you can relax, but has some educational value and activities that interest everyone from the very smallest to the very biggest. It sounds almost impossible to tick all of those boxes, but actually, there are plenty of destinations that you could visit if you want to make the most of your time together. Here is our pick of the best places:
Year-round sunshine and oodles of activities to do, Florida is the perfect place for a vacation for anyone, but especially if you have children. Of course, one of the biggest draws to the state is the uber-famous Disney World. While this is often a once in a lifetime trip because it can be expensive, there are tips and tricks you can do to bring the cost down, such as carefully planning your dining. There are other things to see and do in Florida – Gatorland and the Kennedy Space Center are well worth a visit.
If you want to something a little bit out of the ordinary when it comes to your next trip, Brazil is well worth a look. The cities might be best avoided if you have young children as they can be very busy, but the beautiful beaches dotted around the coastline are perfect for fun and relaxing. You could even go on a light hike through the rainforests, where the whole family will be impressed by the incredible animals that emerge from the trees.
There is usually one thing that families look for when they are on holiday: the sun. As a country which has some of the best winter sun in Europe, it should come as no surprise that Spain is the most popular holiday destination for families. Both the Canary Islands and The Balearics are ideal for when you want to have an action-packed trip combined with days lazing on the beach. To avoid the seasonal crowds, you should consider going in the winter months or staying at a resort that is a short while away from the main attractions.
More and more families are hoping to go on adventure holidays with their children. When people think of mountain hikes and impressive views, their minds automatically drift to Canada. Here, you can participate in whale watching off the coast of Vancouver or see the crashing Horseshoe Falls, which looks out over the American border. When you are here, it’s best to come in summer, so that you have the option to go camping in the mountains without attracting a chill.
Sometimes, when it comes to planning a holiday, you need to think a little bit out of the box to find something that will suit everyone, but we hope that this has given you some ideas.
