Family Vacation Critic, the resource for family travel from TripAdvisor, recently named the best beaches for families.

 

“Choosing an ideal beach for families can be quite difficult. Families are looking for beaches that are not only safe and clean, but also those that offer a level of convenience that meet the needs of those traveling with various age groups. Nearby accommodations, restaurants and attractions — as well as cost — all add to a beach’s appeal for families. This list of winners was hand-picked by our team of editors to highlight not only large, well-known beaches, but also some of the smaller hidden gems worth a visit,” said LissaPoirot, editor in chief, Family Vacation Critic.

 

The winning beaches include Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Outer Banks, N.C.; Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore, Empire, Mich.; South Padre Island, South Padre, Texas; The Wildwoods, Wildwood, New Jersey; Captiva Beach, Captiva Island, Florida; La Jolla Cove, San Diego, California; Misquamicut State Beach, Westerly, Rhode Island.; Million Dollar Beach, Lake George, New York; Clinch Beach, Traverse City, Michigan.; and Golden Gardens Park, Seattle, Washington.

Take a Ski Getaway to British Columbia

The western Canadian province of British Columbia is known for its skiing and winter sports, with Whistler Blackcomb often named one of North America’s top ski destinations. But British Columbia has more places to ski and play in the snow, family-friendly resorts with budget-friendly prices, and up to 400 inches of powder snow. An exchange rate of 75 cents to the dollar is an added incentive for American family travelers to travel north for a vacation.
