Adult Children

Taking a vacation with young children can be a challenge, between travel expenses and finding family-friendly activities. However, there are trips perfect for the entire family that combine adventure and culture and provide an upgrade from the standard theme park fare.

 

Caribbean

The islands of the Caribbean are home to many resorts boasting kid-centric activities. Atlantis Paradise Island, Bahamas, Franklyn D. Resort in Jamaica and Beaches Resort, Turks and Caicos all offer a variety of specialized amenities for little ones.

 

Florida Keys

While Orlando might be considered the destination of choice for a family trip in Florida, consider instead going further south to the Florida Keys. Each island offers a different experience for every type of family. Islamorada, Key Largo and Key West are among the most popular islands.

 

Galápagos Islands

The diverse wildlife and ecological protection zones allow for an up-close-and-personal view of the unique wildlife for the nature-loving family. Take part in snorkeling, biking, kayaking and hiking.

 

Glacier National Park, Montana

Spend time exploring one of the United States’ majestic National Parks. Glacier National Park is situated in the Rocky Mountain range and offers plenty of wilderness activities including horseback riding, fishing and camping.

 

Ireland

The country combines cultural attractions, stunning natural landscapes and historic buildings, ideal for a trip with children of any age.

 

If you would prefer to let a professional do most of the work for you, consider looking into a tour operator. Check out the offerings from AffordableTours.com, Intrepid Travel, Thomson Family Adventures and REI Adventures.
