In a city as over the top as Dubai, the nightlife tends to follow suit. Check out some of the top bars, clubs and incredible lounges on your next family trip. Celebrating graduation, Father’s Day or any other life achievement is easily done on this epic trip. Plan for long sunny days and even longer nights with a lineup of unique bars and lounges filling Dubai’s already eclectic hotel scene.

Book a table at Cirque Le Soir and be transported to a circus-themed club pumping with sword swallowers, circus acts and wandering performers making their way through the club. Located in the Fairmount hotel, guests should come prepared and check the dress code in advance. Book a stay for the whole family and take advantage of the 5-star services, rooftop bar and incredible accommodations.

Kick it old school at the Stereo Arcade, located in the DoubleTree by Hilton, complete with video arcade games, pop art and a throwback vibe. Play games and relax with a drink in this pixelated haven. The accommodations at the DoubleTree are no-fuss, down to business. Hit the beach, hotel bar and enjoy a casual atmosphere amid an anything but destination.

For swanky cocktails, club vibes and epic events, Sensation Club in the Crowne Plaza Hotel is one fun party. Check out the event calendar and choose a theme night to check it out. Your accommodations in the Crowne Plaza Hotel are shockingly affordable and in a great location, close to the beach, shopping and nightlife — what more do you need?

Club Boudoir at the Dubai Marine Beach Resort & Spa is another must-visit nightclub for partygoers. With a Baroque style and burlesque scene, you can dance until closing at 3 a.m. The hotel’s 5-star rooms, service and unbeatable location — right on Jumeirah Beach Road — is at the epicenter of luxury fun and entertainment in Dubai. Take up water sports and enjoy the natural beauty surrounding this incredible hotel and resort.

Under an event tent alongside the Habtoor Grand Hotel, XL Dubai is an interchangeable atmosphere constantly rotating themes and décor for various nights and events. One night a FIFA party, the next a fashion show. Head over for a drink or two and enjoy the vibrant ambiance.

Traveling to Dubai with the family is an opulent and exciting vacation at any age, but the memory of the luxury accommodations, services and exciting nightlife is one for the ages — older ages, that is.

Fall Wellness Getaways

There is an ever-growing number of options for wellness breaks — but it’s up to you to choose wisely in order to get the most from your experience. First, decide what kind of setting is best for facilitating an environment you find personally soothing or rejuvenating: city, forest, historic, mountain, ocean or lake? Do you want access to a yoga instructor, dance classes, hiking, cooking classes or another specific activity? Are you a solo wellness warrior, or do you prefer to travel with a partner or friends?

Lancaster, Pennsylvania, for Families

While many know Lancaster, Pennsylvania, as simply Amish country, the city just a short drive from Philadelphia offers so much more than farmland and Amish markets (though those are both worth checking out).
