Family Friendly Vacation Spots

Going on vacation is the most wonderful thing for a child. It’s fun, exciting, and it can be an adventure. To a young child, it doesn’t matter where you go as long as they get to go somewhere away from home, they’re happy.

Planning a vacation when a child is involved is a completely different experience and can be difficult if you don’t know where to look or how to go about finding information. The best thing to do is go online and search for family friendly vacation spots. This search will produce a large list of sites that have information regarding vacation spots that are perfect for families.

Once you have picked out a few places, if you have time, it’s a good idea to request information about the area if you’ve never been there before. You can do this through the chamber of commerce. Most times this information can be requested online, but a few require a phone call.

If you don’t have the time to wait for the brochures, here are a few places we’ve visited that are family friendly.

1. Mt Rushmore is a wonderful place to take the family. There is so much to do and see that it would take a week or two for you to do it all. There’s Mt Rushmore itself, Crazy Horse, numerous underground caves, trails, Harney Peak, the 1880 train, and much more. Not only will your family have a great time visiting this wonderful part of South Dakota, but they’ll also learn a lot in the process.

2. Salt Lake City Utah is another place that’s perfect for the family. This is the general area where the 2002 Winter Olympics were held and that area is fantastic. You’ll be able to see the Great Salt Lake, the area where they held the skiing, snowboarding, bobsledding, and other outside events, and you’ll also be able to see the building where they did the skating events. Salt Lake City is full of interesting things to do and see and once again you’ll learn a lot along the way.

3. Yellowstone National Park is a great place to take your children. You’ll be able to camp, have camp fires, fish, look for wildlife, see Old Faithful, and view a wonderful place. Yellowstone National Park was the first national park and it’s full of history and great things to learn and see.

These are three of the thousands of places you can take your children on vacation. Each of these locations is fun and educational at the same time. They put your family in a different culture than they may have experienced before, but you won’t regret the decision.
