It’s summer, baby! Time to have some fun in the sun. Take some time off. Relax and enjoy yourself and your family. It’s also usually time for a family vacation!! If you have been racking your brain trying to come up with an idea of a fun place to take your family on vacation, you’re not alone. There’s a lot of options out there. Almost too many (a nice problem to have, I guess). The world is certainly filled with very memorable destinations that are wonderful for children and adults alike. The key is to select a place that both fits within your budget and provides you with activities that will adequately entertain you and your family for the duration of your trip. Here are just a few ideas for a nice family vacation.

1. Yellowstone National Park

Taking your family out into beautiful nature is always a great way to spend leisure time with them. There are few more beautiful and scenic places on this planet than Yellowstone National Park. Seeing the famous Old Faithful geyser erupt with your own eyes is truly something to behold. There are many things to see and do while you are at Yellowstone. However, you need to be in good shape because you will be doing a lot of walking. It is important to understand the dangers that are present in Yellowstone. You must always be aware of your surroundings and never allow your children to wander off by themselves.

2. The Grand Canyon

You have no doubt seen many photos of the Grand Canyon, not to mention seeing it on TV. However, this can’t compare with the wonder of taking in this breathtaking sight with your own eyes. It took millions of years to create this magical place, so you should definitely let your family have the experience of seeing it in person. You can also journey to the bottom of the canyon and do some white water rafting. The sheer beauty of the Grand Canyon will make this a family vacation they will remember for the rest of their lives.

3. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

While Myrtle Beach does not have as many activities for families as some of the other top destinations, it is still an excellent value when you consider the fact that it costs much less that many places. This is the perfect place to take your family if you want to enjoy some fun in the sun, but you are on a tight budget. There are plenty of reasonably priced accommodations in the area, so you can show your family a good time without going broke while you do it.

4. New York City

New York City has become a real tourist hot spot. It’s super safe and really cleaned up, it’s nothing like the bad ol’ days. There’s just so much to do and see, it’ll make your head spin. The buildings, the shopping, the museums, and Central Park. Go to the top of the new World Trade Center or take the free ferry to Staten Island and see the city from the water. The lights and crowds of Times Square always amaze. Go on the subway or hail and taxi…but my favorite is to just walk the streets. Always busy, alays something going on. SoHo, Greenwich Village, and the Lower East Side as all low-rise areas full of history. Check out Wall St. and Battery Park to see some amazing green space, the NY Stock Exchange, and so much more. Midtown has Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick’s Cathedral and leads right into the super chic Upper East Side with Madison Ave and Fifth Ave always impressing!

If you are contemplating a trip to New York City with your family, it would be a good idea to take a look at Hipmunk‘s travel guide for NYC before you go!!
