Hershey Park: How can you go wrong with a chocolate wonderland
for a family vacation? This is sure to be one of the more "sweet" trips
that you and the little ones will enjoy together. But Hershey Park is
more than just peanut butter cups and chocolate bars. This amusement
park offers guests everything from kiddie rides to roller coasters. Be
sure to snap a pic with the giant Hershey Kiss!
San Diego, California: Warm up to a beach vacation at one of
America's best cities to visit year-round. This southern California
city receives very little rain, which means you will spend more time on
the sand. Families should flock to Mission Beach, which is a kid
friendly beach, and check out local attractions like the San Diego Zoo,
Sea World and LEGOLand.
Cape Cod: Head to one of New England's most lovely cities for amazing marine life and true American history. Cape Cod is still the quintessential family destination in the Northeast. Quiet beaches with gentle waves and lifeguards on duty will ensure a fun yet safe time with the kids. When evening comes, check out one of Cape Cod's delicious seafood restaurants, which offer up the typical fare like New England clam chowder, shrimp and lobster.
The Grand Canyon: Adventurous families that enjoy the outdoors will love their time at one of the most popular tourist attractions in the United States. Rough it under the stars at one of the canyon's various campgrounds. But if you prefer a cozy hotel and a warm shower after a long day of hiking, there are plenty of options nearby. The Grand Canyon even has a hotel right on the edge of one of the rims with absolutely amazing views.
: Still the king of family tourism, Orlando is always a sure bet for a memorable experience with the kids. Popular attractions like Disney World and Universal Studios will leave everyone wanting to come back for more at this Florida hot spot.
