If you are in need of a reset, a break, or just some quality family time, a family vacation may be in store. Family vacations are great bonding experiences. With thousands of different spots you could visit across the country, there is surely somewhere that your family will enjoy.
Travel to a National Park
America is home to hundreds of national parks with diverse landscapes ranging from sulfurous geysers to volcanoes. Since there are so many national parks to choose from, traveling to one with your family is a great vacation because you have the option of traveling very little or far. When choosing which park to attend, make sure to check beforehand which parks are good for children. Parks with more variety, low-risk activities, and paved trails are often better for family vacations.
Hawaii is a beautiful place with a unique history of a once sovereign people. There are many things to enjoy in Hawaii from its rich culture to its lush landscapes. In order to preserve the beauty of the islands and local way of life, guests must be respectful of the land, natural resources, and residents of Hawaii. Follow all posted guidelines and pick up after yourself on all hikes and at all beaches. Kauai’s Kalapaki Beach is perfect for kids because of its calm waters.

Be especially aware of monk seals and honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles), two of the many endangered species in Hawaii. Enjoy your stay in the islands while always remembering that you are a visitor.
Explore Your Hometown
Not every vacation has to be an extravagant destination getaway to be enjoyable.
