Best Spots for Family Summer Vacation

 

 

Parents, kids, and teachers throughout the country are all eagerly counting down the days…nay, minutes…until summer vacation! Whether it’s a welcomed break from the rigors of the classroom, or just an opportunity to explore new adventures at home or on a proper vacation, summer offers endless opportunities for rest and relaxation. If you’re looking for the best spots for your family summer vacation, check out this post from National Geographic on the best places to take your family on vacation this summer.

The short list came from a variety of parent bloggers and attendees of last year’s Mom 2.0 Summit and include hot spots from coast to coast, as far west as California’s sunny San Diego to as far east as Cape Code, Massachusetts. The list features locations that allow families to get outside and enjoy the elements – from beaches to cave exploration and everything in between!

If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous (and maybe a tinge of wanderlust), check out the Top 10 Summer Destinations from The Travel Channel too. From far away destinations like Dubai, Amsterdam, and Bora Bora to more accessible US-based locales like Virginia Beach, Catalina Island, and Miami, this list has options for every family member.

Wherever you’re headed this summer, be sure to pack the sunscreen and a good pair of walking shoes!
