We all are patiently waiting for the day the virus is under control, and we can travel. Thankfully, experts think it should be safe to travel soon as long as precautions are taken. After being at home for so long, it will be a great time to think about planning for a family vacation when it’s safe! When these destinations do open to visitors, they’ll be waiting for you to discover them!
I’m often asked, ‘where are your favorite family-friendly vacation destinations?’ While really any destination is great for traveling with kids, here are a few incredible family-friendly destinations:
Italy has history, rich culture, incredible landscapes, delicious food, friendly locals, and beloved sites that people come from all around the world to see. It is a destination that everyone will be happy to visit, and you can take your pick from visiting mountains, the seaside, the countryside, big cities, small villages, and more.
Plus, with Italian food being so incredible, even the pickiest of eaters will be happy here—that definitely makes it an even more desirable destination for family vacations!
The UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
The United Arab Emirates is becoming a more and more popular destination for family travel. Dubai specifically is a city of luxury, sea, sand, and fun. The rotating tower in Dubai is a must-see upon completion, as well as other cool buildings you can visit as a family, and the kids will be interested in. A must-do family activity in the United Arab Emirates is to go for a desert tour, especially if you live in a place that has many different landscapes. On a desert tour, you can go dune bashing, sandboarding, quad biking, enjoy a sunset, and so much more.
Thailand offers experiences rich in history and culture. The streets are bustling in the main cities, the countryside leads you out to peace and quiet, and the beaches go from deserted to packed. It is a must to visit the ornate temples and ancient ruins.
Canada is well known for its natural landscapes and friendly locals. A couple of fun activities are to check out Niagara Falls, visit Banff National Park, or visit one of the many ski resorts during the winter season if your family loves winter sports.
Norway is a beautiful destination for a family vacation full of adventure. It recently started getting more tourists and specifically family travel due to the Disney movie Frozen having its fictitious country being based here. Explore the fjords, spend time in the mountains, and enjoy the rugged beauty of Norway.
Norway is also listed as one of the happiest countries on earth!
There is so much to see and do in Australia, and if your family loves to be outdoors and to go on adventures, it makes for a great vacation destination. Visit the Great Barrier Reef, check out the Sydney Opera House, spend some time at Bondi Beach, etc. An activity that the whole family will enjoy is a visit to the Outback, located in the Northern Territory. You can explore the desert, go on hikes, and see animals such as kangaroos.
All of these destinations can be amazing places to experience later this year and check off your bucket list. Plus, it’s good to get your kids traveling young, so they can experience new cultures.
