Travel destinations for relaxing with your kids, a complicated problem for families with kids. Let’s list some locations that are good for kids. Let’s face it, if you have a family travel bucket list, taking your kids to see the nation’s greatest natural wonder is definitely on it. So why is 2019 the year to visit? Because Grand Canyon National Park is celebrating its 100th birthday as a national park. The park is rolling out special events to celebrate, but even without them, you can still explore the stunning scenery of the mile-deep crevice by hiking a corridor trail, riding a mule down the Canyon or just enjoying the landscape from an overlook. Another family favorite here: A ride on the Grand Canyon Railway, which combines an unforgettable ride through spectacular surroundings with live music and stories that bring the Old West to life.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico -There’s so much to do in Cabo San Lucas in Mexico’s Baja California, especially for families. During the winter season, get up close and personal with whales migrating from the Arctic to the warm, calm waters surrounding the Baja Peninsula. You can go zip-lining, rock-climbing, swimming with dolphins and even camel riding in the dessert! We were thoroughly spoiled at the all-inclusive Grand Velas Los Cabos with its spa, pools, and attention to detail. A stay at Grand Solmar Land’s End Resort will also leave you sun-kissed, relaxed and well-fed.
Bophut, just 10 miles north of Koh Samui’s main town Chaweng, is perfect for families. The water is calm and shallow. The sand is beautiful with a touch of coarseness that makes cleaning-off super easy. Nearby Fisherman’s Village is filled with restaurants and small shops. Koh Samui has so many beautiful beaches it’s hard to pick the best and some will say that Choeng Mon or Chaweng are just as good for families – both are a short taxi ride away.
South Beach may be a playground for adults, but a few miles north lies paradise for the pint-sized. Acqualina is a sparkling, seaside beacon for families who want a low-key beach holiday with thoughtful programming for kids. Already known for its educational, marine biology-themed camp, the property is stepping up its aquatic offerings with a new activity (in partnership with EcoAdventures, a division of Miami Dade Parks) that explores sea turtles during the summer hatching season. Using sea turtle artifacts, shells, and a nest search along the shore, a naturalist expert will guide families through the life cycle to learn why the animals come to shore, what they eat, and how they spend their days. From $450 a night.
