Family Destinations

Theme park rides

More and more folks are doing Spring Break family trips. May we suggest Orlando and Los Angeles for those who love amusement parks? These cities feature several, including popular Disney and Universal parks. Do you prefer beautiful scenery? Wyoming’s Jackson Hole is gorgeous year-round, and nothing beats the Grand Canyon for stunning views (fly to Phoenix or Las Vegas). We also love Savannah, Georgia and New Orleans, Louisiana for their elegant beauty and excellent cuisine, and both offer fun and quirky excursions for aficionados of everything from stunning architecture to ghost tours. Tip: Check out visitor information sites for your destination; for example, New Orleans’ official tourism site lists of must-see attractions as well as free things to do.

And don’t forget about multiple destination cruises! Cruises are a great way to enjoy time with the family and we’ve got travel tips to help you get to the port, too.
