Fun Family Vacation Places

Fun Family Vacation Places
When planning a family vacation, consider the ages of your children and your family's interests. Have they experienced the magic of Disney World yet, or would they rather visit historic Niagara Falls? Is your family adventurous enough to try something new, such as whitewater rafting?
 

Walt Disney World

Take your children to Disney World, where they can experience the magic of imagination. Buy a park-hopper pass so that your family can visit each theme park. Treat your family to breakfast with the Disney characters at Cinderella's castle, as well as riding family favorites like Peter Pan's Flight, Splash Mountain and Stitch's Great Escape in the Magic Kingdom. At Epcot, explore each country exhibit, watching young acrobats perform antics in China, or watching the belly dancers at the Morocco tent. Children will be amazed as they watch the Voyage of the Little Mermaid at Disney's Hollywood Studios, performed with live actors, film animation and puppets. At Disney's Animal Kingdom, families may ride the Wildlife Express Train to learn the workings of the Animal Kingdom and spot animals such as rhinos or elephants.

Whitewater Rafting

Experience an adventurous vacation that is safe and fun for the entire family by booking a family rafting trip in North Carolina. The staff at Blue Ridge Outing Company is well-trained, and a guide follows you in a separate raft. Your family will ride gentle rapids of the warm waters on Tuckaseigee River. Your family will experience rapids such as Papa Bear, Double Drop and Sharkstooth, as the raft turns and waves through them. Staff recommends that the inflatable rafts, otherwise known as duckys, often work best for these gentle rides, and allow teens to ride solo if they wish. Each tour lasts around 2 1/2 hours, with an hour-long instruction beforehand.
