27 Unforgettable Family Vacation Ideas for After the Pandemic

Sometimes it takes a pandemic to make you realize which family vacation ideas are really at the top of your bucket list. Now that we can’t travel as freely as we used to because of COVID-19, you might be finding yourself daydreaming more than ever about where you want to take the kids when the world reopens. If so, you’re not alone. Surveys show that when travel resumes, people are more likely than ever to invest in all-inclusive family vacations in the U.S. and abroad along with other big-ticket vacation experiences.

Here are our faves!

 

Monhonk Mountain House

The only U.S. location for Club Med is far from alone when it comes to all-inclusive vacation options for families, though. In the northeast, the Mohonk Mountain House offers a stunning Hudson River Valley backdrop for classic family vacation activities like swimming, kayaking, row boating, picnicking, and hiking (not to mention family-friendly fare like glow-in-the-dark disc golf).

Four Seasons Resort Hualalai

Hawaii is always one of the best family vacation destinations in the world, but booking a stay at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is a next-level family vacation idea for kids and parents alike. Ringed by glorious white-sand beaches and a rocky black lava landscape on the Big Island, this family-friendly resort has seven swimming pools, an incredible kids’ club, and a teen-only lounge for when your surly teen has had enough of you (or vice versa). Throughout 2021 and all the way until February 28, 2022, you can save 20 percent off the regular room rate if you book a stay at least seven days in advance. 

Seven Mile Beach

Of course, Mexico and the Caribbean are great family vacation destinations for sand and sun, too. The island of Grand Cayman is home to the crescent-shaped Seven Mile Beach, world-renowned as one of the most beautiful beaches in the entire Caribbean. The seven miles of uninterrupted beach are lined with restaurants and the crystal clear water is perfect for snorkeling with kids. Family-friendly Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort boasts prime real estate on the beach to go with its beachfront pool and fabulous rooms.

Beaches Turks & Caicos

In the Turks and Caicos, Beaches Turks and Caicos has villas that can accommodate up to 14 people, making it a great all-inclusive option for larger families

Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya

In Mexico, Cancun’s Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya offers both a kid-friendly and an adults-only private beach vacation experience right in the heart of the Cancun Hotel Zone. Families love it for the 29,000-square-foot Woodward Riviera Maya action-sports facility (think trampolines, a skate park, and a ninja obstacle course), the kids club with daily activities, and the Rockaway Bay water park loaded with adrenaline-fueled slides for the older kids and gentler slides for the youngest families members.

These 25 Blogs Have Great Family Spring & Easter Vacation Ideas

spring break

Because it is that time of the year again to start figuring out what to do with the kids during Easter and Spring Break, we are sharing a old post featuring 25 blogs with ideas for what to do and were to go!
Enjoy!
Camping
Getting away for a while and hanging out in nature can be very

relaxing for kids and parents alike.  You don’t even have to go very far

from home to enjoy this experience.  Getting the kids outside to play,

get some exercise and spend time away from the television and other

electronics can be great for some family bonding.  Here are five blog

posts with family-friendly camping ideas.
Cruises
Cruise lines have opened up a world of opportunities for vacationing

with your kids.  What was once considered a more adult-only vacation has

branched off and now includes many kid-friendly activities, making it

the perfect family-friendly vacation. There are also some cruises, like

the Disney cruises, that are geared almost entirely at the kids in the

family.  Check out these five blog articles about cruising options for

the family.
Warm Destinations
If you are living in a region where there is a lot of snow and

temperatures fall below zero, you might be thinking that enjoying Spring

Break on the beach sounds pretty good.  Which beach do you choose?

Beaches and other warm destinations to enjoy during Spring Break are

included in these next five blog entries.
Cold Destinations
Spring Break is often the last chance to get some skiing in if you

want to head north or travel into the mountains. If you aren’t a skier,

there are plenty of cold destinations that offer fun activities for

families during Spring Break as well, such as taking in a play on

Broadway or checking out historic locations in New England.  These five

blog posts will point out some Spring Break destinations that will allow

you to take advantage of cooler temperatures before summer hits.
Kids with Working Parents
If you can’t take time off this year to go on a family trip and you

are looking for something interesting for the kids to do all week, here

are some ideas that might inspire your youngsters to have a blast on

their break at home. If you don’t live near any of these places, but

still want to take advantage of these ideas, keep in mind that your

child might be able to stay with family in another city and attend some

of the day camps.  Other ideas to keep kids from getting bored over

Spring Break are also noted.  For ideas check out these five blog

articles.
