The beach is always a good choice and it can be very budget friendly as well. We recommend renting a condo on the beach for some fun family vacation time. You can plan ahead and cook your meals at home to save money. On days when you’re not enjoy the surf and sand try checking out some local museums.

 4. Family Friendly Cruise

A carribbean cruise is a family vacation that everyone is sure to enjoy. Adults can get plenty of rest and relaxation while the kids play in the arcade or swim.

5. Disney World

Travel to Disney World for a Family Vacation

Disney World is an obvious choice for a family vacation but it’s not for the feint of heart. A Summer vacation at Disney World means long lines and excruciating crowds in the Florida sun. If you’re brave enough, a Disney World vacation will create memories that will last with your family forever.

6. All Inclusive Cancun Mexico

Cancun is probably not the first destination that comes to mind when you think “family-friendly vacation” but it’s really come a long way. With so many all-inclusive resorts in Cancun and plenty of attractions to keep families busy, Cancun is quickly becoming a popular destination for families. You will find plenty of eco-friendly adventure and water parks near Cancun to occupy your time or just lounge around the resort near the pool.

7. Camping

We love camping and we enjoy doing it with family. Camping is one budget friendly vacation that really brings the family together. Making smores and laughing around the fire were some of my favorite childhood memories.

8. Hawaii

The Hawaiian islands are spectacular. If you and your family love the beach and outdoor activities this is the destination for you. A family vacation to Hawaii will have something for everyone. One day you can go for a jungle hike and end up at a waterfall. The next day, take a Sunset helicopter ride over the ocean. On the third day, take a trip to the beach and learn how to windsurf. There are so many options on the Hawaiian islands, this is a must-do family vacation.

9. Universal Studios Orlando

Universal Studios is a slightly more adult friendly theme park. If you and the kids enjoy thrill rides this is the park for you. Universal Studios Orlando is huge and has plenty of entertainment for both adults and kids. They’re opening up a new water park this year! The best tip we have for avoiding long lines is to stay in one of the property hotels. You will get a fast pass for all of the rides. Having a fast pass really cuts down on some of the wait times for rides.

10 . Road Trip

Family Summer Vacations and Road Trips

The most important part of any family vacation is spending time with each other. There is no better way to do that than with a road trip. Maybe you’ll visit the Colorado rockies or The Grand Canyon. The destination doesn’t really matter, this family vacation is all about the journey.

Where Will You Go?

This year we decided on a family cruise. We will be cruising to Mexico and Honduras. We usually do Summer family vacations for one week. It is the perfect amount of time for us and isn’t too expensive. Where will your next Summer family vacation be?
