Natick, MA (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
With the start of spring, families everywhere are beginning to plan their summer family vacations. With so many wonderful summer vacation destinations to choose from, it can be challenging to find just the right place. Family travel expert, Jodi Grundig, Editor of Family Travel Magazine is here to help with their top seven destinations for summer family vacations.
Smuggler's Notch/Stowe, Vermont
Canoeing, kayaking, swimming, arts and crafts, alpine slides, and kids' camps are just a few of the activities that families can enjoy in Vermont in the summer. Specific recommendations in Vermont include Smugglers' Notch, Stoweflake, and Stowe Mountain Lodge.
Quebec City, Quebec
U.S. families can expose their children to European culture without leaving the continent. Quebec City is a great place to visit in the summer, with fun sidewalk cafes, great hotels, outstanding culture, and beautiful sights. Fly into the convenient airport (stay in the Old City, and walk everywhere), or drive the short distance over the border.
San Diego has the same beautiful weather year round, so summer is as good a time as any to visit. Attractions like Legoland, SeaWorld, and the San Diego Zoo are perfect for families with younger children.
While Seattle is known for their rainy, damp winters, the summer is usually beautiful. If you are vacationing there for a week or more, consider a trip up north to Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia.
Virginia Beach, Virginia
Not only is Virginia Beach a beach, it's also home to one of the best aquariums in America. Spend a day out on the Eastern Shore, and then drive out to Williamsburg for Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens.
Dude Ranches (Various locations)
Dude ranches are a fun and unique vacation option which offer loads of activities for families, including horseback riding, fishing, whitewater rafting, and more, and many offer meals as part of a lodging package.
With beautiful summer weather and many popular historical attractions, Boston, MA is a fabulous summer vacation option.
