Trying to decide where you and your little ones should go on your next vacation? Here are five kid-friendly cities in the United States to give you a few ideas.
With Disneyworld, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, Legoland, Gatorland, and the Kennedy Space Center, there is no shortage of kid-catered theme parks in Orlando. Whether your children love movies, animals, Legos, or space, there will be something that they will enjoy in this unofficial theme park capital of the United States. Because of all of these theme parks, Orlando as a whole has developed to become very kid-friendly with most restaurants offering kids menus and many hotels boasting pools and kids’ clubs.
The sunny island paradise of Honolulu is not just perfect for couples looking for a romantic getaway. With fun beaches to splash in and easy hikes to learn about nature, Honolulu is the ideal city for a nature-oriented family vacation. Honolulu is quite a popular tourist destination. You will be able to have your pick of hotels, timeshares, Airbnb, bed & breakfasts, or whatever other accommodations you would like.
Want to give your kids a chance to experience the wonder of snow? Denver, Colorado is the place to go! From winter activities like sledding that are perfect for the littlest of children to skiing and snowboarding for older kids, there is a winter outdoor activity for kids of any age!
If your children are animal lovers, San Diego may be the perfect place for your next family getaway. Everyone knows about the animal-filled San Diego Zoo and Safari Park! Plus, your kids may be able to see some creatures in real life as well, including sea lions at La Jolla Cove and anemones and starfish in the tide pools at Moonlight Beach!
Portland may be a little bit of an unconventional choice for a kid-friendly trip, but it is a great choice nonetheless. Have your children stop and smell the roses at the Portland Rose Garden, buy a new book to read at Powell’s Books, or buy a half dozen pint-sized donuts at Pip’s Original Doughnuts & Chai.
As a bonus, Portland is straightforward to get around, whether it be by public transit, bike, or just on foot.
