The kids are out of school and you have the whole summer to keep them entertained! Don’t panic! Now is the perfect time to plan a family vacation that everyone can enjoy. It is important to keep everyone in the family happy so pick a destination that has something for everyone. The options are endless at our parks, ranging from each beach getaways to parks near lakes, streams and mountains.
- Cruise on Down
This is an awesome option for your family because the adventure can begin on the boat, paddleboat or kayak. Many of our parks also have water features that both children and adults will love. Depending on what the family will like best, look for a park that features different activities, friendly entertainment, mini golf, and great activities to keep the kids entertained. You and your significant other can soak up the sun, relax, or enjoy the area attractions. It’s great to know that food, drinks, accommodations, and entertainment are all taken care of. Not to mention you get to visit multiple destinations and explore.
- Family Camping Trips
Surveys show that 13% of adult participants go camping because they wanted to spend more time with their families. It is definitely a chance to bond and do something truly unique with your loved ones. Camping vacations don’t have to elicit visions of roughing the wilderness with a flimsy tent. You can camp in style with your family. Think of it as a cruise ship on land! Look for a camp-resort that offers an array of accommodations; choose from a cabin, RV, tent, yurts, or even tiny homes! A resort like Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park™ Camp-Resorts has locations all over the U.S. and Canada. It’s a camping destination that offers character appearances for the kids, splash-grounds, water slides, lakes and rivers, themed camping weekends, entertainment and even birthday parties! The best kind of camping vacation is one that offers the best of both worlds with modern amenities in natural surroundings.
- The Beach Getaway
If you want something a little more relaxing, a beach getaway might be the best option. Sun, sand, water, and relaxation awaits. You and your family can rent a cabin at one of our Jellystone Parks near you. Your backyard can be the sand near one of our lakes, bays, or rivers. You don’t even have to worry about transportation, just step outside! There are plenty of kid-friendly beach activities at many of our parks such as: volleyball, swimming, fishing, and more! This is a vacation that puts a little more pressure on you to take care of food and entertainment but a tropical location has the potential to keep everyone happy on this family vacation.
