America by Train

Sit back and enjoy the ride aboard a train that takes you across the country. Whether it’s a coast-to-coast trip you’re seeking or a visual paradise through the fall foliage of New England, train vacations can delight your family. Some railroads offer all-inclusive amenities such as onboard lodging and dining. You’ll stop at popular destinations along your train route. Places like Chicago may be one of your destination points where you can enjoy a day with family while touring museums or other attractions. Remember the train depots of times past?

RV and Camping

Depending on the size of your family, an RV trip can be one of the best family vacations you’ll ever experience. You’ve got everything you’ll need under one roof, and it’s on wheels! You’ll love the flexibility and freedom that an RV vacation gives you. And there are thousands of campsites across America, allowing you to customize your route to your heart’s content. This family vacation will require careful planning for optimal fun, but there are numerous ways to map out a path that will lead you to fun-filled destinations. Consider driving during fall across Southeast USA. You’ll feast your eyes on gorgeous mountain foliage in Tennessee as you reach the Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg, one of America’s most visited national parks.

Family Ski Trip

Ski trips can be a snow-covered mountain of fun for your family! If you are a beginner, make sure to book family-friendly ski resorts that offer bundled packages with lodging and dining options. Consider planning this trip in the off-season to maximize your savings. Also, book ahead and take advantage of early-bird deals. 

You’ll find many reasons to love a ski trip. It’s a great opportunity to get some exercise and a few laughs if you’re a beginner. Your family will enjoy this group activity especially if you finish the day with an evening dinner at one of the mountainside restaurants. Think you’ll be too clumsy to enjoy the snow on skis? There’s no need to miss the fun. How about booking a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the countryside? Take your sweetheart with you for a romantic and scenic ride!

Booking a family-oriented vacation won’t be a hassle if you consider one of these options. Try something different and let your sense of adventure be your guide. Whether you’re cruising the Alaskan seas or skiing down the slopes of Colorado, you and your family are certain to make memories worth sharing for years to come.
