What’s summer break without a vacation? Whether you’re heading out with the entire family or looking for some grown-up fun, we’ve got you covered with destinations that are sure to take you to new heights, literally!

Five Kid-FRIENDLY Vacation Destinations

  1. The Grand Canyon

The-Grand-Canyon-VacationMy family drove cross country the summer before I started fifth grade. I’ll never forget our stop by the Grand Canyon. I was so mad when I found out that’s where we were heading! ‘We’re going to see a hole in the ground? Are you kidding me? What a joke!’ I grumbled on and on the entire drive, until I peeked out the window and caught a glimpse of that hole. To this day, I hold that experience in my heart as the first time I knew what true beauty was. It was utterly magnificent. The sheer vastness of it is enough to make even the most cynical teenager stop and admire the world around them. I was so impressed, I ran to the car and grabbed my most prized possession (a brown and white Pound Puppy named Martin, who I still have to this day) so he could see how awesome it was. You will note a picture of this event to the left. You’ll also need to ignore my hair. [continue reading…]
