D.C. with the family
As Washington, D.C., is a quintessential site to visit for families, it was not difficult to find activities that would appeal to them all.
If you are seeking family-friendly accommodations, consider the Potomac River Hotel; its rooms offer river views and spacious settings perfect for those who appreciate such comforts during their stay. Additionally, don’t forget about the National Harbor District; this area is ideal for any adventure-seeker! Families will surely enjoy making use of its myriad attractions as well as taking advantage of other offerings within its vicinity – from spa treatments to live music performances!
For an invigorating yet relaxing outing with your family, why not take in one of the many impressive national monuments located in proximity to D.C.? From the Lincoln Memorial to Mount Vernon and Arlington National Cemetery, these sites provide ample opportunities for exploration and reflection along with providing unparalleled scenery that can be appreciated by all!
3. Enjoy a long weekend in the Midwest
A response to our request for which states were worth the two-week drive, Illinois and Indiana put forth a staunch case. With their abundant nature, friendly inhabitants and bountiful state parks dotting its landscape within reach, ranging from beaches to lakeside retreats – there’s no shortage of outdoor activities!
With all of this opportunity laid at our fingertips as well as such convenient access to both Chicago and Indianapolis via train or plane, it was only natural we should add a long weekend in Chicago and Indianapolis to our itinerary.
4. Go over the rainbow in Ireland
During your excursion, take time to notice the striking array of hues around you. Even if it’s cloudy or rainy, don’t let that deter you; there are still plenty of places on earth where sunlight is abundant!
Ireland is renowned for its captivating landscapes and myriad shades of green; its hillsides are adorned with plumes of misty clouds at every turn!
After exploring this wondrous land, you need a break from sightseeing and treat yourself to some scrumptious cuisine. To create an authentic experience, we chose Haggis & neeps – a traditional Scottish dish featuring barley porridge served alongside black pudding and onion gravy!
5. Expand your horizons in Greece
If you are seeking a more spacious country-side setting, then consider Greece. The numerous islands of this Mediterranean nation offer travelers the chance to discover enchanting destinations like Rhodes and Corfu, whose coastal towns allow for ample opportunities for exploration and leisurely excursions alike – all at an affordable cost!
Although I’ve visited Greece twice before, during my most recent trip I was eager to explore beyond what was already known to me. In between traditional excursions such as Delphi and Olympia, our itinerary provided ample opportunity for diversions: from touring ancient ruins in Athens and delving into its rich history; to visiting island sanctuaries like Lindos and Rhodes that are renowned for their captivating beauty.
6. Escape to Las Vegas
Let’s be honest – visiting Las Vegas is a dreamy undertaking for most people. It has something for everyone, from thrilling attractions to leisurely activities; whether you are seeking just a bit of action or a laidback ambiance with no strings attached!
By spending time in Las Vegas, I experienced an array of interests and activities. From dining at one of the city’s premier restaurants such as Ferraro’s, playing slots during my stay at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino and sampling lavish cuisine at Nobu and Mandalay Bay- all within walking distance of each other!
I participated in many exciting excursions while staying in Las Vegas, notably the dusk departure tour (which took place early in the morning) and a whirlwind nighttime adventure through the Grand Canyon followed later on by an exhilarating drive into Death Valley National Park.
7. Cruise the Caribbean
Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life by embarking on a dreamy getaway: a Caribbean cruise! This exhilarating journey affords guests the opportunity to relax amidst azure waters, take in unforgettable sights alongside fellow travelers as well as savoring time spent away from their daily routines.
If you’re seeking a truly immersive experience in which you can revel in the natural splendor of magnificent seascapes without any cultural barriers, then consider taking on an excursion aboard ship. Some cruises even offer opportunities for exploring faraway destinations – such as providing shore excursions during one’s stay!
Cruise ships offer little-to-no control over the itinerary while they sail away from port, so it is up to you to select an excursion based on your preferences. Whether you wish to explore our magnificent land or delve into waters rich with marine life; there are sure to be plenty of choices available for exploration!
8. Road trip around America
After a cross-country road trip, we decided to take in some sights along the way; from our homestay in New Orleans’ French Quarter, to the Roman Catholic cathedrals of Old City and downtown.
The space was filled with color and intrigue, making for an unforgettable journey that spanned over 15 states. From towering monuments and ancient churches to captivating vistas and iconic restaurants – there was no shortage of noteworthy experiences during this epic excursion!
