Go wild camping at Yellowstone National Park

If your kids love the great outdoors, why not plan a wild camping experience for them? The US has lots of natural areas that are perfect for wilderness trips, but the biggest and best has to be Yellowstone. If you’re an active family that loves nature, enjoys hiking, and is always looking for an adventure, this could be the ideal trip for you. You’ll need a tent, a BBQ, and a range of other camping equipment, but that’s all. You can cycle, hike, fish, swim, or kayak here, as well exploring the area of the park that you’re camping in.

Plan a road trip to the coast

Are you a family that loves sun, sand and sea? Then a road trip to the coast could be the perfect vacation for you. The US has so many beautiful beaches, from Miami Beach to Malibu, there are lots of places to visit and explore. Road trip to the coast in a motorhome or RV, and spend some time sunbathing while the kids build sandcastles and splash about in the sea.

Explore the Grand Canyon

The mistake that many people make is thinking that the Grand Canyon is just one attraction. When actually it’s a huge national park. There are areas hiking, swimming, cycling, kayaking, and plenty of other activities. You can bird watch, find unique and interesting insects, and spend time exploring the rocky area. There are tours you can go on, helicopter rides, and plenty of other fun and exciting activities.

Visit New York for a city break

If you would prefer a vacation that includes a little more sightseeing, a city break in New York could be perfect for you. There are plenty of deals and discounts on city breaks; it’s just a case of shopping around until you find a suitable one. Look for self-catered accommodation as that will help to keep the cost of your trip down. It’s also a good idea to book tickets to any sights and attractions that you want to visit in advance, as this will save you money. Most attractions offer a 10 percent off online deal, so this is worth looking into.
Just because you don’t want to leave the US for your summer vacation this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a great time.
