Planning a holiday with kids can be a bit of a challenge, especially when it comes to planning activities that everyone will enjoy. If you are having difficulty deciding where to go and what to do, below are some of our recommendations.
Explore the Umbrian Countryside
This Italian gem has a long list of attractions and activities that are sure to be well-loved by kids and parents. You can make a splash at Aquapark di Tavernelle, have picnic with the donkeys at La Mulattiera, sail at Acqua Dolce, and have a personal encounter with the animals in Citta della Domenica. Umbria is also renowned for its scenic landscapes and delicious food, so you can really get the best of both worlds here. You can balance out going to fun attractions, with enjoying the surrounding countryside. Unsurprisingly, the accommodation here is also beautiful, and you can wake up to stunning views. There are also lots of villas with private pools, so the kids can enjoy splashing about while you relax on a sun lounger with a glass of wine… bliss!
Have Fun in the Theme Parks in Florida
While Florida is famed for its beaches, there is one more thing that makes it an excellent destination for kids or families in general – its vast collection of theme parks. One of the most popular is Walt Disney World, which is perhaps on the bucket list of almost any child. With an area covering almost 40 square miles, it has a myriad of attractions for people of all ages. Universal Studios is not to be missed as well. Other theme parks that are worth a visit include Legoland, SeaWorld, and Busch Gardens, among others. If flying all the way to the States seems a bit ambitious for you, you could always consider Disneyland Paris.
City Break in Barcelona
A city that is known for its vibrant architecture and laidback lifestyle, kids will surely have fun in Barcelona. Parc Guell is one of the best attractions, providing kids with the opportunity to explore colorful mosaics and fanciful statues. The Aquarium, on the other hand, is an educational attraction that houses more than 400 underwater animal species. For chocolate-lovers, Museu de Xocolata has a whole variety of different activities for children of varying ages. Children between the ages of 6 and 12 get to make chocolate lollipops!
Go on a Safari
If you have kids who love nature and animals, a safari trip will make the perfect holiday idea. All over the world, there are many countries with kid-friendly safaris that the little ones will find exciting. These destinations also offer family-friendly accommodation that are suited for different budgets. Africa is the best region to explore as it is home to a number of safari adventures that will provide kids with an opportunity to see animals that they cannot find elsewhere. Make sure to book your tours only with a reputable operator to prioritize the safety of the kids while still having a good time.
Go Camping in The Dordogne
For unique accommodation, stay away from the conventional hotels. Embrace the great outdoors and take the kids on a camping holiday to the Dordogne. Or if you’d prefer something a little more glam, one of the more luxurious options is Chateaux dans les Arbres, where you can choose from a variety of luxury treehouses to stay in. At Le Moulin de la Jarousse, on the other hand, you can choose to sleep in environmentally-friendly yurts, log cabins, stone cottages, or tree houses. They also offer outdoor activities to keep the kids entertained. Les Cabanes de Vaure, meanwhile, has boutique tree houses where guests can choose to arrive in style by riding a hot air balloon. The Dordogne proves that a camping holiday can be as luxurious as you like.
