A Mom's Guide To Kid Friendly Vacation Destinations

It's almost summer time and that means it is time to start planning your summer vacation! Do you ever get tired of going to the same place every summer?! I know I do. My kids really enjoy seeing new places. We try to visit a new city/destination each summer. Last summer we took our 3 kids to Washington, D.C. and we visited the Smithsonian Zoo. Tips for selecting your destination: Try to pick somewhere new! It is so much fun to visit new places and see new sights. Branch out from your usual travel spots. Select a destination that fits your family.

Here's my list of just a few of my favorite kid friendly vacation destinations:

1. Hilton Head, South Carolina is such a fun family friendly vacation spot. Enjoy the beautiful beach, tons of amenities, biking, swimming, lots of wonderful restaurants, etc. We love Sea Pine's Resort. This is a beautiful community that offers tons to do. You can rent a home or you can stay at the Inn. Ranked among the "The Top 100 Hotels in the World" and No. 5 among "The 10 Best Resort Hotels in the South" in Travel + Leisure's 2017 World's Best Awards List

2. Hawks Cay Resort in the Florida Keys https://www.hawkscay.com/
Hawks Cay Resort, Villas and Marina, located on Duck Key in the Middle Florida Keys, is the premier destination for outdoor fun in the sun. Situated roughly halfway between Key Largo and Key West at mile marker 61, this 60-acre, tropical destination is easily accessible by car, boat or plane yet feels worlds away from everyday life. I hope to visit Hawks Cay next summer 2019. They just reopened after major renovations (due to the hurricane last fall). This resort is just absolutely amazing. They have dolphin's on property ya'll. A kids club! A spa! Tons of kid friendly activities, to name just a few: kite boarding, charter fishing, tennis, pools, lagoons, paddle boarding, etc. There is a super cute pirate ship pool, perfect for the younger kids. The resort offers hotel accommodations, suites, villa's perfect for families, marina villa's, etc. Readers of Travel + Leisure called ours the "Best Hotel Kids Program".





3. Paradise Point Resort & Spa, San Diego, CA

Tucked away on gentle Mission Bay in the heart of San Diego, Paradise Point Resort & Spa features comfortable bungalow style guestrooms amidst lush, tropical gardens, tranquil lagoons, and one mile of sandy beach next door to SeaWorld. Scattered across our 44-acre island, you'll find plenty of room to roam and relax with five swimming pools, beach bonfire pits, a marina, five dining venues, an award winning resort and  endless recreation options. 

4. Legoland Florida Resort
https://www.legoland.com/florida/
Located just a short drive away from Orlando, Florida. Legoland is a super popular destination. Complete with Lego themed suites perfect for families this resort is one for the books! Choose from a themed room: Pirate theme, Lego Friends theme, Adventure or Kingdom theme. Legoland Florida Resort is connected to the Legoland theme park. You could easily spend a week here as there is so much to do! The park is huge plus the resort offers a waterpark. 

How cute is this Lego Friends room?!
