Traveling is far different when there’s a family in tow. What once might have been an incredibly fun trip to Las Vegas is a little less likely to happen with the kiddies tagging along. Luckily, there are some vacation destinations that are enjoyable for everyone in the family!
Yosemite National Park
Yosemite is the ideal place for an active, adventurous family to vacation. There are approximately 1,200 beautiful acres of nature to enjoy. There are breathtaking Sequoia trees and amazing rock formations, as well as humongous waterfalls, throughout the park. However, the most popular area of Yosemite is known as the valley. It’s approximately seven square miles and boasts two of Yosemite’s most well-known landmarks, the Half Dome and El Capitan. There are also hiking trails for both the experienced and inexperienced family, some of which are guided. Rock climbing lessons are available locally. Yosemite is full of nature’s wonders that even the kids will have a hard time tiring of.
As you explore Yosemite, you might consider branching out from the often-frequented valley area. There is very likely to be a substantial number of people in that small area so if you want a little more privacy, explore the other 1,193 acres.
