Those warm sunny days have slipped away. I am now waking up rugged up from the cold and looking out at the grey clouds. Already I am thinking up ways to escape winter and thaw out where it is summer.
What about a trip to the USA?
Taking the Kids and Family Travel Forum have inspired me with their Summer Vacation Ideas and there’s a lot to choose from in the USA’s 3.79 million miles² or 9.3 million km² made up 50 states and 1 federal republic.
I saw families camping, riding their bikes and frolicking in the water falls at Yosemite National Park.
Older tweens and teens were loving the thrills at Universal Studios.
Then there were the kids; big and small, young and old loving Disneyland. How can you not love Disneyland?
And to top it off you’re out in the warm sunshine where your chills are being baked away.
Did you love the thought of Disneyland but can’t get to LA? Well there’s another one 4000km/2500miles away on the other side of the continent in Orlando.
Don’t want to be in the tropics of Florida? That’s OK there’s Disney Cruises and Disney Resorts all over the place, even all the way out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in Hawaii.
Hmmm, Hawaii is on my bucket list. Oh and the thought of frolicking on white sandy beaches and in the blue sea. Plus my son really wants to learning to surf, and would enjoy visiting plantations and discovering Pearl Harbour.
Perhaps your trip is more likely to be a city stay? Taking the Kids mention there are some Kids Guides to some major US cities, to help your kids discover these great cities in a fun and engaging way.
Or would you rather just step outside the US and visit the Caribbean or Mexico, I loved Mexico (the other time I escaped winter to the Americas).
Plus this is where you can find some great all-inclusive resorts. Our little family loves these types of resorts.
With their great water parks and kids clubs it is truly a relaxing holiday for the entire family.
Are you ready to escape winter and discover where summer’s arriving?
