Perfect Things To Do In The U.S. With Your Family

September 28, 2016

Are you planning on travelling to the U.S. with your family? There are so many different things you can do to make this an amazing experience for you all! There are 50 states to visit, but you’d need to travel for an awfully long time to visit them all and get the most out of them. With that in mind, here’s a guide to some of the most perfect things you can do with your family:

Visit The Theme Parks

You probably already know that there are an abundance of theme parks in the U.S. This is why it’s so perfect for kids and adults who are kids at heart! Some of the most popular include Disney World Orlando and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. If you and your family are all about Disney, you can stay in a Disney themed room and meet some of the Characters. Even if your kids are old enough to know that they’re not real, they’re going to have an incredible time. You can’t forget the Harry Potter craze that’s pretty much swept the whole wide world either. If your kids are wannabe wizards, then this is the place to take them. America has so much more to consider, though. Here are just some of them:

  • Islands of Adventure.
  • The Magic Kingdom.
  • Universal Studios.
  • Six Flags Magic Mountain.
  • Dollywood.
  • Disney’s the Animal Kingdom.
  • Kings Island.

And so much more! It’s a good idea to take at least a few days for a theme park, so you can really take it all in and get around it all. There’s nothing worse than rushing through it when there’s so much to see.

Visit The U.S. Space And Rocket Centre

The U.S. space and rocket centre in Alabama are perfect for kids who are wannabe astronauts or just have a huge interest in space and the planets. It’s so educational and worth a visit. Not only can you see real displayed rockets, you can also see achievements and artifacts of the space program. Many of the exhibits are hands-on, so they’re perfect for kids who are into everything. If you have a child who would just love to visit space one day, this could be for them!

Museums And Memorials

The museums and memorials in the U.S. are vast. Some are free, some charge an entry fee to see. The American Museum of Natural History is a fantastic one. You could all be dinosaur experts before the day is out! This one featured in the film, ‘The Night Museum’, so it’s extra exciting for kids. A couple more that could be worth a visit include:

  • Center for puppetry arts.
  • Children’s museum of Houston.
  • Discovery centre.
  • Exploratorium.

Get A Great View

When you go to the U.S., you’re bound to get a great view at one place or another. It doesn’t matter where you are. Whether you’re looking through a telescope at the top of a mountain, or staring at the Bellagio fountains, you’re going to see things you never thought possible on Holidays to America. One amazing thing about making sure the kids enjoy the view is that it helps them to really appreciate nature. Too many kids spend their time with their faces in their phones, tablets, and other devices. Get them to appreciate the natural beauty of a place like America! Here are some of the best views:

  • Great Sand Dunes National Park
  • Yosemite National Park
  • Arches National Park
  • Kings Canyon National Park

Take A Tour

A really simple way to make your way around America is to take a tour. Some tours are free. Some tours you get to do on bikes or even Segways. This can make exploring somewhere new so much fun!

Get Active

There are a number of opportunities to get active in the U.S. Mountains to climb, hikes to take, and bike tours to enjoy. You’ll be doing a lot of walking too! They say active families are closer than those who aren’t active!

Eat Good Food

It’s sort of a given, but when you’re in the U.S., you’re going to eat good food. The portion sizes should be more than enough, and some of the restaurants over here are incredible. Here are some of the best family restaurants:

  • Denny’s.
  • Red Robin.
  • The Old Spaghetti factory.
  • Mimi’s Cafe.
  • Legal Sea Foods.
  • California pizza kitchen.
  • Olive Garden.
  • Applebee’s.
  • Ruby Tuesday.

Add these things to your bucket list when you visit the U.S. with your family. You’ll have an incredible time!
