Going on a family holiday can be either one of two things; incredibly fun and a treat for everyone, or stressful and more hassle than it’s worth. Although many of us would have experienced the latter from time to time, it’s safe to say that holidays, in general, are an exciting occasion. Not only are they a great experience for the whole family and a good break away, but they give you something to look forwards to, to break up the year. The only problem is, how do you decide where to go? If you’re looking for something new and exciting this year, why not try one of these.
The Sea Side
When you think of a summer holiday, you can often imagine getting on a plane and heading to a hot destination, but that’s not your only option. You can actually enjoy an incredible holiday by staying in the UK. In fact, head to the coast and you’re bound to have a great, if not nostalgic, summer holiday. Cornwall or Brighton, or even Blackpool if you’re up north, can be a great break away, complete with ice cream cones, fish and chips and a good old fashioned disco.
Sometimes, you need a break from the ordinary. When that’s the case, why not switch your sun holiday for something in the city? If you’ve never been to London, or if you’ve only ever been for work, it can be the perfect destination for the entire family to enjoy. See Big Ben, go on the London Eye, take pictures at Madame Tussauds; just make sure that your summer break is jam packed full of fun.
And, of course, if your children are still young, but old enough to enjoy it, then it could be time to take them to Disneyland Florida. There’s nothing quite like seeing their faces as they experience the magic of the place, and there really is nothing like seeing the parks in all of their glory. You will love visiting the theme parks and even doing the Warner Bros Studio Tour. But, before you go, just make sure you can get the ESTA visa waiver with the passports you have, otherwise, they may need renewing.
If you want to do something low key and have a peaceful, relaxing break away from everyday life, then why not enjoy a spot of camping in France? There is a range of sites to choose from all over the country, but visiting the more rural areas of the north might just be what you need. The French countryside is incredible; it would also be a memorable experience for the entire family. What child wouldn’t love to go fishing, cycling, and walk into the nearest village for fresh croissants and baguettes?
And, if you’ve not been away for awhile, as your children have grown, you might want to book yourself a typical British holiday and head to a European coastline or island? Spain and Greece are home to the perfect places for summer-long sun. Grab your beach towel, pack some sunscreen and start dreaming about the cocktails that are already calling your name.
