Family Vacation Destinations

Read More

Traveling with the entire family does not have to be stressful, nor does it have to be boring. Just because you have all ages traveling with you for summer vacation this year, from young kids to teens to adults, does not mean that one person has to compromise in order for the rest of the family to have fun. In fact, out of these three best family vacation destinations, you will have trouble deciding which trip you will want to take first, and your family will love picking out some outdoor apparel for the trip as well.

Shep Vacation Destinations

Yellowstone

Perfect for the family that likes to spend as much time outdoors as possible, get ready to put on a brand-new pair of Wolverine hiking boots because Yellowstone has over 3,000-plus square miles of mountains, canyons, geysers and waterfalls to explore. Expect to run into buffalo, elk and maybe even the occasional grizzly bear throughout your outdoor adventures; regardless, the whole family will find something fun to do on this outdoor adventure, just make sure that everyone has the appropriate outdoor attire.

Orlando-Walt Disney World

Just throw on your colorful quilted backpack and get ready to discover countless water parks, the famous Walt Disney World, and the roller coasters at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. However, the young ones are not the only ones that will enjoy Orlando’s charm; aside from theme parks, there are world-renowned golf courses that you will not want to miss, along with a beautiful downtown area that has more retail stores and restaurants than you will be able to visit.

Charleston

This Southern city truly has something for every member in your family. Your family will not be able to pack their leather duffel bag fast enough. Once there, shopaholics can explore the Charleston City Market, Civil War buffs can head to Fort Sumter, and then the whole family can spend the day at one of the city’s many beach towns like Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palm and Folly Beach. Foodies should get ready to try Charleston’s delicious Southern cuisine. Even when it is not the city’s Restaurant Week, the many low-country restaurants feature some of the best meals in the South.
