The New Year—2022 is just around the corner and you should be ready to celebrate it with utmost zeal and enthusiasm. Apart from celebrating it, you should put something different on your radar to enjoy with your family. Enjoying a family vacation in the following vacation destinations will be a good move for you.
Morocco is the closest place to the UK we’ve been to that feels a million miles away from the UK! It’s an assault on the senses. If you’re heading to Marrakech but don’t want to stay in the Medina with little ones, head for the resort hotels around the Palmeraie. These properties will have large accommodation for families, something that is quite hard to find in the Medina.
There’s so much to see and do in Morocco with kids. We love the contrast of the hustle and bustle of Marrakech to the simple beauty of rural Morocco. If you think Marrakech might be a little crazy for you, hop in your car and you can find exactly the same on a smaller scale in Fez and Meknes. Don’t miss Chefchaouen, the blue city, for its laid back charm and incredible blue hues!
If you’re feeling a little energetic, stay in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and do some hiking.
France is one of the best family destinations in Europe because it has everything. It’s a little like South Africa in the sense it has great beaches, mountains, food and, of course, wine. The thing that France has over South Africa is that it’s much closer to the UK.
France has so much to offer so we try to go somewhere different every summer, usually staying at fantastic family-friendly French campsites. Some of our favourite regions are:
Gorges du Verdon (Provence):It’s just a few kilometres from the beautiful Lac du Sainte-Croix and one of the most beautiful villages in France (plus beaux villages de France), Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. In June and July, you’ll also see fields and fields of lavender and sunflowers.
The Loire:There are a staggering 42 chateaux in the Loire region and we visited a fair few of them. We loved the Château de Chenonceau, Chinon, Chambord and Azay Le Rideau.
Alsace:Make sure to visit Kayersberg, Eguisheim, Riquewihr and Colmar. You’ll see where Disney got its inspiration for the film Beauty and the Beast.
London is a huge favourite with families from the UK and around the world. Big cities, on the whole, can be expensive, but the great thing about London is that there is an incredible number of free things to do in London with kids.
There are also a staggering amount of family-friendly restaurants in London to suit every budget, so London doesn’t have to be an expensive place to visit. Looking for somewhere to stay with the kids? Check out our top London family hotel recommendations.
London is a great year-round destination, although Christmas is our favourite time to spend in London with the kids especially with its huge selection of Christmas markets. It’s good for a weekend city break or a day trip.
There are so many great sights in London, but perhaps the most famous of all is the Tower of London, one of the most impressive castles in England. It has to be on your to-do list for a fun and educational day out with the kids!
The Maldives is no longer exclusively a honeymoon destination and has a number of family-friendly resorts these days. A Maldives family holiday is one of the best all-inclusive family holidays you will ever have. The highlights for the kids are the baby sharks swimming next to the shore and the kids club. The highlights for the adults are the diving and snorkelling, the food, the spa and the kids club.
Canada is a dream destination for nature lovers. The sheer beauty of the Rockies running between Vancouver and Calgary, including the famous Icefields Parkway, is breathtaking as are the many islands, large and small, off the west coast of Canada.
Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and well worth spending some time discovering.
Head to Whistler in summer or winter for some extreme sports action. There’s also a huge amount for families to do in Banff National Park and the less-visited Jasper National Park. If you’re lucky, you might spot either a grizzly bear or a black bear, as well as other indigenous animals.
South Africa is one of our favourite family holiday destinations in the world for all-around awesomeness. Cape Town is one of the most vibrant cities anywhere, and it happens to also be one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with the iconic Table Mountain dominating its skyline and a selection of first-class beaches.
If you’re a wine lover, head to the South African Winelands where you’ll find many family-friendly South African wineries producing world-class wines. This is one of the favourite things to do in South Africa with the kids.
The biggest draw for tourists, however, is the South African wildlife. Whether it’s penguins in Cape Town, whales off the coast of Hermanus or lions in the Kruger, see the guide to family accommodation in the Kruger and top picks for Timbavati Game Reserve family accommodation, you are spoilt for choice.
