Top 5 Family Vacation Spots in the US that should not Slip Your Mind

The US is one of the most popular vacation spots in the world. And it is a dream of every vivacious and zealous tourist to visit it. Before you set out for this vacation destination, you should have some prior knowledge about popular vacation spots so that when you plant your feet in this destination, you do not come across any problems. However, those that should not slip your mind include the following:

San Francisco

Because of the weather and beaches, San Francisco is a top area for vacationers. The summers are not too hot and it rarely gets too cold in the city as well. Wineries are in the area, the museums are great, and the beaches are magnificent. This city is big enough to host a wide range of events and activities so you know you'll have a great time. San Francisco is famous for its restaurants, shops, museums, and more. The only trouble is if you go during the summer, you're going to need to book your table/seats well in advance. Winter vacation will ensure you get there at the quieter time of the year and still have the opportunity to eat in the restaurant you've always dreamed of.

If you are in the mood for a spot of culture then the Orpheum Theatre is where you need to be. This magnificent venue which can be found in Market St is known as one of San Francisco's Historical Landmarks. You might just be lucky and catch a Broadway production while you're in town.

The Grand Canyon

Located in Arizona, the Grand Canyon is one of the top ten vacation spots in America. Known as one of the "natural wonders," the canyon draws tourists that enjoy hiking and even those who just want to experience the breathtaking views from the canyon rim for themselves. Whitewater rafting is also available.

There are so many great activities that can be enjoyed in the area of the Grand Canyon as well. There are awesome hiking trails, although you need to be very careful on these. Mule trips can be arranged (call as far in advance as possible) if you want to experience riding one down into the Canyon. If you want to shell out some money, a helicopter or plane tour may be just the thing. The views of the Canyon are absolutely amazing from the air. There are great trails that you can bike on as well, and in some places, you will even find horses that you can ride. Various ranger-led activities also are available for you to take part in, too.


Alaska is a famous vacation spot, and many go there on cruises or to spend some time. It is popular for the fishing offered, and those who enjoy wildlife definitely enjoy vacations to this great state. It is one of the last frontiers. The reality of things is that it likely will remain so. There aren't all that many people who are willing to endure the harsh, dark winters there to make it a permanent home and so for the most part, Alaska becomes a summer playground for those who are attracted to its beauty, its grandeur, its freedom, and its bounty.

According to Alaska's Resource Development Council statistics, 1 out of every 3 visitors to Alaska now is a repeat visitor. They say that almost all of these visitors came first on a cruise ship but are now coming on their own to see and do all of the things that they first saw from a distance on their cruise.

So, whether your tastes are wild and exciting, or even if they run to tame and quiet, Alaskan travel is definitely something that should be on your list of things to do. You too may be hooked by what you see.

New York City

New York City is definitely on the list of the top ten vacation spots in American. It is known as the "melting pot" for a reason. There is a huge amount of culture to experience. There are restaurants with cuisine from all over the world, many galleries and museums, Broadway theater, Ground Zero, and of course the ever-popular Times Square.

There are a lot of things to see, feel and visit in NYC and it takes a few days to accomplish them. If you want to stay a few days or an entire vacation here, furnished apartments are an ideal alternative to hotels, because you can rent a room or an entire house. Vacation rentals in New York City give you the opportunity to rent those rooms, furnished apartments, or houses for how many days you want and you can pay only for the facilities you need.

The Islands of Hawaii

Even though Hawaii is one of the most expensive places to go on vacation, it is still one of the most popular areas, for honeymooners and families alike. Amazing beaches are definitely a great attraction, as are all the activities available. There are many great resorts in the area, and activities include surfing, swimming, mountain biking, hiking, scuba diving, and more.

Akaka Falls is located on the Big Island, just outside of the sleepy community of Honomu. This grand waterfall is 422 feet high. To view it, you will have to take a quick 0.4-mile walk over a smooth trail that winds through a dense tropical forest. You'll notice indigenous trees, bamboo, and tree ferns, and you'll hear quite a few birds chirping as you make your way over the path. At the conclusion of the trial, you will see Akaka Falls in all its beauty.
