Choosing a place to go for holidays is much more difficult now in one sense, but more simple in another. A lot of people visit during ski season, but it’s an incredible summertime destination too. So make sure you check a vacation rental listing carefully for any mention of a nanny cam in the living room before you make a reservation. Grab your besties, your beach bag, and book a girl’s trip to Sunscape Resorts & Spas, where the whole gang can live it up with a Girlfriends Getaway package.

On a road trip vacation you’ve got to stop and smell the roses, check out that cool sight, wander around that funky general store, park at that scenic overlook and take in the glorious view. As a family owned and operated business we take great pride in assuring our guests a fantastic and memorable holiday.

Retreat into the romance of intimately secluded Secrets Resorts & Spas tucked away on some of the very best beaches in Mexico and the Caribbean. What an amazing time we had staying with our two young kids, age 6 and 8, at The Secret Garden. Fort Lauderdale may get a lot of the attention in Broward County, but nearby Deerfield Beach shouldn’t be overlooked, especially by families who want vacations filled with beach days and water sports.

Harbor Island feels far away from it all, but not too far from the amenities that make a good family trip. Recommended Hotel: Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina is a private island off of Tortola, with family-sized accommodations, beaches, and all manner of water sports including from-shore snorkeling and a sailing school.

Bonus: U.S. travelers don’t need a passport to visit St. Croix (or these other vacation destinations that don’t require a passport ). Or camp and explore the remote beaches ‘” there are plenty of state parks along the way. Plan your hotels along your route, never doing more than 6 hours of driving a day – 5 if you’re on a cross-country road trip.
