We all need to treat ourselves sometimes! And if your family has been through a particularly difficult time recently, you deserve a treat even more. What’s the best treat that every family member will enjoy? A holiday!It can be worth saving up some money and enjoying a big family holiday every couple of years. It’s the perfect time to bond and recharge your batteries. So which are the best holidays for family treats? Here are some you should consider.
Cruises are fantastic as they are often all-inclusive. Once you are on board, you can eat and drink as much as you like without worrying about racking up a huge bill. Not only that, though, but there are also lots of activities to take part on on board. Most cruise ships will have a pool onboard as well as other cool facilities, like modern gyms and theatres. There are often kids clubs that hold competitions and shows for the children. And don’t just assume you’ll be on the ship the entire time; you’ll also be stopping off in different ports. You’ll be able to get off at each one for a day of sightseeing. Cruises have the reputation of being very expensive, but they don’t always have to be. Take a look online for some cruise deals.
Are your kids fascinated with animals? If so, they’ll love going on a safari. Africa is the place to be for safaris, many of which are found in Kenya. You will need to book through a tour company, and they will provide you with your accommodation. A couple of days of your holiday will be set aside for the safari. You’ll be driven around the countryside so that you can see all the wildlife. Keep an eye out for giraffes, elephants and rhinos! Don’t forget your camera; you’ll certainly get lots of amazing photos for your holiday album. There will be plenty of other activities to take part in while on your holiday. Most hotels will have maps of local walking routes, and some might even organise snorkelling and kayaking trips for children.
What better way to relax than chilling out on a sandy beach?! You and your partner can soak up the rays while the kids spend some time building sandcastles and paddling in the sea. There are loads of European beach destinations that offer great deals. You’ll also find many cheap flights, especially if you travel during off-peak times. And don’t be worried about getting bored; there is always more to do than just chilling on the beach. Many beach destinations are surrounded by beautiful countryside which is perfect for gentle hikes. You will also be close to charming towns which the kids will love exploring.
Theme Park Holiday
Kids love whooshing down roller coasters so how about treating them to a theme park holiday? One of the best places to go for a fun-packed holiday with lots of theme parks is Orlando in Florida. This is the location of Disney World, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Universal Studios Florida and so much more! You could easily spend every day of your holiday in your theme park. And if you ever get bored of all the theme parks, there are also plenty of water parks to keep the kids entertained. For an educational day out, take the family to the Kennedy Space Center.
If you are an active family, consider booking an adventure holiday. The types of adventures you do will depend on the country you visit. If you all love horse riding, you could head to the southern states in the USA to stay on a cattle ranch. There are many that offer cowboy style holidays. The kids will be delighted at all the horse riding and be able to help out on the farm. There are also lots of family orientated activities in South Africa. You can try kayaking and snorkelling off the country’s coastline. Australia is another country that is ideal for family fun. The kids can go out in the ocean and learn to surf. If you rent a car, you will be able to drive into the bush to explore. You don’t have to travel too far if you don’t have to, though. For lots of fantastic walking opportunities, head up to Scandinavia. If you want to try some skiing, the Alps is the place to be.
So next time your family deserve a treat, think about booking one of these awesome holidays.
