10- Maribor, Slovenia
Slovenia is a small European country in the Balkans, and Maribor is a small Slovenian city with a population of fewer than 100,000 people. Maribor would make a perfect family trip memory for your kids whenever you visit it. In the winter, you can go skiing in the nearby resort of Pohorje while in the summer canoeing on the river Drava would bring a smile to your family’s face.
9- Reserva Monteverde, Costa Rica
Costa Rica in Central America is known for its biodiversity, especially in the Monteverde area. You’d be surprised to know that about half of the protected area is dedicated to children which they call Bosque Eternal de los Niños (“Children’s Eternal Forest”)
There are quite a lot of activities to enjoy in Monteverde as a family like hiking, zip lines, horse riding, and even canopy!
8- Florida, United States
No place on earth could get compared with Floridan theme parks, but if you are not into Orlando, rent a car and drive on the beach at Daytona. A great family activity could be Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex where you can have the Shuttle Launch Experience!
7- Nairobi, Kenya
Nairobi may not come into your mind when you hear about a perfect family trip, but where could possibly be better than the place where “The Lion King” was inspired from?
Nairobi National Park is a perfect place to visit with your kids to see lions, giraffes, leopards, and zebras living freely while Nairobi’s skyscrapers are still in sight!
David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is also a great place to see rescued baby elephants who grow up and getting ready to go back to the wildlife!
6- Reykjavik, Iceland
Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik is the safest place in the world to live in and of course to travel to, as a family! Since Iceland is an island, isolated from the rest of Europe, everyone knows each other and there’s seldom a theft reported in Iceland’s history!
As a family vacation to Iceland, your kids can enjoy seeing the northern lights, Icelandic cute horses, and of course the Blue Lagoon (where the powers of geothermal seawater create transformational spa journeys)
5- Antalya, Turkey
Antalya is a beautiful city in southern Turkey which is famous for its beaches and being a winter sun destination for Europeans and Asians. You have endless fun activities to do in Antalya as a family. Besides the Konyaaltı beach, your kids and yourself could enjoy Antalya Aquarium (with 4-D cinema), the Wildpark (specialized for insects and reptiles), and if your children ever get tired of the heat, they can experience an indoor snow park or Antalya’s toy museum!
4- Galápagos Islands, Ecuador
The Galápagos Islands are where you as an adult could become a child again and your children could possibly go nuts by seeing such biodiversity in one place and visiting giant tortoises walking beside them, or the birds flying a few inches away! Who knows? maybe a family trip to the Galápagos Islands transforms your kids’ future into devoted scientists!
3- Tokyo, Japan
The modern Japanese capital, Tokyo might be one of the best options to travel to with your kids since the options for children-related activities in Tokyo are endless. Kids would love Tokyo Disneyland, The Ghibli Museum, and Odaiba. There are hundreds of other day trips from Tokyo to go as a family to make a great memory for your children!
2- Koh Yao Noi, Thailand
Koh Yao Noi is a perfect place to visit with your family. Your children can play at the beach all day long while you relax and enjoy the sun during your vacation! Koh Yao Noi has not been a mass tourism destination so far, so you can easily skip the crowd!
1- Dordogne, France
No matter where you visit in France, you’ll have a guaranteed great time! Dordogne in southwest France is a great department to visit for historic forts, old-style villages, and gorgeous countryside! Plus, as a parent, you can enjoy the endless options in the Dordogne vineyards!
