But Where Should We Go for a Family Friendly Vacation in California?

Your family needs to get away from it all, but you're not sure just where that place might be. Or you want to broaden your kids' horizons, and you're wondering how to start. Whatever your reason for taking the family on a trip, check out our Family Friendly Vacation ideas close to home, selected with destinations and activities sure to please every age.

  • Plan your excursions ahead of time so you'll have a rough schedule mapped out before you go. Figure on extra time spent at major attractions.
  • Let kids be a part of the planning experience, but don't overestimate everyone's stamina. Design a flexible itinerary allowing time for impromptu stops and naps to accommodate the short attention spans and limited endurance of young children.
  • Have a 'Plan B' in case of bad weather or temper tantrums.
  • Plan indoor as well as outdoor activities that appeal to the whole family. A family friendly resort can help.
  • Give older teens some freedom to explore or be on their own; they'll appreciate the space and your confidence in their independence.
  • Further involve older kids, and let them plan an entire day for the family to enjoy. Encourage them to do some independent research on the destination.
