2020 had everyone staying indoors for summer. As much as everyone tried to make the best out of the situation, it was still frustrating to sit in the house. In 2021, however, there is hope for holiday goers that things will open up, especially as the vaccine gets more widely distributed. Many people are planning their holidays and trip ideas, and you should be too while still taking all of the necessary health and safety precautions. If you are stuck on which places you could go to, here are some ideas for you and your family to explore this upcoming summer.
Go for a Family River Cruise by the Rhine
A great family vacation idea is going through Europe on a boat ride. You can expect this when you go to Tauck. They have amazing family packages, which makes the whole trip affordable, especially if you have a big family. The boat ride begins in Amsterdam through the cities of Basel, Lucerne, Koblenz, Cologne, and Strasburg. On the eight-day trip, you will get to shore on a daily basis to enjoy the tourist activities in whatever city you are currently in. The trip starts in June and July, so it is best to book your slot now. It would be wise to inquire about their refund options if there are any shut-downs that happen to occur during that time.
Visit World Disney
Holding the title for “the happiest place in the world,” Walt Disney is a must-go for families. There are so many roller coaster rides to go to on and kid-friendly rides. Chances are, you might not get through all of them in a day. Coupled with the epic rides are the castles that make you feel like you just walked into a fairytale. You can also book a room at the Disney resort if you plan to stay a couple of days. The one thing you should look forward to this year is the additional roller coaster rides being added to the list of epic rides. Disney really works at outdoing itself each year. Since Disney is celebrating its 50th anniversary, it is a great place to be this year as well. Be sure to pack masks for everyone in the family and keep hand sanitizer in your purse to use in between all of the rides. This can increase your health safety for your family.
Explore the Mysteries of Egypt
If you love ancient history and your kids are at least in their mid-teens, then Egypt is a great place to check out. Take a trip through the desert and marvel at the pyramids of Giza. You can also visit the Temple of Isis at Philae and snorkel in the Red Sea. The good thing about this trip is, it is affordable, even if you go as a family. You get to enjoy all these amazing activities and can even get a tour guide to take you around the country. This can be a very cultural experience as well for your teens as they learn about different parts of the world.
Visit the Caribbean
If you love the beach and all its amazing features, then the Caribbean is a must-visit this summer. You can go online and have a company plan my trip to the Caribbean if it is your first time. Such sites will help you get the best deals based on your budget. The good thing about going to the Caribbean is the fact that most of the resorts offer free accommodation for children under the age of 12. You can take advantage of this if you have young children. The Caribbean is a beautiful place to visit and is very relaxing as well.
Go to Hawaii
If you do not want to travel out of the country, then Hawaii is the place to be. It is known to be one of the best tourist destinations in the world. The area has amazing white beaches and lava landscape. Have a fun day at the beach with your family. It is home to many amazing natural plants and indigenous animals. There are many family packages that you can take advantage of, so be on the lookout for these offers.
Go Hiking at Glacier National Park
If you love the outdoors and mountain tops, you should go for hut-to-hike trips to the Glacier National Park. It is one of the well-hidden gems of America’s national parks. When you book, you get amenities like hot meals and comfortable beds. You do not have to travel with loads of tents and other camping gear. Anyone with children above the age of 10 can go for these hikes. The park also provides a guide for you, especially if it is your first hiking trip.
If there is one thing the pandemic taught us is we should live every day as if it was our last. If you have been putting off your holiday because of one flimsy excuse or another, now is the time to travel. Plan out your holiday in advance as it will cost you less.
