that are highly praised by experts for offering reasonable rates and activities the whole family can enjoy.
You'll find a variety of family vacation ideas based on votes from thousands of travelers;
- Grand Canyon, Arizona
#1st best family vacation in the USA
"Grand" doesn't begin to do this canyon justice. Measuring approximately 277 miles in length, up to 18 miles in width and a mile deep, this massive chasm in northern Arizona is truly a natural wonder.
- Honolulu, Oahu, Hawai
#2nd best family vacation in the USA
Oahu blends cosmopolitan luxury and breathtaking scenery more than any other Hawaiian island. The state's capital city, Honolulu, showcases the island's urban appeal. Nearby you'll find a host of cultural and historical sites, from the austere USS Arizona Memorial to ornate 'Iolani Palace. In the nearby Waikiki neighborhood, a skyline of high-rises and resort hotels contrasts with sprawling white-sand beaches.
- Yellowstone, Wyoming
#3rd best family vacation in the USA
With dramatic peaks and pristine lakes, Yellowstone is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. Multicolored pools swirl around hot springs; verdant forests weave past expansive meadows; and volatile geysers launch streams of steaming water toward the sky.
- Orlando - Walt Disney World
#4th best family vacation in the USA
There's no other city in the United States — the world, even — that celebrates childhood quite like Orlando. The feeling that you get when you catch the light off Epcot Center's Spaceship Earth (found in Walt Disney World, of course); or from your first sip of Butterbeer in Hogsmeade (located inside Islands of Adventure's Wizarding World of Harry Potter); or when you witness the soaring heights of Shamu's flips (during the "Believe" water show at SeaWorld) — all prove that being a kid is about state of mind, not age.
- Yosemite, California
#5th best family vacation in the USA
One of California's most formidable natural landscapes, Yosemite National Park features nearly 1,200 square miles of sheer awe: towering waterfalls, millennia-old Sequoia trees, daunting cliff faces and some of the most unique rock formations in the United States. But despite its enormous size, most of the tourist activity takes place within a 7-square-mile area of Yosemite Valley.
So... where is your family vacation going to be?
