Summer Vacation, Here We Come!

By Shirley George

Before we know it the daffodils will be blooming and the school doors will be flung open, ending the school year. Now is the time to start planning your family's next summer vacation. Here are some destinations to consider. There is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy!

For those who like roughing it, backpacking might be your next family adventure. The Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming offer scenic rock formations, abundant wildlife, and pristine rivers and lakes for fly fishing. In Colorado, Mesa Verde National Park captivates with ancient Pueblo cliff dwellings along with its beautiful scenery. Sequoia groves and waterfalls will greet you at Yosemite National Park in California. Heading east to the heavily forested Great Smoky Mountain National Park in Tennessee and North Carolina will introduce you to the Appalachian mountain culture. It is important to remember in all backpacking areas to be respectful of nature and leave only your footprints. Since all supplies and equipment are carried by each backpacker, the age and stamina of your children will be a consideration in selecting your destination and length of stay.

If camping is more your style, there are many child friendly environments to consider. While there are many great campsites not too far from home, you may want to consider a road trip to some interesting sites mentioned below. With 127 campsites and 33 cabins, Petit State Park by Little Rock Arkansas will dazzle you with views of its beautiful Cedar Falls. In Branson Missouri, America's Best Campground will let you stay in a tent, RV, or cabin while enjoying the scenery. A short distance away is Branson's amusement parks, dinner shows, and outlet malls. In the Midwest, Fort Welikit Campground in South Dakota has horseback riding, three large lakes, and is an easy drive to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Mountain, and Custer State Park with its buffalo herds. Your road trip might take you this year to the Grand Canyon in northwestern Arizona. The North Rim and the South Rim give distinctively different views of this geographical wonder. The inner canyon can be accessed on foot or by donkey rides to the canyon floor.

History buffs might consider visiting Williamsburg, Virginia. Family packages at the Kingsmill Resort offer a marina, yoga, swimming, golf, and tennis. A short distance away is historic Williamsburg, and Busch Gardens theme park. Boston, Massachusetts with its red painted Freedom Trail lends and easy way for a family to glean aspects of colonial life while strolling along Bean Town's scenic tree lined streets.

Family vacations create a wonderful environment for treasured, life long memories. With careful planning, you will have an exciting and enriching trip.
