5 Top Family Winter Vacation Spots

Family Friendly Winter Vacation

Planning a winter family vacation that the whole family will enjoy can be very challenging ~ Whether you want to go somewhere that is warm and sunny or maybe you’re looking for a unique outdoor snow experience. We’ve put together a list of the top family winter vacation spots to help you choose the right destination for your family!

Atlantis Paradise Island

If you’re looking to escape the blustery cold and find comfort in a warm winter destination, then Atlantis Paradise Island, Bahamas is the perfect retreat to warm up and enjoy loads of fun family activities. With a 141 acre water park, that includes 18 water slides, 11 pools and 2 river rides, as well as an 18-hole golf course, breathtaking beaches, 21 restaurants and the largest casino in the Caribbean, there’s something here sure to please everyone!

The North Pole Experience

Why not surprise the kids this year and take them to see Santa in the North Pole! Well maybe not quite that far, but you can get pretty close by taking them to The North Pole Experience in Flagstaff, Arizona. A truly unforgettable family vacation where you can visit Santa’s workshop for a hands-on experience building toys side-by-side with the elves, visit Mrs. Claus’ bakery to enjoy cookies and snowman soup, attend Elf University and even get a private family visit with Santa himself. This is one vacation your kids will never forget!

Disney Cruise

A Disney cruise can be a great alternative to walking the Disney theme parks. If you can live without the roller coaster attractions, you will absolutely love taking a Disney fantasy cruise! The staff pampers you from the moment you step on the colossal, opulent ship. With so many family activities, Disney character interaction, pools, buffets, spas, shopping and live entertainment, your family will never run out of things to do.

Mall of America

Although the state of Minnesota is known for getting up to 70 inches of snow each year, the state’s famous Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota will give your family a vast selection of things to do on your family winter vacation. Start by indulging in a little shopping with no sales tax on clothes and shoes. When you’ve shopped-’til-you-drop have some fun at the largest indoor theme park, or one of the other indoor attractions like Sea Life Aquarium, Nickelodeon Universe, the Minnesota Children’s Museum and so much more!

Rocking Horse Ranch Resort

Embrace the snow and cold this winter and enjoy a family vacation in Highland, New York at the Rocking Horse Ranch Resort. An all-inclusive resort where your family can relish in outdoor snow play, ice skating, tubing, year-round horseback riding and sleigh rides. Then, head inside and splash around the indoor Big Splash water park where it’s 85 degrees all year. Your family will love getting the best of both worlds.

What are your plans for this winter?
